We look at the nail polish choices of Hollywood A-lister Lupita Nyong’o
Actress and Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o wows with her amazing dress sense on the red carpet, but Lupita also adds colour with her choice of nail varnish. ‘A nail is a great place to have a bright colour and add dynamism to your look,’ says Lupita. ‘Right now I’m wearing Lancôme’s Blue Marine Chic (out of stock). A soft pink nude polish is good too. It’s also very important for me to give my nails a break from polish every couple of days. I have very strong nails, but they need the sun.’
Take a tip from Lupita’s book, for her Oscar winning performance in which she stunned in a powder blue Prada dress, she wore Deborah Lippmann’s Spring Reveries Nail Color in La Vie En Rose (£16) a soft, slightly shimmering pink, that suits all skin tones.
As a Lancôme spokesperson, Lupita is often pictured wearing the brand’s nail colours. She shared a #manigram of Lancôme’s electric red high-gloss nail polish in Lovered (out of stock). You can try Nailberry’s Rouge (£14.50). Hot reds looks particularly vibrant on darker skin tones.
We’ve said it before, you don’t ever need a reason to liven up your nail polish palette — and Lupita agrees. Channel her many-hues-go vibe and let your wild side out with your nail colour.
