Have you ever wondered what Beyonce, Rihanna, or Jennifer Lopez to get their nails ready for their many red carpet appearances? Well, I’ve got the scoop! I chatted up celebrity manicurist, Elle who told me that Beyonce, Rihanna and J.Lo are all fans of Red Carpet Manicure, the first professional salon gel manicure that you can do at home. Though obviously they aren’t doing theirs themselves.
“Have you seen Jennifer’s nails on American Idol?” she asked me as she begin to give me the star treatment during a press preview of Red Carpet Manicure. I love the results, and the news is this is a look I can give myself. You can too if you know how to paint your nails neatly.
