Sure, we love nail art, but when it comes to nail art on Beyonce, whew! It’s a whole different ballgame, friends. Bey’s go-to manicurist Lisa Logan (who has her own line at Minx and is someone you may remember from our prom nail art shoot back in 2011) created some custom tips for Beyonce’s New Year’s Eve performance in Las Vegas, and—OMG—they are uh-mazing. Bey posted a close-up pic of her digits last week, and Lisa says the designs were inspired by the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who is known for his obscure graffiti pieces (and is also a favorite of both Beyonce and Jay-Z). The colorful decals varied by each finger (which we LOVE), and we think it complemented her rhinestone-encrusted black and white bustier and curly locks perfectly.

Unfortunately you can’t swipe up this exact set from Minx since it was custom made for Bey herself, but Lisa Logan suggests making your own DIY Minx set right this second! Head on over to the Minx Tasting Room, where you can hand pick your favorite designs and apply them at home. Or, if you’re feeling incredibly brave, give the ol’ brush and polish a try! I mean, have you seen our post on manicurists recreating famous artwork on their tips? Think: Mini masterpieces from Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, and Andy Warhol. So killer!
