But everyone loves the French

One of my favorite aspects of getting ready for prom is getting a manicure. I'm terrible at painting my own nails and I love the massages that come with the manicure application -- so I'm excited about venturing to my manicurist today after lunch. Appropriately, I stumbled upon a post by The Daily Obsession about French manicures.

It reads:
Editors and other fashion and beauty insiders are known for their love of anything French. Even if they don’t love it- they say they do. But when it comes to manicures, there seems to be nothing as taboo in this industry as a French manicure. I don’t even know why- I just know that I dare not sport those white tips at press events. If you have to, they say, then get an American manicure at best.
Anyway, call me tacky and a little too obsessed with all things shiny, but I love a natural polished American manicure with a single rhinestone on the nail -- but I actually don't think French manicures are bad when they're real nails and not acrylics. This is coming from a girl who rarely applies more than a coat of clear polish on and only owns three bottles of nail polish though.

What do you think?
