Dua Lipa is the queen of cool. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter frequently blesses our Instagram feed with mirror selfies that could double as fashion editorials. Her latest look worth obsessing over? The chart-topper’s most recent selfie, posted on Wednesday, November 11. She dons a white Alexander Wang dress in the pic, which she teamed with mismatched earrings and crystal-embellished nails.
The “Future Nostalgia” singer’s full look was the work of makeup artist Samantha Lau, hairstylist Anna Cofone, and manicurist Michelle Humphrey. We’re particularly enamored because it’s evident that so many details went into making it extra epic — including (but not limited to) those nails — which we’re looking to copy sooner rather than later.
If the crystal-embellished manicure looks familiar, that’s because you’ve probably seen them on Lipa’s Instagram page before. Humphrey posted a photo of the London native’s sparkly talons on November 1, days before her virtual appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. For the interview, the hitmaker stunned in an oversized hot pink shirt from the Valentino Spring 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, Balenciaga booties, retro-inspired earrings, and a gold chain necklace.
According to the celebrity nail artist’s Instagram feed, she brought the nail look to life using silver Bio Sculpture Gel Nail Polish and what appears to be hundreds of crystals from Swarovski for Professionals.
Humphrey has aptly named the manicure “Disco nails,” which couldn’t be more on point. The design is a pumped-up version of the minimalist rhinestone nail trend we’ve been seeing on social media in recent years by nail artists like Betina Goldstein and Mei Kawajiri.
Most of us don’t have access to a celebrity manicurist — or a manicurist at all, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That said, keep scrolling to shop our favorite crystal-embellished press-ons to get a similar look at home in minutes.
