There's a reason why the French manicure has easily become one of the most popular nail designs in history. It's simple, timeless, and adds a whole lot of femininity to a girl's hands. While we're all for dainty and classic designs, there are days when you're feeling bold, or even funky. Try these modern girl's version of the French mani for a strong and fun nail game.

Swap the usual white tips for sleeker and edgier black tips instead! While black is usually more rugged compared to fresh white, make no mistake because this French mani upgrade is still just as chic as the traditional one.

It's no secret that hair and lip trends have already been bitten by the ombre bug and it looks like ombre nails are a thing now, too! Instead of going for defined white tips, go ombre instead for a cooler take on the French manicure.

Don't limit yourself to just whites, nudes, and blacks. Play with different colors like blues, purples, and fun pinks for a funkier French mani.

Adding a stroke of black color to the side of your nail instead of the tips is an easy and cool way to upgrade the classic French manicure.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
