Ayo Edebiri Put 3D Iridescent Rainbow Teardrop Nail Art on Short, Natural Nails — See the Photos

Must read

Ayo Edebiri is lending her vocal talents to the new Inside Out 2, playing the role of Envy in the Pixar film, and I’m feeling very envious of her premiere manicure.

Edebiri walked the red carpet wearing a manicure that incorporated several eye-catching nail art elements, like iridescent rainbow colors that shifted as they caught the light and 3D teardrops applied to the center or tip of each nail. Manicurist Eri Ishizu wanted to create “fun 3D airy nails” for the star and used Aprés Nail products to create the look on Edebiri’s natural short nails. Ishizu started by swirling together the shades Morning Sighs, In the Navy, and Royal Stamp with a clear base for a marbled effect, then applied a gel topcoat. After the nails cured, Ishizu applied an iridescent powder and molded the 3D droplets with the brand’s Non-Wipe Glossy Top Gelcoat.

The final result was the kind of manicure you want to stare at for hours to absorb every tiny detail, but it also felt soft thanks to the delicate pale indigo, pink, and golden tones, short nails, and subtle gleam from the shimmering, iridescent powder. As Ishizu shared, the overall vibe is definitely fun and airy, perfect for the summer weather. A green manicure would have been expected, given Edebiri’s character, but this is fresh, surprising, and chic. What’s that you’re feeling? Could it be … envy?
