Jennifer Lopez Just Set the Biggest Nail Trend of Spring and Summer

Jennifer Lopez may be 50, but she continues to be just as much of an influencer as ever, inspiring women half her age. She’s been shaking up the fashion scene for decades. One example of her style savvy is the time she hit the red carpet in her now-iconic Versace dress, a fashion moment that continues to draw attention today.

In more ways than one, Lopez has made it clear that she’s still just as groundbreaking as an artist and trendsetter as ever. Lopez recently demonstrated her legendary style with an Instagram post that showed she continues to be on the leading edge of fashion. People everywhere are excited to copy her fingernail look this spring and summer.

When Lopez wore the famous plunging Versace dress on the red carpet almost 20 years ago, people were amazed. In fact, Google experienced so many searches for pictures of the dress that it led them to develop Google Images. Not many people can say that they wore a dress so well that it changed the internet.

But her relationship with the fashion label didn’t end there. She was recently tapped to be the face of Versace’s new campaign. She closed out their 2019 fashion show by strutting the catwalk in a new version of the dress.

Shortly after her electrifying performance during the Super Bowl halftime show, Lopez posted a picture on Instagram of herself in a white bikini. Her fit, toned body inspired other women to post their own pictures. It became a viral movement, encouraging women of all ages and sizes to love their bodies and prioritize time for self-care. The hashtag #noexcuses came to represent the idea, and Lopez made it clear that she loved the idea. 

She jumped in to express her support for women everywhere. She posted her reaction on Instagram stories, writing, “Keep growing, keep pushing.” To emphasize her approval she doubled down on the encouragement, using uplifting hashtags such as #selflove and #selfcare. 

Her nail look is going to be everywhere soon

Of course, not all trends are quite so meaningful, but they’re still a lot of fun. Lopez recently had an appointment with Tom Bachik, nail artist to the stars, and then took to Instagram to show off the results. Her bright, summery nails in a neon shade of yellow are the perfect look for spring and summer, and fashion leaders predict they’re going to be everywhere soon.

Naturally, Lopez’s nails aren’t the only on-point part about her look. She was also wearing a Versace outfit, complete with a shirt with green sequins in a green leaf pattern, possibly a nod to the Versace dress she made so famous. Her hair was pulled back in a sleek, knotted bun, showing her on-trend balayage highlights. These face-framing highlights are known as “money pieces” and the look is very hot right now. 

Lopez is showing the world that life — and style — don’t start or end at any age. She’s not only hit a new high point in her career, but she’s also engaged to another gorgeous celebrity: Alex Rodriguez. On top of all that, she’s made it clear that she’s still able to win at many current trends, whether that’s the perfect manicure for the season, or nailing a viral Tik Tok challenge.

While most women probably won’t ever look quite as stunning and polished as Lopez does, she inspires women to live their best lives at any point in their lives.
