I got a still of Beyonce's nails in the "Telephone" video and I had to try and duplicate this manicure. But halfway through the process I started asking myself, "Why duplicate it when you can take from it and put your own spin on it?" So, my first step in trying to replicate this manicure was to apply a silver base coat to my nails. I chose to use my Sally Hansen Celeb City nail color as it dries fast, applies nicely, and gives me a nice foiled-looking finish. If you're looking for a finish that is smoother than Celeb City, then CND's Chrome ($9), China Glaze's Millenium ($6), or Essie's Steel-ing the Scene ($4) would be good choices since they offer a chrome-type finish.
