It was all about metallic for Jennifer Lopez on last night’s American Idol. The singer dazzled in a bronze-hued Lanvin top, Vivienne Westwood burgundy bubble hem skirt, matching Brian Atwood heels, and edgy gold Jennifer Fisher jewelry.
Lopez went with a shiny lip and dark-rimmed eyes to complement her ensemble, and opted for slicked-back simple waves when it came to her hair. The judge’s nails also stuck to the metallic theme, and were done in a shimmery combination of colors.
“I liked the way the material of the top and skirt picked up the light and shimmered, and decided to make a similar color on Jen’s nails,” nail expert Tom Bachik tells InStyle.com exclusively. “I wanted to create depth and dimension so I started by painting her nails black and then put a mix of glitters on top. I used two golds and a bronze to create that dimension among the tricolor. Finally, we cleaned off on the edges so there was a black edge all around.”
