Maria Menounos’s nails looked “extra” special yesterday at the announcement of her partnership with Marshall’s in New York City—she’s the retailer’s new Style Ambassador—and we got the inside scoop on her metallic manicure. Turns out, they were a spur-of-the-moment decision. “I realized I had no time to get my nails done, so I went into CVS and I bought Essie’s nail stickers,” the host told us of her funky fingers, which we snapped for InStyle’s Instagram. “I did them on the plane in five minutes. I was so blown away about how cool they looked that I called all the flight attendants to my seat and showed them how to do it! It’s so easy.” Menounos chose Essie’s Sleek Stickers in Sneek-E, one of 12 designs available from the nail brand. Get yours for $10.25 at zappos.com.
