If you’re at all tapped into beauty buzz of the now, you know that French manicures are pretty much everywhere at the moment. And playful iterations of the classic nail art are taking over salons and NailTok feeds alike — namely vanilla French vibes, micro French art (sometimes with a sparkly twist), red nail theory-inspired takes, pastel Skittle French tips, and more.

What’s more, countless A-list celebs have been turning to unique versions of the French mani, with names like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber, Laverne Cox, Kourtney Kardashian, and more rocking the look on red carpets and beyond.

As for the latest French manicure moment to go completely viral? The invisible French trend, sometimes referred to as the double or outlined French manicure, is officially in just in time for the warmer months. And TBH, it pretty much looks exactly as you might imagine. As if creating a cut-out with just the borders of the French tip painted, your mani’s sheer base hue pops through the thin lines (be them a traditional white hue, or really whatever color you’d like) for a vibe that gives off those clean, minimally chic aesthetic.

Into the look? Here are six different ways to make the trend all your own.
