love the V french tip nail trend. A bolder and more modern take on the original french tip nail style. A V tip nail is a modern take on a classic style and a very versatile choice. It can be subtle sleek or you can really be bold with the design.
There’s a lot you can do with it, but here’s my top list for some v tip nail design inspiration to give you some ideas (or completely copy)!
One of the more common styles has this bold black tips making an edgy black nail design. You can vary the thickness to suit your taste.
This longer press-on nail set has a subtle colorway and a sharp v-shape tip but the 3D accent nail is a perfect touch.
Or if an accent nail isn’t your thing but you like a little more color on your set – this press-on set has a sharp tip and a cute colorway.
A little narrower and with white tips this time (my personal favorite with this style).
Feeling a bit bolder? How about these red v tips
With these gels, you can see a much narrow bit of black at the end. You don’t need long nails or a big block of color for the v tips design.
Now, these stiletto nails are fantastic and really show your creative edge. Small beads on mostly matte nude nails but with colorful v french tips at the end? I love them.
I love the little stars and asymmetry of this design. Just a little bit of blue to give you that sharp v tip look. If you like the shade (like I do) check out my royal blue ombre nail designs as well.
I like the gems here but this is also a good example of some stronger, sharper black v french tips and I like the little bit of glitter in there too.
This design can work with bold colors, and it’s hard to have really yellow nail designs without being bold.
Pink v tips are cute and they’re also a little less blatant than royal blue or yellow. They can show your cute side without really getting in the way at the office so they’re perfect for everyday use too.
This is the other end of that spectrum. This rainbow v tip french nails will get noticed and they’re so fantastic. You could even do a slight twist on this with some v tip flame nail designs. If you do, I want to see it. Better yet, I want that on my nails.
Or how about a darker green? I like the outer fingers being a solid deep color with the middle two having that thin v tip design.
If you do have a thicker v tip, you could do something a little bolder than just solid color. These coffin nails are a perfect example of this with a bit of teal glitter on the tips. Fantastic.
Or add a little detail to one of the nails like the little stars on this one.
You don’t need to stick to a single color for your v tip nails. While these are short nails you can still see different colors used on the tips.
I’ve actually used this nail art before on our spider web nails list but I love them so much and it’s a fantastic example of well-defined v tip nails being mixed with a different style.
This design has a great combination of little white hearts against a matte finish (which I love) but the white v tip design really highlights them and there’s just that little bit of gold to define the tip.
Most of these are thicker examples of a standard v french tip nail but I really like what they’ve done with the ring fingernail. That transparent look rather than the white makes them stand out.
If you want to loosen the boundaries on what you consider a v french tip – this might count. Heck, they look that fantastic we should call them whatever we want and do them anyway. You could do more defined v shape tips in this same style if you wanted. Honorable mention?
I’d be a fan of using two different shades of blue to create these v french tips but the little beads in the center just make these perfect. I also like the gloss and matte finish used here and the v tip comes all the way back to the finger. I should move this to the top of the list.
And to finish the list with a little bit of fun we have these bright colorful coffin nails with white v french tips. Cute and playful!
Curses, this nail tech found my weakness. The only thing I’m loving more than the v-French tip style is multiple vibrant pastel colors and a subtle hint of gold glitter. This is some of the best nail art I’ve seen.
This one is a little bit different. A V French cut from the moon of the nail instead of the tip. Definitely not something you’re going to see anyone else with. Powder was used to make this fantastic-looking design and that gives it a really nice finish.
Long acrylics with matte baby pink and a white V-tip. If you look closely there’s a subtle hint of pink on the edges to really set them apart.
Short square nails have been making a comeback and I’m here for it. This set also has a little bit of rhinestone to accent the moon of the ring finger.
If you want more of a sophisticated look for the office or to match an outfit these nude acrylics to shades of brown don’t take attention away while still making a statement. The matte finish is a good mix.
Or you can try a similar subtle look with less work.
If blending in isn’t your thing you could split your V-tip into duo tones and add as much gold glitter as you can get your hands on.
Another variation of a duo-tone french tip but this time with two tones of blue and this thinner tip.
If royal blue wasn’t luxury enough these larger stones fit nicely within the V shape.
You don’t need the tip on every finger. These acrylics have a full glitter nail as an interesting accent on the middle finger.
Or, looking beyond the accent nail, you don’t even need to have the tips stay even.
I’m loving this look. Shorter square sculpted acrylics with more tip than natural nail showing. The colorway is classic and the style is pretty modern, a great combination.
Or the opposite, in both size and colorway. Still with short natural bases but this thin black V french looks sleek. 🖤
V-Cut French tips stand out! ✨ If hot pink nails weren’t cute enough, this is a nice touch.
Mostly solid nails but this time we’re using the Frenchie as an accent nail rather than the other way around. The color contrast is just a bonus because it works for me.
Glittery blue bear claws with fierce cut tips and a whole lot of glam. 💎
Duo-tone tips are just not common enough. I love them but sometimes I feel like I’m an island. The V-Tip style is just made for this look though. It makes it clean and easy and gives you this fantastic look.
I don’t know what I love more. The white and back contrast with these sharp tips or the playboy bunny nail art. I just like the whole thing.
These acrylics make an interesting mix. Some long tapered square nails with a square micro tip to accent. Even if you skipped the dragon design (you shouldn’t!) this would still make a unique set.
Another take on the duo-tone (this time with black and white) but look closely at the lines that come into the tip. There’s just a slight curve to them before they reach the point.
