Lately, I’ve been low-key obsessed with Vanessa Hudgens‘s nails. Her lime-colored aura manicure from June made its way into my nail inspiration folder the moment I saw them. About a month later, she traded the neon tips for a holographic set that was just as mood board-worthy. Her latest color-shifting set is even better because it combines at least three nail-art trends into one epic design.
On August 14, nail artist Zola Ganzorigt, who painted Hudgens’s nails, shared a picture of the iridescent set with the caption, “Laser light effect on flames.” Ganzorigt filed and sculpted the Disney Channel alum’s nails into an almond shape. Ganzorigt painted each nail with a glistening shade that shifted from pink to blue to purple underneath the different light settings. She was right to call this a “laser light effect” because I can’t help but think of neon lights every time I look.
On each tip, she drew a French C-curve tip. This holographic base color upgrades the classic manicure, taking it from basic to truly unique. And she made these nails even better with the golden flames she drew atop the French tips.
