We’ve seen an influx of celebrities sporting manicures with intricate artwork on their fingertips. Kylie Jenner’s garden-themed nails and Hailey Bieber’s farmer’s market-inspired manicure are just two examples you’ve likely scrolled by (and double-tapped) on Instagram recently. And while we adore these creative designs (keep them coming, nail artists!), classic manicures are undeniably still trending, as evidenced by Zendaya’s recent red-hot nail look.

The nail artist behind Zendaya’s newest manicure is Marina Dobic, who shared an Instagram reel of her client’s nails to her grid. In the clip, the Disney Channel alum hand-models her sophisticated square-shaped nails, slightly longer than her natural nail bed. Dobic shared insight into the process in the caption, writing: “We did gel tips extensions, which I don’t usually do & literally have no practice with but they turned out beautifully. Definitely easier to apply than classic gel extensions and gel tips are soak off which makes the removal process easier & safer.”

Below, get a closer look at Zendaya’s red manicure and discover all the details to consider before requesting a similar style at your next nail appointment.

Zendaya Went With Gel Tip Extensions Instead of Classic Gel Extensions

The standout difference between gel tip extensions and classic gel extensions, beyond their easier removal process, comes down to their streamlined application. Gel tip extensions come pre-formed, sparing your manicurist from the meticulous sculpting and layering required with classic gel extensions. This ultimately speeds up your time at the nail salon, a win-win for everyone involved.

Zendaya Chose a Bright Red Nail Color

Zendaya’s vibrant red gel polish is right on trend. Speaking to NewBeauty about top nail colors for July, Mazz Hanna, CEO of Nailing Hollywood, declared classic reds a great choice. “Red is a classic, bold color that grabs attention,” she said. “It’s perfect for making a statement and making your nails the center of attention. Red embodies the warmth and vibrancy of July’s summer weather.”
