Blake Lively is never one to go for a low-key look on the red carpet when she can knock 'em dead instead! The actress attended the Mr. Turner premiere last night, May 15, as part of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, and she dazzled on the red carpet in a sequin embellished gown we aren't likely to forget!
Bright like a diamond
The American star wowed onlookers when she walked the Croisette in a dreamy lace gown by Chanel with matching shoes and stunning beach waves cascading over one shoulder. Blake's delicate dress featured paillette detailing and sequins that reflected pastel shades of blue, yellow, pink, and green. A nude manicure completed the L'Oreal Paris ambassadors otherworldly look.
Nude nails are a huge trend at the moment, from the runway to the red carpet. Though simple and classic, they manage to be high-drama in their own way. Blake's nails had an elegant and chic feel to them that was understatedly gorgeous.
How to style nude nails
When opting for a statement look like Blake's, it's important to choose a manicure that compliments the rest of the outfit without overwhelming it! Nude is a great choice in color because it's less harsh than white or black, yet is still a classic neutral that works with just about anything.
If you'd like to add a little shimmer to your nude manicure, feel free to play with different topcoats. For example, a topcoat with pastel micro-shimmer will give you a look similar to Blake's glimmering dress. You could also try bold sparkles or a matte finish. Nude nails might be an old classic, but you can wear them your way!
