Even while filming in black and white, Beyonce’s digits proved to be as fierce and flawless as ever on the set of her sultry new video, “Drunk in Love.” Dying to know how you can rock the same glistening shade? You’re in luck — we tracked down nail pro Lisa Logan for all the details. The secret lies in one of Minx’s heat-activated nail coatings in Gold Lightening — a go-to choice for the singer’s busy lifestyle. “Minx are a fun way to get a unique metallic look with a nice finish that you can’t get from any bottle or gel,” Logan said of the shiny gold decals. Thanks to the brand’s innovative system, Beyonce’s eye-catching toppers lasted well past the shoot without a single smudge or chip in sight.

It was hard not to notice Beyoncé’s solid gold manicure when she asked the 108.4 million viewers of the Super Bowl to “put a ring on it” during her epic halftime performance. And those nails kept shining thanks to some careful planning from her manicurist Lisa Logan. “The process was very time-consuming,” said Logan, who flew to New Orleans a week early to prep the nails with the Gold and Matte Gold Chevrons decal by Minx for Bey and her team of 10 dancers. “All the dancers had to be wearing the same design. Because their nails were so long, I needed to use two Minx templates to cover each tip!” The gold design was used to film the holographic portion of Knowles’s show, and thanks to the long-wear ability, Beyoncé was able to wear the manicure through the week with no touch-ups needed on game day. The same decal Bey wore is available in salons; head to minxnails.com to find a Minx pro near you.
