Blake Lively at the premiere of her new movie A Simple Flavor in NYC on Monday was looking as stunning as always. Her latest nail art look made clear that she has a keen eye for detail. Ryan Reynolds joined her and co-stars Anna Kendrick and Henry Golding on the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art to celebrate the highly anticipated mystery thriller film, which hits theaters Sept, 14. While you’re marveling at her outfit which is really hard not to focus entirely on Lively’s sharp black suit. You might have missed a thing or two–like if you zoom in on her nail art. You’ll notice a cool detail that pays homage to her character in the film a martini glass accent on her fingernail (It is used as a symbol throughout the film.)
Lively stunned in a sharply tailored black matte Givenchy suit with glitter coattails. But that’s not all. Lively, who has a history of matching her nails to her outfit, added a Swarovski crystal martini glass to her left ring finger/accent nail. Celebrity nail artist Elle created the look by using shimmery black nail polish and Swarovski crystals for the martini’s “glass” and “stem. And you’ll never guess how much the manicure costs.
According to Elle, Lively picked out the color Rock the Mic by LeChat Nails ($7). She chose the color a few weeks prior to the event when she was planning her outfit. The glittery black polish matched her Givenchy pantsuit and shimmering blouse.
Elle painted each nail (with the exception of Lively’s accent nail, her left ring finger) with LeChat Dare to Wear Base Coat ($7) followed by two coats of Rock the Mic and finished off with LeChat Dare to Wear Top Coat ($7).
For the accent nail, Elle started with a base coat. And then applied two coats of LeChat Dare to Wear Black Velvet ($7). She then secured the Swarovski crystals by putting the stones into soaking-wet polish and then letting them dry.
