You Have to See Blake Lively’s Stained Glass Mani for the Met Gala 2018 Red Carpet
We can’t stop looking at all the amazingness that was the Met Gala red carpet last night. The dresses, the jewelry, and OMG — the headpieces. One of our faves of the night, Blake Lively, slayed in a custom Versace gown that reportedly took over 600 hours to make! But that wasn’t the only detail about her look that caught our eye.
ICYMI, Lively also rocked custom-made KISS holographic nails — and they are truly divine.
Lively’s manicurist, Elle Gerstein, used five (yes FIVE!) light-capturing chrome colors to create the unique red shade that’s positively holographic. She then added Swarovski crystal accents to the statement nails to complete this incredible royal mani.
Gerstein noted that stained glass windows were the inspo behind the epic nail design. “I wanted to create a regal statement-making nail for Blake, incorporating gothic architecture like you’d see in a church’s traditional stained glass windows,” says Gerstein.
She added, “KISS Products had the design capabilities and the technology to bring my idea to life!” Luckily, us mere mortals can score a similar look using KISS Gel Fantasy Nails ($8).
