In the era of Instagram, a new mani becomes an opportunity to make a social media statement, particularly when it鈥檚 on trend (those sweater nails, though!). But Jennifer Lopez鈥檚 nail guru says there鈥檚 one major nail trend you can nix from your feeds, since it鈥檚 definitely on the way out in 2018.

Manicurist to the stars Tom Bachik, whose client list includes Lopez, Heidi Klum, and Selena Gomez, says that almond nails (AKA J.Lo鈥檚 signature nail style!) is *so* over. In an interview with Us Weekly, the singer鈥檚 go-to nail artist reveals that our fingertips (and our Insta feeds) are about to go back to basics, with his A-list ladies ditching their long, claw nails in favor of a more toned-down shape.

鈥淭his year is going to be a little more minimalistic鈥 鈥渉e explains. 鈥淗eidi鈥檚 gone shorter with her nails and even J.Lo鈥檚 taken away her almond to a much shorter, softer nail. Everything鈥檚 just really classic,鈥 he explains.

The same goes for color, with the nail guru adding that 鈥渞eally clean looking nails鈥 are in, particularly in nudes, reds, and dark hues.

In addition to giving off a timeless look, the shorter styles are also more efficient, making texting and emailing a breeze鈥 though it doesn鈥檛 always work to Bachik鈥檚 advantage. 鈥淚t鈥檚 more of a hassle for me now that they have short nails because I鈥檓 like, 鈥楪ive me your hand!鈥 and they鈥檙e like, 鈥楬old on, hold on!鈥

If you鈥檙e into bold, eye-catching nail art, however, never fear: Bachik says it鈥檚 still on the map, just in a different way. 鈥淪ometimes I get asked, 鈥業s nail art dead?鈥 because we don鈥檛 see it as much, but it鈥檚 not dead, it鈥檚 just becoming more simple.鈥

Go ahead and pour one out for the talon nails of yore: Coffin nails, we hardly knew ye!
