Lily Allen is bringing back glitter nails with her bridal mani

And we are so here for it

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / September 11 2020

In case you missed it, this week Lily Allen married long-time boyfriend and Stranger Things actor, David Harbour, at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. The lovebirds were giving off serious main character energy, celebrating the low-key quirky affair with an Elvis impersonator in tow and an In-N-Out burger run – we love.

And while Lily was looking gorgeous in vintage Chanel, our eyes were permanently planted on her nails. The popstar employed the help of celeb nail artist, Naomi Yasuda, who created a bold 3D glitter bridal mani with a romance theme that has left us yearning for glittery press on nails and polish:

The great thing about glitter nails is they’re actually pretty easy to recreate at home – even if you don’t have Yasuda-level nail art skills. Let us show you how…

First things first, there is no simpler way to completely rip off a professional nail look (with little to no effort) than by whacking on a set of press-on nails – much like this holographic glitter set from Ardell. Plus, if you’re feeling creative and want to pull off that 3D nail vibe, it's easy to customise using your own with decorative details. 

Love the look but not the practicality? Go for a glitter polish (or two) instead. While they can be a bit of a bugger to remove, the beauty of glitter nail polishes is application doesn’t have to be precise. You can touch-up on the go because you don’t need it to be perfect to get stunning results, whether you opt for fine glitter or chunky the statement is in that glitz and shine. We love this chunky pink holographic glitter polish from Smith & Cult and this fine silver glitter pigment polish from Butter London.

3D nail art is having a bit of a moment right now. Here’s how to recreate the trendy 'seashell nails' you’ve been seeing all over Instagram.

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
