There are a few celebs who come to mind when we think of those epic three-inch manicures that are trending right now – Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez (she even added $100 notes to hers) and Kylie Jenner, for starters. 

But Michelle Obama? Not so much.

Well, at a recent event in Denmark to promote her memoir Becoming, Michelle proved that she too is a fan of long acrylic nails, rocking a bright turquoise manicure that would rival the whole of Hollywood put together. 

And we are so here for it.

She’s so damn cool, isn’t she?

And we can totally see why she’s rocking the acrylic look. Not only does it make her entire outfit pop, but when you’re busy travelling with numerous back-to-back events on the cards, the last thing you want to fuss with is your manicure.
