We have a pretty big #girlcrush on Blake Lively. She constantly nails that effortlessly chic style that is a bit “I just threw this on” with a touch of “I’m straight off of the runway” and a splash of “it’s all in the details”. Blake Lively is known to rock some major nail art complete with gems and so much glam but, for the 2018 VMAs she decided on something a touch more subdued. She went short and natural - but definitely not basic. We’ve got the steps to replicate this white-on-white art-deco nail art.
Inspiration: “Blake took inspiration from her newest film, A Simple Favor, and has been rocking tailored paint-suits day and night! To complement that classic, Hollywood glamour – in this instance, a very 1940’s vibe – we created a chic, white-on-white art-deco nail to match her monochrome look this evening,” said Celebrity Manicurist, Elle.

Step 1: Create a triangle with tape near the cuticle on each finger. Then, apply two coats of essie’s blanc.
Step 2: Let each nail dry. Carefully remove the tape before applying two coats of essie’s pearly white.
Step 3: Finally, apply essie’s speed setter top-coat for a perfect high-shine finish that dries in less than a minute.
