If past examples are any indication, Blake Lively loves unique nails. So much so that in 2021 the actress paid tribute to New York City with tiny manicure art. This week the Gossip Girl alum was back on social media describing her new look as “antique grandma wallpaper”. A style she has been begging for from celebrity nail artist Elle Gerstein. It very well might spark a new trend – move over glazed donuts.
In an Instagram story Lively shared her long almond-shaped nails which featured a muted yellow base and brown hand-drawn flowers. The nails were seemingly finished with a glossy top coat. In the background you can see the wallpaper she was inspired by. Within the frame the 35-year-old tagged luxury interiors brand House of Hackney, writing, “I really hope this is a first.”
Gerstein counts clients including Lindsay Lohan and our favourite Christmas queen, Mariah Carey. Lively’s recent nail art is actually reminiscent to a tortoiseshell print the artist has done for the actress recently. The marble style was finished with a “cinnamon red” that Lively allegedly mixed herself with different coloured polishes.
It’s safe to say that anything Lively does, we’re obsessed with. That includes her signature pregnancy announcement.
The A Simple Favour star is currently expecting her fourth child after she took to the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit red carpet in September to reveal her baby bump. She chose to wear a sparkly gold mini dress with sky high platform heels. Speaking to Forbes in May this year, Lively shared that having children made her “feel so much more in my skin.”
