Celebrity nail stylist Lisa Logan shared the details behind Beyoncé’s vampy 2014 Grammys manicure on her Instagram account earlier today. I always make sure to
stalk search her account for details whenever Bey steps out with new nails. I am never disappointed! Photo courtesy of People StyleWatch.
Logan said, “Beyoncé is such a creative force with a unique vision and loves experimenting with color. For this particular look, we gravitated to shades of purple and red and decided to start with a base of purple and then layer with red glitter to create a deep, sexy, one of a kind shade. The luster of the red top coat complimented her gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz rings and matching red lip.”
The great news? You can head to your nearest Sephora as the “Drunk In Love” songstress wore Formula X For Sephora Lusters in Atom + Eve, a ruby red glitter, layered over Formula X For Sephora New Classics in Pedal to the Metal, a pearly, metallic purple shade. Finally, be sure to seal your look with Formula X For Sephora Top Coat. Photo courtesy of Beyoncé’s Tumblr.

Sephora Collection: Damaris Lewis in Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in Electra-Pink
I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I spotted this snap of model Damaris Lewis, who recently attended Tyra Banks’s Flawsome Ball. She typed, “My close friends will tell you that it is a struggle to try and make me wear a pink lip. #TomBoysUnite But I had fun in this Sephora brand lip last night at the #flawsomeball.” My bid is on their new Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in Electra-Pink but it could also be their Cream Stain in Forever Fuchsia.
Sephora Collection: Nicole Beharie Uses Brush-On Nourishing Cuticle Oil
I was up doing some early morning research (luxury nude lipsticks for brown skin is in the works y’all) when I saw that Nicole Beharie also spilled the contents of her bag for Us Magazine in February 2014. Intrigued, I zoomed in on this pic when I spotted a familiar product (meaning I recognized the Sephora logo). Right there underneath the red resistance bands and sticking out of a clear cosmetic bag was a Sephora Collection Brush-On Nourishing Cuticle Oil pen (discontinued). What a way to start the day, right?
