Nothing screams early 2000s nail trends more than a square-tip French manicure. Whether you were a salon regular or going the press-on route à la KISS, this was the look to have. Meghan Markle just brought back this quintessential look on Tuesday night while out with Prince Harry.

To modernize the look, she kept her nails relatively short and the French tip small. And take note — this micro Frenchie is one of the many ways to rock the classic French, which is back and sure to dominate nail looks for 2024.

"A French tip manicure is one of my favorite nail looks," celebrity manicurist Brittney Boyce previously shared with InStyle." It’s simple yet cool, and you can play around with any color and combo that you want to achieve different vibes."

Markle tends to keep her nails short, simple, and demure, sporting nudes and pale pinks — a style choice likely influenced by royal protocols. But for the premiere of Bob Marley: One Love in Kingston, Jamaica, she decided to jazz up the look with the added visual interest of the tip and a tad more length to support the square shape.

"French tips on square nails look great no matter the length of the nail," says Sonia Sanchez, nail artist and brand ambassador at Aprés Nail. Just like tendrils and claw clips, French manicures are yet another Y2K beauty trend that's back — and we're here for it.
