Chic Black French Manicure – Best French Manicure Kits in 2019

The classic French manicure has never gone out of fashion. The height of elegance and Parisian chic, they trend every single season. However, never to be outdone by the fast moving nail art fashionistas, the French mani has moved with the times, and this season, the look has been given an edgy twist – the black French manicure. 

Matte black nail bed with gloss tips, isolated black tips, checkerboard tips, a minimalist stripe of black across the tips – the list is endless, and I’m trying out the best way of making these designs simple and accessible. 

 

1) Kiss Acrylic French Tip Nails – Ace of Clubs

What Makes it Great

This neat set of pre-designed, reusable black French tip nails is perfect for any occasion. If you’re in a rush, or want to look super glam with minimal effort, these are a must. With 28 nails of differing sizes, you could even mix and match, using traditional tips on some nails, and saving these for a dazzling accent nail. I was pleasantly surprised at how durable these were, and for fake nails, they felt really good and lightweight. They lasted until day 12 when one pinged off – fortunately I was at home and no one saw!

Where it Could be Improved

It might be a nice idea to include a set of blank nails, or some different designs in the same pack.

2) AZUREBEAUTY Powder French Manicure – Black

What Makes it Great

This pot of powder is the blackest of blacks, creating deep, light absorbing nails. Whether you choose a matte finish, high gloss, or a mix of the two, the black pigment gives a really professional looking manicure. If you want to do french tips, you need to use an adhesive wrap to mask off the parts your don’t want black, but that’s easily done. With my usual gloss top coat, my nails had only just started lifting on day 19 – very impressive. 

Where it Could be Improved

The pot is quite narrow, and the powder can ‘puff’ out of the pot when you are dusting your nails. It’s well worth putting down some paper to catch it.

3) Vrenmol French Manicure Kit

What Makes it Great

This kit from Vrenmol gives you the option of black or white, with two bottles of high quality polish, and a set of sticker guides to make life easier. By making full use of the guide, I used both colors across my French tips, and felt really pleased with the compliments I received as a result. Not as durable as some, the polishes still  lasted for just over two weeks before they developed a tiny chip. 

Where it Could be Improved

The odor was quite strong when I undid these bottles, but opening a window helped.

A decent kit that includes everything you need to follow the latest black French mani trend, or stick to the traditional if you prefer.
