51 Quirky Diagonal French Tip Nails for 2022

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.
