Jennifer Lopez Just Made the Case for Pierced Manicures


Maximalist Nail Design Inspiration from J.Lo

Between disco curls and the mob wife aesthetic, maximalism is clearly having a moment in the world of fashion and beauty. Jennifer Lopez, always at the forefront of trendsetting, is embracing this bold trend with her latest nail designs.

The Latina Mani by Tom Bachik

J.Lo’s go-to nail artist, celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik, recently shared a behind-the-scenes look at the nail design created for Lopez’s semi-autobiographical album and film This Is Me… Now. Dubbed a Latina mani by Bachik, the mixed-medium style pays homage to Lopez’s Puerto Rican heritage with intricate Hispanic-Catholic symbolism.

The ornate design features classic Hispanic-Catholic iconography such as crosses, roses, rosaries, and the Virgin of the Sacred Heart, all intricately overlaid on a medium-length squoval base. But the standout feature? Literal hoop piercings adorning each middle finger, adding a unique and edgy twist to the look.

Creating the Look

To achieve this stunning manicure, Bachik first prepped Lopez’s nails using the Tweezerman x Tom Bachik Ultimate Nail Care Set for a meticulous finish. He then applied Apres Nail Gel X tips in Maisie and painted them using the brand’s gel colors in Vintage Carnation and Forgotten Film. Finally, the nails were adorned with maximalist Catholic nail art, completing the bold and intricate design.

Joining the Maximalist Nail Trend

J.Lo’s pierced manicure perfectly aligns with the resurgence of grunge goth glam in the beauty world. Celebrities like Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian have also been spotted rocking similar bold nail designs, showcasing the trend’s popularity and versatility.
