This mani is literally on a silver streak.
Beauty trends are known for being reborn over and over again. But what makes them new and noteworthy is that they always come back with a fresh twist. Take French manicures, for example. Sure, the classic version won't ever go away, but today's iterations are more edgy and innovative. Case in point: silver French tips. We've spotted this metallic mani all over our feed lately, and we love that are so many ways to make this look your own. You can opt for subtle shimmery silver tips or a bold molten silver French mani—the choice is yours. Ahead, we've rounded up 14 head-turning examples of silver French tip nail ideas.
A French mani is already elegant, but adding silver and pearls to the mix makes this nail design even more sophisticated. You can find an assortment of nail pearls here.
Everything about this silver French mani is unexpected (in the best way). The negative space on the ring and index finger creates a cool contrast. Meanwhile, the silver star decals add a playful touch.
Instead of using traditional silver nail polish, this mani creates a French tip using silver gems. The barely-there nude base makes this bejeweled look pop even more.
This manicure reminds us of the starry night sky. Add a few flecks of glitter nail polish on top of your silver French tips to add extra elegance to the look.
A molten metal design adds texture and a futuristic feel to a silver French tip manicure. And when you're wearing statement nails like these, you don't even need to think about wearing accessories.
Putting on the Glitz
If you're not into nail art, a swipe of silver glitter polish along the tips of your nails is all you need. This subtle shimmery mani is perfect on its own.
To the Point
These perfectly pointy silver French tips are an instant standout. Manicurist Betina Goldstein used an Essie polish in the shade Apres-Chic to achieve this striking silver French tip.
A single accent nail can make a total statement. Here, the lone solid silver nail really pops against the rest of the silver French tips.
If you'd rather keep the silver accents to a minimum, this mani is for you. Only two nails feature silver glitter polish, while the rest are coated with a stunning nude lacquer.
Gorgeous and glittery, this design is easy to recreate. All you have to do is dab a silver glitter polish onto the tips of your nails, applying it more sparsely as you go down. For an extra touch, use white polish to draw dainty stars on a few of your fingers.
This mani is beyond cool. Not only is there a silver chrome French tip, but manicurist Brittney Boyce also etched little designs into the nail tip to give it an added element.
Red and Silver
Red and silver are a classic pairing, and they work perfectly together when combined on a French tip. While this mani definitely has a holiday feel, it can work year-round.
These nails exude an edgy, rocker vibe. The elongated spiky silver tips are incredibly eye-catching and bound to spark conversation.
