Leave it to Jennifer Lopez to nail one of TikTok’s biggest manicure trends like NBD. For the premiere of her new bridal film forced marriage, Mrs. Affleck worked with her main manicurist, Tom Bachik, on a nail look that would beautifully complement her sheer, shimmering Valentino couture gown and megawatt diamond chandelier earrings. They opted for “lip gloss nails,” AKA a subtle, barely-there hint of color that almost exactly matches your natural nail tone with plenty of shine, just like a classic neutral pink lip gloss. However, since this is J.Lo, you must have some sparkle, so Bachik painted on a glamorous silver glitter tip to add a romantic and glittery touch to the subtle nail look.
The lip gloss nails may be simple, but they require some preparation to achieve perfection. Sharing that he’s groomed Lopez’s nails with his Tweezerman Tom Bachik Ultimate Nail Care Set of essential nail care tools, Bachik said, “Preparation is key to a longer-lasting manicure!” Once her nail beds and cuticles looked gorgeous, Bachik wore the Aprés Nails Gel-X Maisie Sculpted Stiletto Tips to make them longer and soften the shape a bit; The tips are meant to mimic your skin tone for those long mannequin hands or your-nails-but-better vibes. After the tips were applied, Bachik mixed up a custom lip gloss-inspired nail shade for Lopez, saying it’s a “semi-sheer high-shine nude that plays off her skin tone.” (If you’re Jennifer Lopez, you can’t just pick any color off the shelf!)
