Brits 23

Saturday (11/02/23) saw the 43rd BRIT Awards take place in London’s O2 Arena, with big names in the music business coming together to celebrate UK music talent.

On the red carpet, celebrities showcased striking outfits – with show-stopping nail shades and art to suit.

Check out our pick of nail styles from the event…

Harry Styles

Winner of the most awards, Harry Styles, enlisted the help of Jenny Longworth for his BRITs nail look. The nail stylist created a glossy, pale lavender design, which stood out against the singer’s dark fashion choices, as he accepted each of the four BRIT Awards he was nominated for.

Lizzo’s go-to nail tech, Eri Ishizu, was on hand to deliver a pink-toned French manicure for the US musician. The nail artist used Essie Gel Couture nail polish shades, revealing on Instagram that she applied one coat of Last Nightie, two coats of Bodice Goddess, before creating the French tips with two coats of Matter of Fiction and the ombré on the tips using Bodice Goddess. To finish, Essie Gel Couture Top Coat was applied.

Shania Twain

Despite the name of Canadian singer-songwriter, Shania Twain’s best-selling hit, her nails did impress us much at the BRITs, thanks to celebrity manicurist, Lucy Tucker. She created yellow press-on nails featuring gold foil, to complement Twain’s Saint Laurent dress, as well a silver glitter gel pedicure to match her jewellery.
