If you've been noticing more and more people wearing French manicures, it's simply because they've made a major comeback. And while some are donning it in its classic form, most people are taking the creative liberties with it.

Rainbow arches are in, angular white tips are in, and even ombré French manis are in. And recently, we've noticed people adding a little extra jazz to their nails by throwing in sparkle and shine. Rhinestones, glitter, and even dangly jewels are showing up on French manicures — it's a total disco fever dream.

So, if you're ready to hit the dance floor and belt out ABBA all night, here are some of our favorite bedazzled French manicures to inspire your next trip to the salon.

Rhinestone French Manicure

An easy way to step up the classic look is by using nail glue to stick on a few tiny rhinestones all over your French manicure.
