Hailee Steinfeld’s Teen Choice Awards Starburst Nail Art

Hailee Steinfeld's Teen Choice Awards Starbust Nail Art

During Comic-Con, Hailee Steinfeld’s nail art managed to even upstage her all-eyes-on-you Kenzo dress, and she was at it again for the Teen Choice Awards.

At first glance it would appear that the nail art was merely replicating the colour and starburst print on her House of Holland dress, but there is more to it than first meets the eye: Hailee was sending out an important message.

The teen had seen an anti-bullying campaign in a magazine where young girls were asked to make a “pinky swear” promise to be kind by wearing blue polish on their pinky fingers, so that’s exactly what she did.

Chanel celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson created the look, starting off with two coats of Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Elixir before coating the actress’s pinkies with Chanel’s Le Vernis Nail Colour in Blue Satin.

The blue was also used to replicate the starburst pattern seen on her frock on the ring fingers, with a layer of Chanel’s Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer Top Coat and a sprinkle of glitter for added shine completing the look.
