Between her high ponytail at Paris Fashion Week and her luxurious vacation photo shoots, Vanessa Hudgens has been killing it beauty-wise over the last month. The High School Musical alum’s newest look includes a flaming hot manicure, which we got a sneak-peek of on March 10 via Instagram. Created by Los Angeles-based celebrity nail artist Zola Ganzorigt, who’s designed looks for stars like Sydney Sweeney, Sabrina Carpenter, and Hailey Bieber, this mani is fire. Her nails are a medium-long length with a silver base, with pink and black flames cascading from her tips. The nails — which could be natural or acrylic — complement her bold but simple glam by makeup artist Allan Avendaño.
Though Hudgens is wearing minimal eye shadow, this makeup look is all about the eyeliner. Her inky liner begins in the inner corner of her eyes and extends outward to form a baby wing. She has a bit of a pink gloss on her lips, and her thick brows are brushed out and filled in. To polish things off, she’s wearing blush and highlighter which only accentuate her already-gorgeous bone structure.
Her hair, styled by Chad Wood, consisted of shoulder-length beach waves and a right side part. The entire look came together for Expo West in Anaheim, where she promoted her cactus water company, Cali Water, later that day. But above all, we love how intricate this nail look is, and can’t help but wonder if she’s purposefully juxtaposing (cactus) water and fire. Regardless, she understood the assignment with these nails.
It’s been a big year for Hudgens so far, and we can’t wait to see what looks she surprises us with next.
