Hailee Steinfeld’s French manicure for her birthday: see photos +2023

It may have been Hailee Steinfeld’s 26th birthday on December 11th, but she decided to give the world a gift with her latest take on the French manicure trend.

Let’s be clear: this is not your average French manicure. While it incorporated the look’s signature white tips, go to the celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik decided to give Steinfeld’s nails a glittery plus treatment: He painted the base of the nails with a gold glitter polish color that matched the Multihyphenate star’s mesh dress, right down to the tips of the nails. Then, instead of stopping there, he added clear gel extensions, which he left unpainted, and wrapped the extra length into an almond shape for added dramatic effect. The end result was a translucent French manicure that looked both glamorous and quirky — not to mention the perfect inspiration for any upcoming holiday party.

Steinfeld completed the look with a bronze smoky eye, courtesy of the makeup artist Ash K Holm and soft, cascading waves from the barber Laura Polko. The star’s nail art was just one of many fun designs she’s experimented with this year — from her Valentine’s themed manicure to her subtle “supermodel” nails — but this is easily her boldest.
