Jennifer Lopez’s Mocha Manicure Is the Season’s Ultimate Neutral


Never underestimate the power of a dreamy neutral. Whether sumptuous and deep or tawny and featherlight, a well-selected shade can serve as the ultimate accessory. For example, Jennifer Lopez’s mocha manicure—fall’s answer to the milky nails she wore at her wedding—is a polish job that will serve all season, elevating oversized knits and skin-skimming ensembles alike.

JLo’s go-to color was concocted by nail artist Tom Bachik, who mixed CND in Rubble with a touch of Field Fox to create the perfect tone. “I love the whole vibe,” says Bachik. “Rich mocha shades to deep chocolates just bring warmth and sophistication to any manicure.” He adds that the best of fall tones—the type “that make you all warm and fuzzy inside”—are nothing sans a meticulous manicure. “Nothing worse than a great color wasted on un-groomed nails,” he notes. “Focus on proper prep before ever reaching for the polish.”

So head to the salon to better embody the season—this year’s mochas aren’t just sippable, they’re deliciously sartorial.
