Blake Lively's "Wallpaper" Nails Are Surprisingly on Trend
The idea for Blake Lively's latest manicure came from a very unlikely place. On Nov. 17, the actor attended the American Cinematheque Awards with nails inspired by her Ralph Lauren dress . . . or her wallpaper.
The look, which was created by her go-to manicurist Elle Gerstein, featured floral nail art in warm hues that feel particularly well-timed given that the holidays are fast approaching. Starting with a soft oval shape, Gerstein used a yellow base color to set the stage for the rest of the manicure. She then created the flowers with various shades of reds, greens, and pinks for a look that felt straight out of the '70s.
"#nailinspo💅 for @blakelively was this gorg @ralphlauren dress or was it a coincidence that it matched her @houseofhackney wallpaper," wrote Gerstein in an Instagram caption showing off her work. "I'm grateful for Blake's visions and taste for mixing colors until they are JUST RIGHT. Her love of texture is truly divine!"
"Wallpaper" nails were a breakout trend from New York Fashion Week this year but have only recently begun to pick up steam in Hollywood. The trend typically takes inspiration from retro wallpaper prints for a manicure that's both nostalgic yet still fresh. Take a closer look at Lively's wallpaper nails ahead.
