To all the goths who may be reading this, step right up and check out Demi Lovato‘s new nail art. The singer’s go-to nail artist, Natalie Minerva, shared a photo of Lovato’s new nails in an Instagram post on March 15.
In the photo, Lovato is shown resting one of their newly manicured hands on top of their head. Each of the stiletto-shaped nails is painted in the color that goths arguably love the most: black. And two of them appear to be decorated with some teeny tiny jeweled accents — think Euphoria style.
If you weren’t aware, Minerva is actually the nail artist behind all of the show’s season two manicures. Tiny jewels similar to the ones on Lovato’s tips were a nail art staple in Euphoria‘s second run. Maddy’s and Cassie’s nails always seemed to have been adorned with these dazzling, minuscule details.
All things Euphoria aside, Lovato’s black nails are ones many of us can get behind for a few reasons. First of all, they’re only painted in black, which means that no advanced nail art skills are required — that is, if you decide to recreate this look at home. For a polish similar to Lovato’s, try Mischo Beauty’s Nail Lacquer in Run the World. This rich shade of black recently picked up a 2021 Best of Beauty Award. Prior to painting, make sure to reach for a nail filer, like Revlon’s Shape ‘N’ Buff File and Buffer, to recreate the nails’ stiletto-shaped tips. However, getting that stiletto shape down is not easy as it appears, so it will take a bit of practice until you attain the shape’s signature pointed tip.
Mirrored manicures, pretty pastels, and nails painted with visions of the cosmos may be all the nail art rage these days, but we’re glad to see that space is being made for all the goths out there, too. Thanks, Demi and Natalie!
