Dua Lipa is leaning into the '70s aesthetic. The "Levitating" singer showed off her latest manicure on Instagram, and the chrome, orange, and red tips by celebrity manicurist Kim Truong instantly brought lava lamps to mind.

This isn't Lipa's first time rocking a retro manicure. Back in December, she shared a few pictures from her vacation in St. Barts (where she also performed at the LuisaViaRoma x UNICEF gala), and we couldn't help but notice the detail on her nails. Lipa stayed true to her signature almond shape but took a nostalgic approach with her manicure design. Using a silver-chrome base color, the star added a textured droplet design to her nails that mimicked the globular shape of the lava inside a lava lamp. The "lava" was painted in a green multichrome that shifts to magenta in different lighting, giving a "Future Nostalgia" spin to the design.

The singer is known for having fun with her nail art — she's tried everything from crystal French tips to animal-print designs. She's also a huge '70s fan, with many of her fashion and beauty choices mimicking styles from the era. While we're not sure if we can look as good as she does in '70s fashion, nails feel like a pretty safe place to start. Take a closer look at both of Lipa's lava-lamp nail designs ahead.
