People just can’t stop talking about Beyonce performing at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show this Sunday. I mean, we have SO many questions: Will she reunite with Destiny’s Child? Will she bust out some killer dance moves? And, most importantly, will she wear stripes? We’ve still got a few days to find out the answers to all our burning questions, but Bey did address that whole lip-syncing debacle today! Earlier at the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show press conference in New Orleans, she totally confronted her haters by belting out The Star-Spangled Banner a cappella in a beige, long-sleeve mini dress with an open back and sheer lace pumps. AND SHE KILLED IT. *high-fives entire world* But, um, can we be honest for a sec? While we certainly give her major props for nailing the performance, we couldn’t help but get a WEE bit distracted by the seriously on-point nail game she was sporting. It’s just. So. Shiny.

Beyonce wore zigzag gold tips that we just couldn’t stop staring at! We love how it’s both glamorous and badass at the same time (which is… basically Beyonce in a nutshell). You can achieve this effect on your own by painting a coat of super-shiny gold polish (like Essie’s Good as Gold, $8) and then using a matte top coat (like Deborah Lippmann’s Flat Top, $18) to do the zigzag design on top. And voilà! You’re one step closer to becoming Bey! Well, sorta. Tell us—are you going to give this gold mani a try? Let us know in the comments below!
