Lupita Nyong’o nailed it this award season. Her red carpet looks left us in awe. We gushed over her radiance and infectious smile. Like many, we fell in love with the Kenyan actress, who just picked up her first Oscar Award Sunday night. She has inspired us beyond belief. We also love the “!2 Years a Slave” star because she’s just like us. Lupita loves her manicures. She literally created a nail diary through Instagram, chronicling her fabulous manis. She would typically leave the comment,”Manicure Sneak Peek.” and add #LupitaLovesLacquer hash tag. She’s so cool,right?
We loved every polish choice and this style star only went with the best. Her nail box is filled with Chanel , Tom Ford and Deborah Lippmann nail polish. Check out a few of our favorite mani’s from the starlet this award season.
On Oscar night, Lupita went with Deborah Lippmann’s “La Vie en Rose” nail polish.
While giving that moving speech at the ESSENCE’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon Lupita, shined like her gold manicure created by Nettie Davis.
She also rocked a gold manicure to the SAG Awards. Her manicurist brought this look to life with layer of “Swagga Like Us,” a coat of “Chain Reaction,” and a shade from the “Rock This Town” trio. All the colors are from Deborah Lippmann.
For the NAACP Image Awards lit the red carpet up with an orange manicure.
For the DuJour Media party Lupita chose another bold color from Deborah Lippmann. She’s wearing “Laughin’ To The Bank.”
The beauty brand’s “Private Dancer” also looked great on Lupita. What a pretty purple?
The dark hues continued when she hit the red carpet for the “Non Stop” movie premiere.
She kept things light with Deborah Lippmann’s “No More Drama” nude polish at the Producers Guild Awards.
At the BAFTA Film Awards nominee party Lupita rocked Deborah Lippmann’s “Pink Orchid” Polish to match her Chanel suit.
To compliment her gorgeous green Dior gown at the BAFTA Film Awards, Lupita added a bright red nail and lip.
There was also Deborah Lippmann’s “Blue Orchid” polish for the Golden Globes. That red caped gown was GORGEOUS.
One of my favorite designs was Lupita’s Ombre Nial at the 5th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party. GORG!
The best part about all of this, Lupita is like some of us. She likes to paint her own nails. She used “VaVaVoom” also by Deborah Lippmann for this creation. You gotta love this girl.
If you loved her manicures recreate it with some of the exact polishes Lupita used this award season.
