French manicure design with pattern

It is worth noting that “oblique French” is considered by many to be a background “with a twist” for other decor.

Beveled corners are amazing for the most popular designs: leaves, snowflakes, flowers and animalistic prints.

But the French style is not always just a background. Diagonal coloring can be part of a whole pattern. Although such variations are much rarer.

French manicure design with sequins

Glitter can be understood as anything: kamifubuki (confetti, panettes), gilding, yucca flakes, rhinestones, foil, tape, wax, shimmer, or glitter. All of these options are successfully used in tandem with an slanted French.

Glitter can not only complement the pattern, they are actively used to cover the same beveled edge.

French manicure design with rainbow

Rainbow “slanted French” is made in two variants:

  • in the form of several diagonal strips of different colors on each nail, as shown in the photo below;

  • each finger is painted one color of the rainbow.

The first solution should be treated with a degree of caution. Such a manicure is very bold and bright. There is a chance to “get carried away” and overdo it with embellishment. Especially carefully in this case, you need to treat sequins and rhinestones.

The second solution looks more stylish and elegant. It is suitable for everyday wear, going to school or work.

French manicure nude

This category includes designs of two kinds:

  • classic white tips combined with a natural nail plate;

  • A beveled edge in nude shades: beige, milky, pale pink, etc. To separate the painted tip from the main area of the nail, usually make a diagonal of gel polish of a different color or of glitter. The main thing is not to choose too bright colors for the “border” – it can lose the nude effect.

French manicure minimalism design

The style of minimalism is always on trend. Fashionable nails are made in two variants:

  • Drawing is applied only on one nail;

  • The edge of the nail plate, no more than 1 mm wide, is given to French nails.


Bright tips are a great summer solution. The saturated shades combined with a neutral background look smart, but at the same time neat and elegant.

Colored french on half a nail on a slant can also be done. But such a design does not look as elegant.

Double (two-color)

The oblique stripes of two shades add a certain chic to the pattern.

They can be placed close or at some distance from each other.

Contrasting colors make the pattern especially spectacular.


This option was sent to the bottom of the list for one reason – it is no longer trendy.

Yes, the wide half nail French is still painted, because every design has its fans. But it was at the height of fashion many years ago. Now there are more interesting and stylish solutions to the “slanted French”.


Whatever the final pattern: monochrome or bright and catchy. The main thing is that the chosen solution is appropriate and beautiful.
