Now that Jennifer Lopez has gotten an American manicure, everyone else is sure to follow suit. Because the multihyphenate has always been a beauty trendsetter, and this trend is an especially chic take on the classic French manicure.
It’s also very minimalist and peak quiet luxury, both of which continue to conquer contemporary style. From clean makeup to the glazed donut nails that Hailey Bieber made the most searched beauty trend on TikTok, it’s clear that the “less is more” rule is here to stay.
Following the same subtly chic technique, J.Lo stole the spotlight with the ultrasophisticated mani. The “On the Floor” and “Waiting for Tonight” singer posed for her manicurist Tom Bachik (whose clients also include Selena Gomez and Camila Cabello), sporting an American manicure that perfectly matched her tight Dolce & Gabbana dress thanks to its nude base.
As for what the American manicure looks like? Unlike the classic French manicure, it’s much more lenient in terms of design texture. Not at all strict, it allows variation in the shades of finishes.
You can go for a milky design like Jennifer Lopez’s, or change the neutral tones for vibrant colors. In fact, one of the main characteristics of the American manicure is how daring and revolutionary it can be without losing its elegance.
