Anne Hathaway has been getting creative with her nails lately, and we’re obsessed with the blinged-out reverse French manicure she wore to the London premiere of Les Miserables. The star’s digits are a perfect complement to her Givenchy dress, and her manicurist Jenni Draper opted for a budget-friendly trio of lacquers by Mavala, so nailing the look is even easier—they run for just $5 a bottle! Draper added a pewter tip with the brand’s Silver polish over the pinky-nude base in Reno. If you have trouble holding a steady hand, use a strip of tape or a French tip sticker to create a crisp line, but let the neutral polish dry completely before affixing the appliques. Heavy-duty glues can damage the nail bed, so Draper applied a combination of rhinestones with Mavala’s Sparkling Silver glitter lacquer. Do the same by layering on two even coats of the polish, and while it is still wet, press the 3D elements onto the nail. Follow with a generous sweep of clear top coat to lock the crystals into place. Pick up the nail lacquers at beautybay.com to try your hand at the look now!
