The french manicure is a great look for any occasion. Here's a new twist on an old classic. Watch these step-by-step instructions on how to give youself a colorful french manicure. What does your nail polish color say about you? Check it out here.

How to Apply a Colorful French Manicure (video)- http://www.ivillage.com/nail-art-how-apply-colorful-french-manicure/5-h-506706

I'm torn on this look (but maybe that is because I've only ever done the basic french manicure before)!  Do you like the look of the colorful french manicure? Have you ever given it a try?

It looks fun on other people but it's not for me.  I'll do interesting colors if I don't have to look too much like a responsible adult in the upcoming week (ie not meet with clients or do a sales pitch), but nail art of any kind, including colorful French manicures, is a little too much for me.  (My overall style is kind of like Michelle Obama's - though she has far more things to dress for than I do, LOL! - but you get the idea.  Mrs. Obama rocks cool nails but not nail art, as far as I can tell.)

Hi Terre, Hmmmm. I'm not sure why it isn't working! I clicked the link and it worked for me. What browser are you using?
