Even if you weren’t glued to HBO on Sunday nights when it was airing, you’ve likely heard of Euphoria, even if just for teens’ sparkly makeup. Though the show was initially touted for its makeup looks, the nail art proceeded to get more creative as the episodes went by. And it looks like Sydney Sweeney might be taking some nail inspiration from her on-screen character, Cassie Howard, based on her latest studded French manicure.
On September 5, Sweeney shared a peek of her almond-shaped nails in a video posted to her Instagram Stories. Nail artist Zola Ganzorigt painted each nail with a light pink polish and drew white C-curve tips on every nail except the middle finger. She glued small clear gems to the middle, ring, and thumb fingernails, adhering several to the middle finger and only two to the ring and thumb fingers. Though they are transparent, the charms add a little sparkle and shine to the classic manicure design.
Though many knew Euphoria for its makeup, the manicures became a bigger focus part of season 2, thanks to Alexa Demie. During the show’s second season, Los Angeles-based nail artist Natalie Minerva created a somewhat similar manicure for Cassie: a pale pink, oval-shaped mani with a smattering of jewels adorning each nail. Sweeney’s current 3D set feels like a mix between a traditional French tip and Cassie’s studded nude nails.
