Britney Spears' French Manicure On The Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Is Giving Us Early 2000s Flashbacks

Well, Britney Spears' Billboard Music Awards look is bringing back the early '00s nostalgia this year: not just merely with her existence, but with her nail art. That's right: Britney Spears sported a hot pink french manicure at the Billboard Music Awards and seventh grade you is feeling so vindicated about your life and your choices. I'm actually fairly confident that one of my favorite looks from the time was a pleather snakeskin skirt and a pink Britney tank top with this exact mani.

Remember when all it took to feel on trend was a swipe of glittery eyeshadow, a spray of Juice Bar's Gummi Bear or Cotton Candy body spray, and a hot pink french mani? Same. Remember when having cute nail are was as easy as using those little adhesive strips? Me too. Perhaps a nod to collaborator Iggy Azealia's dip-dyed pink hair or perhaps a nod to the beginning of her career, all I care about is that this manicure is potentially being the sign of a return of the colored french mani. Not because I particularly love french manis or anything, but because I think we all deserve a world where you can de-stress by listening to "Stronger" and giving yourself a hot pink mani with a little Juice bar body spray.
