Ciara’s Supermodel Nails at the ESPY Awards Complete Her Look
Ciara showed up to the 2022 ESPY Awards looking like a supermodel from her head to her nails. Although she dazzled in a plunging black velvet gown with a glittering bustier, the singer kept her nails simple with an iteration of one of the hottest red carpet trends: the supermodel manicure. The nail look has been a fan favourite of celebrities like Zendaya and Kourtney Kardashian, but the simplicity of this nail trend makes it adaptable for all types of events and adaptations.
In essence, the supermodel manicure consists of a sheer pink or similarly neutral base coat, highlighted by impeccably clean nail beds. The term was originally coined by Tom Bachik, a celebrity nail artist, who used the phrase to describe Margot Robbie’s nails at the 2021 Academy Awards. Since then, we’ve seen celebs rocking all types of twists on the supermodel manicure, including Sabrina Carpenter’s crystallized version.
Oftentimes with celebrity nails, extravagance and maximalism seems to be the status quo. But as Ciara proved on the red carpet, there is a certain level of sophistication to a simple, clean manicure – especially one accessorized by diamond jewellery. Although Ciara is no stranger to bedazzled nails herself, minimalist nails deserve to have their moment in the spotlight.
