The 2022 American Music Awards are underway, and tonight’s attendees have been showing out left and right. Dove Cameron added a pin-sharp floating eyeliner to her makeup look, and Tinashe proved once more exactly how versatile Bantu knots are. Still, the biggest breakout beauty trend to grace the red carpet was none other than the french manicure.
The classic nail look saw its heyday in the late ’90s and early 2000s and has made an epic return alongside other retro beauty trends like spiky updos and supermodel lips. The manicure typically encompasses a thick white line at the tops of the nail followed by a soft pink nail bed. Over the years, the look has evolved to include other iterations like baby tips and chrome finishes, to name a few.
The nail-art design has been spotted tonight on stars like Niecy Nash, Latto, and Kim Petras — and the show is only just getting started. If you’re looking for french-manicure inspiration, keep scrolling for the best takes on the trend at the American Music Awards.
