Show stopping nail looks from the Grammys Red Carpet

Rapper Lizzo sported the most striking nail look, both in terms of design and colour, at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles on 5 February.

Regarded as music’s biggest event, the Grammys recognise the best recordings, compositions and artists of the year.

Celebrity stylist Eri Ishizu was responsible for creating Lizzo’s bright orange, 3D floral design. On her Instagram page (@eriishizu), she wrote: “For Lizzo’s Grammy look, we decided to have a monochromatic vibrant look that evokes a spring awakening. Spring is a time of change, reinvention and colour, and with this bright, bold and beautiful outfit, I wanted to create statement nails. I used the shade Silicon Valley Girl from OPI’s new Me, Myself and OPI collection to inspire the same feelings, similar to her dress. We matched the florals on the dress to create springtime 3D nails.”

Ishizu moulded the 3D flowers with acrylic onto the nails and added some crystal.
