Our eyes are almost always drawn to Megan Thee Stallion‘s freshly-manicured tips, which are typically sculpted and filed to perfection by nail artist Coca Michelle. Michelle has created countless one-of-the-kind manis for the Houston rapper, looking to anime, skeletons, and even thermal heat imaging for inspiration. For the Houston rapper’s latest set, Michelle added gilded 3D decals, inspired by Schiaparelli’s opulent accessories, to a pitch-black manicure.
The Hot Girl Captain matched her nails with her Schiaparelli dress to accept a Webby Award for Artist of the Year on May 16. Two days later, she shared pictures of her ensemble in an Instagram carousel. You can spot her nails in most of the photos, but slide three shows them clearly.
Michelle painted each lipstick-shaped nail black as night, then added single tiny gold appliqués, most of which are shaped like body parts, to every finger except the thumbs. To the index fingers, she created a blue eye on top of a blob of gold pigment. The ring fingers were flourished with gilded ears and one of her middle fingers is topped off with an itty-bitty golden nose.
On the other middle finger — one of two that doesn’t have a body part — you’ll find a lock. On one pinky, Michelle affixed a large keyhole slot. On the other, a pair of full lips.
