Manicures and Pedicures have been popular for at least the last 15 years. Your hand are visible to everyone, taking care of your nails on you hands and feet is good style. In the summer, showing the toes is just going to be your everyday fashion. Do you have to go to the spa to take care of your hands and feet.? No and it doesn't have to be that expensive, you can do this maintenance at home.
There are a lot of fun colors for your nails or there is the natural manicure. So, what is up with the French Manicure? It looks like your trying to combine natural nails with showing off your manicure. I have seen women with tasteful French Manicure's, but there are some with the nails in an unnatural shape and the white is just not natural for any nail. Then this French Manicure has now taken hold on the toes. This is not a natural look, either. It looks pretentious. What statement are you trying to make with this nail effect? The oddest look is to see a women with her French Manicure on hands and toes, showing her style, but then the rest of her look belies the idea that she really cares how she looks.
Elegance is not to draw undue attention to yourself. Unduly long or unnaturally shaped nails draw attention to the nails as quickly as chipped polish on either hands or feet.
