We love the look of matte-meets-shiny polish and apparently so does Zendaya! The Disney star Instagrammed this pic of her almond talons in a deep-red hue with a matte stripe in the center of the glossy nail and we’re already copying the look at home. You should too!
Try: Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in ‘Deep Cool Red’ and Sephora by O.P.I. Matte Top Coat ($12), available at Sephora stores
If NYE makes you think of fancy things like champagne fountains and caviar dreams, you’re going to need an amped-up mani to compete with those luxuries. Enter: Ciate’s Caviar manicure kit. Mrs. Timberlake paired the white little pearls to match her beaded frock, but the kits also come in black and multi-colored.
Although we wouldn’t call it stalking, we would say we have been known to peruse Zooey’s Instagram feed in the wee hours for amazing nail ideas. Seriously, the girl has such good designs! That TV on her thumb for the Emmys?! This look was her sweetest one yet and you can steal it by painting your tips lemon-yellow and sticking little sparkly bows on top. Voilà! An A-lister mani is yours for the taking.
Try: Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in ‘Fierce n Tangy’ ($3), drugstores and small rhinestone bow ties available for purchase on Amazon.com
Shine bright like a diamond (and Annie) with silver-tipped talons plus a few sparkly accent nails. To get the look, paint silver metallic stripes on the free edge of all your nails. Then, dip a pointed, thin brush into the silver polish and draw a design resembling the Les Mis star’s (but don’t be afraid to make it your own!) on only one side of the ring fingers. Finish with a coat of clear polish on all nails.
