As we come up on that final leg of summer it’s important to really take advantage of those open-toed shoe options. You are definitely going to be missing them in a few months time. If you’re in need of a pedicure or manicure before you really go strong with your sandal game, we suggest you take a look at Lupita Nyong’o’s Instagram for a little bit of inspiration.
The award-winning actress has been gifting us with all sorts of style inspiration lately. She shared her brilliant hair hack earlier last month and gave us so many outfit ideas while sharing snaps of her vacay in Kenya. This time she’s sharing photos of her latest manicure + pedicure. The actress took photos of both and captioned one, “#pedigram #rideordie summer” and the other, “#TGIF. Feelin’ my #peanuts nail art. conjuring the ocean. #manigram.”
This isn’t the first time Lupita has used the hashtag #manigram. She’s also tagged photos where she’s rocking bright red nails as well as a color that look striking similar to the one she’s currently rocking.
The aqua-inspired color Lupita has an affinity for looks amazing on her, but what’s really catching our eye about her most recent #manigram is that Peanuts-inspired flare nail. If you’re looking to copy Lupita’s look we recommend giving yourself a manicure like normal (or using this cool at-home gel gadget) and then applying a nail decal over it. If you’re also into comic art, order this set or this one (or both!). Either way you’ll definitely be doing both Charlie Brown and Lupita proud.
