I’ve always been a fan of Frenchies. I tried diagonal French tips
the same day I first saw them. This look is a modern twist on a long-standing staple design, a simple way to make a bold statement. Flexible enough to work with any outfit or occasion, this also means an overwhelming amount of options.
We’ve scrolled through
thousands of diagonal Frenchies to share our favorites. There’s something to inspire you, from the basic lines that you can easily create yourself to the intricate designs to show your nail tech.
If you’re looking for a modern twist on this look, you might also try
thin French tips. You could combine that look with the diagonal lines for a real chic look. You might also want to check out v-French tips which also use some diagonal lines to create a unique look.

These short nails are painted with a simple light pink base and are topped with a curvy diagonal blue French tip. The two colors go quite well together.
