There are manicures, and then there’s Gigi Hadid’s futuristic Met Gala nail look. Her custom chrome press ons included hidden crystals that cost a cool $2,000. Click for more details!
While everyone else was obsessing over Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik‘s first official red carpet appearance together at the May 2 Met Gala, we were zeroing in on the 21-year-old model’s insane manicure. Playing into the fashion meets technology theme, Gigi went for embellished metallic nails that are worth taking a closer look at.
Paying attention to even the tiniest of details, Gigi’s themed look started with her custom gunmetal Tommy Hilfiger dress that included a silver metallic bodice. Wearing her hair slicked back into a low ponytail. Gigi’s hairstylist, Jennifer Yepez, parted her hair to the side and added silver glitter to her part.
For her makeup, Patrick Ta kept the Maybelline spokesmodel fresh-faced with a soft highlight on her cheekbones, brow bones and down the bridge of her nose, keeping her lips natural and adding a subtle shimmer to her eye makeup.
But as gorgeous as her hair and makeup were, it was Gigi’s nails by manicurist, Mar y Soul, that really stole the show. Mar y created custom chrome nails with KISS Press Ons, making them an elongated almond shape. “Underneath each nail, I added three crystals for an element of surprise to ensure her nails look flawless no matter what angle,” Mary y explained of the look.
While Gigi’s Met Gala nails will set you back $2,000, you can create a similar look at home by painting your nails with Essie No Place Like Chrome Nail Polish, or switching up the color with one of KISS’ Press On Manicure sets. For the embellished details, add three crystals from the KISS Real Crystals collection in a triangle shape on the underside of each nail.
