French Manicures

The French manicure has been around for decades. While it has evolved into several new versions, this salon believes in investing in the timeless style.

Legend has it that Cleopatra wore red nail polish. Colour can say so much. Red lips say “daring”, a black gown says “timeless”, and a white sundress says “fresh”. Neon says “I wasn’t around in the ‘80s.” And a French manicure? It’s neutral, understated and goes with absolutely anything. You see it almost as much today as you did in the ‘30s. Some say the ever-stylish Parisians were the first to wear the nude base with crisp, white tips. Others say Max Factor invented it and the ‘French’ label is there for effect. After all, fashionistas do love Paris. Wherever it came from, the French manicure has remarkable staying power.

Some fashion experts say it’s very “last decade”, but women all over the world still walk into salons and request the elegant standby: pink, beige or nude base tipped with pure white. The French manicure goes easily from work to drinks to the red carpet. It can also be one of those make-up tricks that make you look naturally, effortlessly perfect. People standing 10 feet away may wonder if your beautiful nails are polished at all. Truly effortless, though, they are not. French manicures require a steady hand and real precision if they’re going to look good. It is not a quick paint-and-go manicure, but it’s doable with some practice. The experts at Joz Salon & Spa save you the trouble as they have mastered the art of the French manicure. They follow all the steps to achieving perfectly manicured nails with precisely applied white tips.
