A classic with a twist

Ever heard of micro-French nails? Well, thank Margot Robbie for bringing them into the limelight at the Academy’s pre-Oscars lunch. Her understated yet chic manicure perfectly complemented her classic ensemble – a vintage Chanel suit from ‘94, no less!

Micro-French nails, as coined by Robbie’s nail guru Betina Goldstein, put a modern spin on the traditional French manicure. Think super thin white tips delicately separated from the nail base. It’s subtle yet oh-so-stylish.

Even at the Oscars, where bold manicures usually steal the show, it was all about clean, fresh, and natural-looking nails. Celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Zendaya, and Emma Stone opted for simplicity. Vogue even dubbed it ‘the nonicure’.

Short and sweet

So, what’s the big deal with a baby French manicure or nonicure? Well, for starters, it’s a breeze to maintain! The nude hue effortlessly camouflages any regrowth, meaning you can skip that salon trip until absolutely necessary. Plus, this style really shines on shorter nails, especially with a cute square shape–just ask Goldstein!
