Jennifer Lopez’s chai latte manicure is winning NYFW

September means one thing – Fashion Week. From New York and London to Paris and Milan, the four major fashion capitals are preparing to showcase the latest trends, and with New York’s already well underway, we’re getting our first look at what’s going to be trending in the coming months.

It’s not just the clothes that are giving us some style inspo, though; the beauty looks are coming in thick and fast, and alongside the models, celebs are also giving us some major looks.

An often overlooked detail, we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for the newest manicure trends, and our current favourite nail look comes from none other thanJennifer Lopez.

Yep, we’re officially declaring JLo’s chai latte manicure the winner of NYFW thanks to its perfect autumnal colour, which is a universally flattering and versatile shade and the perfect accompaniment to the summer’s latte makeup trend.

Her new mani was courtesy of celebrity manicuristTom Bachik, who shared a look at the singer’s nails on his Instagram over the weekend.

To create the perfect chai-inspired tone, Tom mixed his own colour, saying: “For this look, I created a taupe-y lavender color by mixing a few drops of@apresnailofficialSebastian’s Spots into their Chai Latte Gel Couleur to bump up the tone for a perfect match to her eyeshadow.”

The finished result is a beautiful light beige-infused mauve colour that looks great on pretty much any skin tone and is similar to the milk manicure trend that’s been popular over the last few months.

Unfortunately for nail art fans, the exact Aprés Nail Varnish colours aren’t available in the UK (*sob*) but we have found some pretty perfect alternatives to recreate the look yourself at home.

Beauty Pie’s Wondercolour Nail Polish in shade Supernude, £7 here (was £20), has the perfect shade of beige-toned mauve to replicate JLo’s manicure, not to mention it currently has £13 off in the Beauty Pie sale.

You could also combine both Nails Inc’s 45 Second Speedy Gloss, £8 here, and Essie Nail Polish 101 Lady Like, £7.19 here (was £8.99), for a similar combination of shades to Tom’s custom colour.

With such a light colour, you’re going to want to paint two or three light coats to make the colour completely opaque and solid, and don’t forget to add a clear top coat to help prevent chipping or breaking.

Fashion Week has only just begun and we’re sure there’s going to be plenty more trending looks making their way onto our inspo boards very soon!
