Issa Rae is finally entering the world of nail art. The star’s manicurist Eri Ishizu posted a picture of her nails on her Instagram Stories and the design is both elegant and trendy, which sounds like Rae in a nutshell.
The manicure starts with a neutral base colour, but instead of the quintessential french manicure design at the tip, she decided to do a “side tip” in a striking neon green colour. To take the design even further, a gold chrome swirl was added below the side tips, incorporating yet another trend to the stunning manicure.
Rae has typically kept her nail looks simple, opting for single-colour manicures in reflective chromes, deep burgundies, and neutral beiges, so her choice to not only try such a bold colour but pair it with some nail art is a big deal. This manicure certainly fits in with the dopamine nail trend where the wearer chooses colours and designs that bring a rush of joy – like a hit of dopamine – when they look at their nails.
Here’s to hoping Rae will continue to provide trendy nail inspiration for our mood boards with her future manis. Take a closer look at Rae’s nails below.
