At-home manis and pedis have become all the rage for many of the women (and men) opting to stay at home during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But for some of the more adventurous beauty addicts and fashionistas out there, nail art is also a welcome trend. A creative way to paint, decorate, enhance and embellish the nails, nail art is also a way to turn your fingers and toes into works of art. Many celebrities have been wearing spectacular nail art designs and we can do the same.
While working on nail art designs at home is not as easy as your everyday manicure/pedicure, there are plenty of nail art sets, nail art supplies, decoration kits and YouTube tutorials to get you going.
For more inspiration, these 6 celebs have recently shown off their eye-catching nail art, done by some of the top celebrity nail artists in the country. Take a look at the nail art on Rosalia, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, Cardi B, Khloe Kardashian and Dua Lipa.
Spectacular Celebrity Nail Art Design
Flamenco fusion singer Rosalia has become the queen of overexaggerated nails – often showcasing veritable nail sculptures on her fingers. She was also one of the first to sport these overdone works of art on her fingers as long point fake nails with intricate designs which became the next big thing. While over-the-top nails have always had a long history, they were on the back burner until Rosalia came along. With artists like Dvine Nails and Juan Alvear responsible for some of her boldest looks (Alvear was behind the incredible “twisting talons” from her Aute Cuture Video), Rosalia’s incredible nail art has become part of her signature look and she will continue to flaunt them for future flamenco dance numbers.
JLo is a triple threat (dancer, actor, singer) and so it comes as no surprise to anyone that this beauty icon also succeeds in flaunting incredible nail art. This is just another glamorous project she can sink her claws into.
On New Year’s Eve, the Hustlers actress displayed some intricate nails created by Tom Bachik, the actress’s go-to nail artist. The nails were adorned with piercings and Versace-inspired artwork.
Lizzo Nail Art
Celebrity manicurist Eri Ishizu is said to be behind rapper Lizzo‘s most memorable nail art designs.
The body positive entertainer has worn many of the year’s biggest trends on her nails on the red carpet, including tonal studs and neon colors. Last year, at the American Music Awards, her crystal manicure stole the show and played off well against her orange-hued dress. Behind the look? Her celebrity nail artist Ishizu, of course.
Cardi B likes to get noticed and she always lets her nails and clothes do the talking. Besides attracting attention, many of those clothes and nails have a message on them that she wants to convey. In July, her daughter’s birthday month, Cardi B got a sky blue manicure emblazoned with her daughter’s name and studded with rhinestones. The London-based nail artist Reecey Roo was behind the glamorous look.
It wasn’t Cardi B’s first time getting her nails done in such an attention-grabbing way, and it certainly won’t be the last. One of her other captivating looks was the time she revealed a Pepsi-style manicure for her new campaign with the brand. For the look, Cardi B called on celeb manicurist Jenny Bui, who also added more than 500 Swarovski crystals.
In recent years, the levelheaded Kardashian has become one of the most glamorous ones in the family. Having the right outfit, making sure your hair is perfectly coiffed, and boasting a few stunning manicures certainly helps. Last summer, Khloe Kardashian put a “2019 spin on a 90s trend” with neon green French tips. Khloe’s nails were done up by nail artist Chaun. P. Legend, who has created nail art for her in the past as well as nail connoisseurs like Cardi B and Khloe’s sister Kylie Jenner.
At the Burberry show at New York Fashion Week, Dua Lipa sported gorgeous nails in a colorful plaid print. The manicurist Mei Kawajiri set her up with this look. Never one to shy away from striking nail looks, Dua Lipa has worn a few spectacular ones in the past, including a checkered one at the Grammy Awards in February. There were also rainbow-hued ones by nail artist Michelle Humphrey featuring multicolor flames in colors like pink, blue, purple and yellow. Not too shabby for the glamorous star.
