Okay, so we’re stuck at home and we probably haven’t had the energy to dress up in a while. It feels like a waste to put on your best OOTD with nowhere to go. And you don’t really want to put on a full face of makeup because what if you want to take a nap in the middle of the day? Yet, you still want to beautify your routine because it may be a small thing, but it can really lift your mood. A quick solution would be to do your nails!
You’ll be able to easily appreciate it since you see them all the time. Also, it’s a great way to practice self-care. You can go from a super simple manicure to crazy nail art.
Here are a few nailspirations from some of our favorite Chinese celebrities:
1. Constance Wu
You can never go wrong with a red lip, and who’s to say that isn’t true for nail polish? The Crazy Rich Asians star rocks this beautiful blinged-out manicure in a deep red to add drama and sophistication to her look.
French manicures are a classic, but they can get a bit boring sometimes. Another Crazy Rich Asians star Awkwafina added a subtle twist to her French manicure with a black accent instead of the traditional white tip. If black is too harsh for you, maybe a dark pink or navy blue would better suit your taste?
3. Gong Li
She’s regarded as one of the finest Chinese actresses, and for good reason! A classic beauty for sure. She goes for a solid color but makes sure that it’s still eye-catching. She painted her nails in a beautiful white shade that you’re sure to notice even if you aren’t focusing on her hands. At the same time, it manages not to distract from her beauty. But could anything really take your eyes away from her face for too long?
I didn’t think so.
4. Fan Bingbing
This Chinese media mogul has not failed to impress us in the style department. She never fails to be chic and interesting with her fashion choices. Her checker-print nails may be from 2013, but that doesn’t stop it from being a great nail art idea that you can try in 2021.
5. Jolin Tsai
We know, these aren’t her actual nails, but who’s stopping you from purchasing press-on nails that can showcase your style and personality just like singer Jolin did in this photo for her Ugly Beauty tour? Press-on acrylic nails are an easy, mess-free way to get the manicure of your dreams without spending an eternity trying to achieve it.
