I like french manicures to be slightly pinky to tone down the white tips but it is the only treatment I like on fingernails - block colours look old to me and don't get me started on jewels and flowers
Nails to be round not square and not overly long
and never, no never, to have a french manicure on toe-nails that is just gross
I like an "American" nail and actually franklymydear I think this might be what you like too, a "French" nail has pink or clear base, a bright white tip and clear overcoat but an "American" nail has a pink overcoat so that stops the white tip being quite so fluorescent in UV light.
Whenever I've managed to grow my nails I French manicure them (or, as pasturesnew says, American manicure) and it always looks lovely IMO. Just like normal nails but nicer and cleaner and shinier! Doesn't last long on me though.
