Lizzo Sported Wood Nail Art and Now We Want to Wear the Trend Too

Another day, another nail trend to try

Lizzo is a powerhouse of a performer and, if her red carpet look from the 2019 BET Awards is anything to go by, a seasoned stylista as well. Not only was her angelic on-stage ensemble cute AF, but her red carpet wooden look – complete with wood nail art – was truly something to behold. And it has also got nail artists on the ‘Gram copying this iconic look. We hope you are ready for yet another manicure trend, because this nature-inspired brown, textured look is going to be everywhere. Including on our nails.

Got Wood?

Lizzo managed to firmly cement her spot as one of our fave singers after her attendance at this year’s BET Awards. And this isn’t just because she played an *actual flute* on stage mid-song (although that moment will defs go down in entertainment-industry history) but because she sashayed down the red carpet dressed in wood-inspired lewk. Or, more accurately, tree bark. This is one of those fashion concepts that probably raised a few eyebrows, but her – and her glam squad – delivered!

Believe it or not, wood nail art isn’t that new, with a few nail techs having posted this look to social media in the past.

But now that this look has been spotted on one of the most popular entertainers of the year, it is no doubt going to take off in a BIG way.

This look can be created by selecting a brown base coat that you like, and then adding the design on top of it, either by using a nail art pen or a stamping kit. Stamping plates are the easiest and most precise way to make sure your wood looks legit, and are easy to use so you don’t have to fork out loads of cash at the salon. Practice makes perfect, y’all.

Want to try the wood nail art trend? Here’s a nail stamping plate so that your texture is on point.
