What does pink and white mean at a nail salon?

What is the difference between French manicure and pink and white?
The colors and nail techniques used are the main differences between these styles. A French manicure is a classic style using a nude or pink nude nail polish base with white polish on the tips. Pink and white are similar, but the base is always a shade of pink, and the manicure typically uses gel polish.
These styles are gorgeous and timeless, so you can wear either for a refined look. But French manicures are better if you prefer a classic style with basic polish, while pink and white nails are best to add more color or if you prefer gel nails.
