Beyoncé is a perennial beauty icon, so perhaps it should be no surprise that her latest manicure is set to start a new trend. The singer posted several Instagram snaps of her and husband Jay Z, with Beyoncé opting for a sparkling silver logo blazer from Balenciaga‘s Hacker Project collection.
To match her high shine look, the star chose to reinvent the classic French manicure with silver polish. With thick metallic strips painted in place of the traditional white tips, the base of the nail was kept nude, but with some intricate detailing added.
On each nail was a different, delicately painted shape, from a triangle to a square and some neatly lined dots. It provides a simple way to experiment with metallics and nail art, without straying too far into kitchy territory.
While things have been relatively quiet from camp Beyoncé over the last few months, she appeared to indicate in a recent rare interview that she might just parlay her considerable influence in the beauty and wellness space into a business – although she didn’t reveal quite what that could look like.
“I discovered CBD on my last tour, and I’ve experienced its benefits for soreness and inflammation,” she said. “I found healing properties in honey that benefit me and my children. One of my most satisfying moments as a mom is when I found [daughter] Blue one day soaking in the bath with her eyes closed, using blends I created and taking time for herself to decompress and be at peace.”
While that might seem vague, Beyoncé did add, “I have so much to share…and there’s more to come soon!”
A wellness business from Queen Bey, perhaps? We can’t wait.
