It's a laconic, naturalistic appeal. When it is applied, the nail plate is covered with a bed base (most often in beige, pink or peach colours), and the tip of the nail is painted white. The base for this manicure can be a natural nail or a manicure done with gel, gel lac, acrylics or tips. This option is perfect for medium length nails.

It differs from the classical version by the richness of the colour range (not only white and beige-pink).

Stained french. When it is created, the tip of the nail is enhanced with acrylic or coloured gel. A stained nail is often decorated with sequins or acrylics.
