Je detest a French manicure. Can't quite explain why, I just can't quite get behind it. But I have to say that the new, modernized versions are making me take a second look. This one takes a two tone metallic approach with a matte grey base and a shiny tip that is near perfection. If you're unwilling to commit to the metallic trend in clothes, nails are your next best bet and it looks so jazzy, doesn't it?
