5 Campy Nails From The Met Gala You Can Recreate

There’s really no room for subtlety when the Met Gala dress code says camp.

Though the Met Gala look’s managed to blow everything out of the water, a few of us were focused on the nail looks that accompanied this level of intensity. From instant conversation-starters to blinged-out digits, we’ve rounded up the best “Camp nails” that you’ll want to screenshot for your next nail appointment.

And on that note…

Not only is this burgundy look on Constance Wu totally in theme with her dress (and matches her lipstick), the chunky Swarvoski gemstones also adds some sparkle without overwhelming this solid colour mani.

Consider these nearly-nude designs on Lucy Boytnon if your manicures tend to lean on the minimally chic. The tiny details — like these dainty silver crystals — gives your mani “newly engaged” vibes.

The kind of nail art seen on Candice Swanepoel that will have you saying, “Ice Queen — House Targaryen, please.”

If you’re partial to brighter shades, try a marbled nail with a cotton-candy blue base and white accents like Kim Kardashian’s after-party Met Gala look. Talk about a dreamy colour play.
