If you’re tuned in to Vanessa Hudgens Wedding Watch 2023, you’re already well aware that the actor, singer, and entrepreneur had a fabulous bachelorette party in Aspen, Colorado, in late October with half a dozen of her closest friends. And while she posted plenty of photos from the event, one thing was conspicuously missing from her Instagram carousels: a closeup of her manicure. But thankfully, it’s still going strong, and we could finally get a good look at it during a morning show appearance.
Hudgens was interviewed by Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on the Today set on Thursday, November 2, and Kotb understandably couldn’t help but point out her fabulous wedding-themed nails. “Well, you have a beautiful manicure we can’t take our eyes off of,” Kotb said, noting that it’s not a Halloween-inspired manicure. Although Hudgens is known for being one of Halloween’s biggest fans, she actually wore these nuptial nails with her wicked witch costume — but once again denied us a good look at them.
Thankfully, Hudgens talked with her hands quite a bit while on Today, giving viewers a good glimpse at the design. The long, almond-shaped nails featured an ombré French base, with a gradient transition from white to pinkish-beige. On top of that foundation were delicately painted gothic letters in black — one per nail — spelling out “BRIDE” on her right hand and “MRS. T” on her left. The only finger that didn’t have a letter was her left ring finger, appropriately, which had a gem to serve as the period.
Hudgens’s go-to nail artist Zola Ganzorigt was kind enough to share a clear close-up video of the amazing manicure, which will surely inspire other bachelorette and bridal nail looks.
In pointing out the “MRS. T” part of the manicure to the hosts, the bride-to-be said that while she’ll keep the last name Hudgens professionally, she’s planning to take her baseball player fiancé Cole Tucker’s last name legally.
And speaking of Cole Tucker’s name, we’re not saying she should do this, but if she wanted, she could spell out “COLE TUCKER” across her nails for the wedding. Just an idea.
