The color of your nails may not be the largest concern when creating an outfit, but a manicure holds the power to change up your entire look. A glossy red is daring, hot pink is playful, and a neutral nail polish is arguably the most timeless option of them all. If you've always thought of muted hues as boring, allow Brie Larson's nail polish from the Captain Marvel premiere to convince you otherwise. The actor opted for a soft nude with a touch of shimmer, making it the versatile spring color to wear all season long.
Larson arrived on the red carpet in Hollywood on Mon. for the premiere of her latest film, Captain Marvel, alongside co-stars Gemma Chan and Lashana Lynch. Larson stunned in a custom gown by Rodarte, featuring a v-neck, thin straps, and a beige slip layered under sheer tulle covered in star appliqués. She complemented her gorgeous, glimmering dress with equally elaborate jewelry by APM Monaco in the form of two celestial-shaped rings.
Her hairstylist, Bryce Scarlett, styled Larson's bright blonde hue in a deep side part to show off her multi-tiered drop earrings. He then flipped up her ends so they just grazed her collarbones. As for makeup, Nina Park focused on accentuating Larson's naturally radiant skin with bronzed cheeks, nude lips, and a subtle highlight.
Although they didn't necessarily draw all of the attention, Larson's neutral nails acted as the ideal finishing touch to her glamorous ensemble.
While nude nails may seem like a one-step process, Larson's nail artist, Ashlie Johnson, took to Instagram on Mon. evening to share the (surprisingly lengthy) steps. Johnson, who's worked with other big names like Kate Bosworth and Gwyneth Paltrow, let fans in on the exact details of Larson's manicure, including the full product lineup.
Johnson used Chanel polishes to achieve the actor's sophisticated look, including a base coat, a soft white hue, and a top coat that's designed to mimic the lasting effects of a gel manicure. The secret touch? A dust of silver chrome sparkle before applying the top coat to add just the right amount of shimmer.
