Hailee Steinfeld's Teen Choice
There’s a two-part story to the patriotic nail art Hailee Steinfeld sported at the Teen Choice Awards this weekend. To start, the young actress appears to be making matching her nail art to her graphic dresses her signature. Last month, the eyeballs on her long nails mirrored those on her red and white Kenzo dress. This time, the navy blue starbursts on her House of Holland frock made their way onto her ring fingers.
Chanel celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson says Steinfeld was inspired by an anti-bullying campaign she’d recently read about, asking girls to make a pinky swear promise to be kind by sporting blue polish on their pinky fingers. So Johnson painted eight of Steinfeld’s nails with two coats of Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27) in Elixir, coating the actress’ pinkies in the brand’s Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27) in Blue Satin. “On the ring fingers, we replicated the starburst pattern on her dress using a long striping brush,” Johnson says. She finished with a layer of Chanel’s Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer Top Coat ($26) and sprinkled glitter on top of the Blue Satin on Steinfeld's toes for added sparkle.
