Embrace Spring with 35 Radiant French Manicure Ideas

French nails are both classic and versatile. This is why they are the perfect anchor to a fresh spring manicure.

I love French nails. Brittney Boyce, celebrity manicurist, says that they look great with most shapes and lengths. They also help to give the illusion of growth when you use a milky base color. There are many color options to choose from for spring. Anything in a pastel shade will look great.
