And the award for best Grammys nail design goes to...

Celebrity nail artist Chaun Peth created a show-stopping, butterfly-inspired nail look for Dua Lipa at the Grammy Awards. Here's how he achieved the look using OPI GelColor.


STEP 1: Apply one coat of OPI GelColor in “Passion” halfway, from cuticle to the middle of the nails. Do not cure

STEP 2: Ombre in OPI GelColor in “Halo There!” by blending from the tip of the nails towards the middle where OPI GelColor in “Passion” meets. Cure for 30 seconds with LED Lamp. Repeat with all 10 nails.

STEP 3: Start drawing out silhouettes of butterflies on each nail with OPI GelColor in “Alpine Snow”. Cure for 30 seconds.

STEP 4: On the right hand blend OPI GelColor in “Suzi Nails New Orleans” with OPI GelColor in “Dreams Need Clara-Fication” together on pinky, ring and thumb nails. Blend OPI GelColor in “No Room For The Blues” with “Dreams Need Clara-Fication” on the middle and pinky nails and apply OPI GelColor “Kiss Me on My Tulips” on the pointer finger. Cure for 30 seconds.

STEP 5: Repeat Step 4 on the left hand and cure for 30 seconds.  

STEP 6: Using OPI GelColor in “Black Onyx” draw in the lines and details of the butterflies. Cure for 30 seconds.

STEP 7: Lastly, apply OPI GelColor Stay Shiny Top Coat and cure for 30 seconds.
