Rihanna’s Red Nails — Get The Look With Essie
We understand that while Rihanna’s manicure may look fairly simple, it can also be pretty intimidating. After all, a glossy red manicure is kind of the Holy Grail of the nail polish world. But have no fear dear readers, were here to help you every step of the way!
To get a nail color like Rihanna rocked on July 15, we suggest using Essie Nail Polish in Russian Red. This classic color is the perfect bright, warm red cream to match Rihanna’s manicure.
The first step to achieving this look is groomed nails, so break out the nail clipper and file and start shaping until your nails are the exact way you want them. Next, you’ll need to use a base coat to protect your nails from being stained by the red polish — try Essie Nail Care Ridge Filling Base Coat to ensure a smooth polish application.
Next, apply two coats of Russian Red. Then — and this is key — make sure to use a top coat to seal the polish. We suggest Essie No Chips Ahead Anti-Chip + Shine Topcoat. We love this topcoat because it protects our manicure from chipping and also gives us megawatt shine like Rihanna.
Rihanna mixed up this classic look with some funky, modern jewelry — do the same! And tell us if you love Rihanna’s red manicure below, HollywoodLifers!
