Forget Mediocre Fashion

Men’s Manicures Were a Major Met Gala 2022 Beauty Trend

Men’s manicures have been trending for awhile now (Harry Styles notably sported black and turquoise polish at 2019’s “Notes on Camp” gala), however the 2022 Fulfilled Gala just cemented nail artwork as a source of spirited self-expression not certain by gender. 

In a beauty era that encourages experimentation and pleasurable, men’s manicures were suitable at house amid the evening’s colourful make-up appears, glowing equipment, and mesmerizing fashion. There was Shawn Mendes’s deep blue manicure, perfected by superstar nail artist Betina Goldstein. “We required to take inspiration from Shawn’s Tommy Hilfiger glimpse and introduced that out in his nails, which resulted in a matte navy-blue appear with an legendary function nail and gold clusters for an added pop,” Goldstein describes. In the meantime, Evan Mock—whose penchant for nail coloration is nicely-established—set off his pink hair and gentle suit with a typical dim nail. Anderson .Paak and Joe Jonas both equally sported mismatched nails with various designs on every single finger, Jonas’s with on-concept gilded accents by nail artist Julie Kandelec. Then, in a blink-and-you-skipped-it second, Ben Platt rocked a pinkish nude mani with extensions.
