Celeb Nails: Kelly Clarkson

Celeb Nails: Kelly Clarkson

When Alli showed me Kelly Clarkson’s latest video: Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – we immediately focused in on the nails – at first Alli thought they might be magnetic but then we decided they were silver with black tips. Last night I decided to do my take on Kelly’s nails.

My nails aren’t identical, hers seem to be less uniform and I think the silver is darker – but you get the idea. I used Nailene French Tip Guides that I bought ages ago and have never used.

I decided to use Revlon’s Metallic (Top Speed) which is a great silver – for this picture I used only one coat. It reminds me a lot of Celeb City – I then put on a coat of Seche Vite and after I was sure they were dry, I put on the guides and used Essie’s Licorice – my go to black polish – for the tips.  I will say if you’re going to recreate this look or use nail guides for any reason – make sure your base is dry – my first try wasn’t so successful.

I think this would be a fun manicure for a night out or even New Years Eve 🙂

    This seriously inspired me a while back to do my nails! If I remember correctly, I stayed up and did them instead of cleaning, haha.
    Just in case you wanted to take a peak! Yours look waaaaay better, but, I was in a very genuine loving relationship with mine before they started to chip! c:

      I often choose to do my nails instead of clean! I think your nails look great and I love the rings!
