Another classic and iconic nail style is the French manicure. If you are tired of the increasingly similar French manicure, you can try a creative French manicure. Incorporate the fall vibe by matching the color scheme of your French manicure to make them look different!

Next, MelodySusie shows you how to make a French manicure that matches the fall vibe.

French Manicure Base Color Choices

If you want to try the understated and natural trend of nail art, the best choice for the base color is bound to be nude color that demonstrates health and clean.

You can also opt for a creamy white color with just one coat.

You can even leave your nails completely naked with just one coat of glossy nail gel polish. But this would probably be more applicable to people who want to apply the color on their own fingers and would be more demanding on the condition of the nails and their daily care.

These colors can hide imperfections on the nails while enhancing their texture, making them look clean, neat, and healthy.

5 Steps to Make a Classy and Delicate French Manicure

Step 1: Remove gel polish
