During Wednesday night’s American Idol, Jennifer Lopez showed off her softer side with a classy pale-colored crop top from (ASOS Short Sleeve Top in Scuba with Strappy Back, $24) and white Lanvin knee-length skirt, which she paired with black Jimmy Choo pumps. Her soft and sexy curls, and light eye makeup added to her overall ethereal look – but she still gave it that signature dose of sex appeal with a bold, sassy lip. Va-va-voom.

And when it came to her manicure, nail expert Tom Bachik played off the tones in her clothes and hair for inspiration. “Tonight I made a custom soft pink and peach mix,” he tells InStyle.com. “We wanted something soft, translucent, so you could almost see her natural free edge.”
