Nails of the met gala 2022

Here at The Holy Nail we love nails and seeing a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous. Where better to see the beauty of nails and what they can add to a look than the fashion event of the year? The 2022 Met Gala theme was "In America: An Anthology of Fashion," with the dress code being Gilded Glamour and White Tie. Guests were asked to "embody the grandeur—and perhaps the dichotomy—of Gilded Age New York," inspired by the late 19th century through a modern lens. This year we have seen some serious nail looks, many of which are press ons, to match the glamorous outfits as well as many of the male attendees finally sporting beautiful manis too! Let's take a look at some of our favourite nails of this year's Met Ball. CARDI B

Cardi B doesn't do things by halves and this year was no exception. She drips gold wearing this Versace dress made entirely of gold chains complete with Medusa medallions. Her nails by artist @marienailz are clearly made to match, she wears long sculpted stiletto in metallic gold with matching gold chains draped across and rhinestones. LIZZO

Lizzo wore an opulent gown designed by Thom Browne, a split black corset dress and golden embroidered coat. Her nails by artist Eri Ishizu were truly the star of the show however, sculpted into super long corkscrews with a black base, bedazzled with metallic gold chrome outer. She even managed to play the flute on the red carpet with those nails! CIARA

Ciara rocks this incredible Michael Kors sequinned zebra print dress but what really stands out to us is the chrome almond nails, they are just shining through and really make the look. SHAWN MENDES
