"Frombré" is the Classy New Nail Trend I'm Asking For at My Next Mani Appointment

As a beauty editor, I’m always on the lookout for the next big nail trend. During my morning Instagram scroll, I came across one of my favourite accounts for manicure inspiration—celebrity manicurist Harriet Westmoreland—and her latest post has given me some some serious thought for my next manicure. Enter “frombré” nails: the French manicure and ombre hybrid that’s here to cement itself as the next big nail trend.

French Ombré Nails

So what exactly is the frombré mani? As Westmoreland shares on her post, it’s “A mix between French and ombré – a blended French tip finished with a super gloss top coat.” It’s a softer take on the classic French manicure which sees a precise line at the tip of the nails. With French ombré, you’ll typically see a soft, sheer creamy white hue on the tips blended into a pink or peach base to create an ombré look. It’s elevated and timeless while being a little bit different from the minimal nail designs we’ve seen lately. If you loved last year’s milky nails, you’ll want to get on board with the frombré trend at your next appointment.
