French manicures are believed to date back as far as 1930 Paris, but their boom in popularity was born in Hollywood, California during the 1970’s. Story has it, Orly’s nail polish creator Jeff Pink noticed that on movie sets, actresses would have to remove and reapply their nail polish between scenes to match their outfits. Jeff Pink found this practice tedious and time-consuming, and in turn suggested a natural, two-toned look: the French manicure. From there, this classic style found its strut on the fashion runways worldwide. Although the origins of the name “French manicure” are a topic of debate, some believe the style was most notably recognized on the runways of Paris, and thus it was named after the French runways.
