Lizzo's New Rose-Quartz Nail Art Is Scarily Realistic
When it comes to hair, makeup, nails — the whole nine yards — Lizzo and her glam squad never fail to impress us. So when she showed off her latest nail set via her Instagram stories on Wednesday, September 1, we knew we had to share them with y'all.
This rose quartz-themed set was designed by nail artist Eri Ishizu, who's worked her artistic prowess on the singer-songwriters' nails on multiple occasions. Ishizu posted a photo of the stiletto-shaped manicure to her Instagram grid — the exact photo that Lizzo reposted to her Instagram stories shortly after. In the photo, Lizzo appears to be holding some rose quartz in her hands, demonstrating how scarily similar her nails are to the stone's exquisite color.
"Just the designs take about one hour for me," Ishizu tells Allure about this look. She began the process by applying gel extensions, followed by a "base coat and cure." Once the gels were secure, she applied two coats of “sheer pink” polish, specifically Marshmallow by The GelBottle. To mimic the stone's white accents, she painted "three to four skinny, wavy [white] lines" in no particular direction with The GelBottle's Daisy polish. “"Use [a] bigger brush [to] blur the white, but not too much," Ishizu adds. A clear gel topcoat helps blend it all together even more.
As expected, many of Ishizu's (and Lizzo's) fans expressed their love for the new nails in the comments section. Lizzo subtly revealed the manicure in an Instagram post a few days before Eshizu did, and we're a little shocked it took us this long to give it a fully dedicated post.
