You’ve probably matched your manicure to the season, the nearest holiday, or even your zodiac sign, but celebrities are taking it a step further. As of late, the hottest nail trend is to match your nails to your jewelry. It’s over-the-top and a bit high maintenance, but that’s exactly the type of energy we want to carry with us into spring.
Selena Gomez, Blake Lively, and Jodie Turner-Smith are among the celebrities who’ve jumped on board the matching-jewelry nail-art trend. At the SAG Awards in February, Gomez wore green nail polish by celebrity manicurist Tom Bachick that perfectly mirrored the sparkly emerald ring on her middle finger. Then, in early March for the premiere of “The Adam Project,” Lively’s mini-moon nail art by manicurist Elle Gerstein featured shades of baby pink and soft brown, which complemented not only the pink diamond and gemstone bracelet she was wearing but also her dress. Most recently, for the Critics’ Choice Awards, Turner-Smith, with the help of manicurist Natalie Minerva, wore a stunning emerald and diamond manicure on a neutral nail-polish base. The embellishments on her nails matched the gems on her rings, bracelet, and tiara, creating quite the statement look.
We have a feeling this is only the beginning of the matching-jewelry manicures. With the Oscars and Grammys coming up fast, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more examples of this ultraglam trend. In the meantime, see examples of how stars are matching their nail art to their jewelry ahead.
