Among the celebs, for example, those that have been renamed go crazy milk-bath nails. It is a milky-colored manicure, hence the name, on which to apply micro dried flowers or to show off simple. It is the latter, for example, that has depopulated on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival, chosen by many, including Kristen Stewart, Elle Fanning and Bella Hadid.

The colors can also be applied on the same nail, as proposed, for example, by PassioneUnnail in the latest collection Pimp My Nails.
French yes, but very colorful
It remains a great classic, but the white bezel is too retro. After the reverse French, it’s time for colorful bezels, that add dynamism to any hand. Many celebs who have already fallen in love with it. From Belén Rodriguez, who a few weeks ago sported an alternating color manicure made by Michela May, aka Lacoachdelle nailsto Blake Livelywho at the last New York Fashion Week had succumbed to a creation by Elle Gerstein, in art Enamelle.
