Try Demi Lovato's 2-in-1 GRAMMYs Mani With This Easy Trick

This may have been Demi Lovato's very first time attending the Grammy Awards, but that didn't stop her from having a wardrobe change and a mani change! Celebrity manicurist Brittni Rae created an oval-shaped black nail for the red carpet, before taking it to the next level with some added white for her Lionel Richie tribute performance. Follow Rae's tips to recreate each style below.

Red Carpet Mani


“To get the perfect oval shape just like Demi’s, I recommend using a glass nail file,” said Rae. “File from the outer corner of the nail towards the center at a slight angle on each side of the nail, and use a gentle buffer (I LOVE RCM’s Smooth & Shine Buffing Block) on the underside of the nail for a smooth finish. Next we used the chic Red Carpet Manicure Black Stretch Limo Gel Polish to create a look that perfectly complemented Demi’s hair, makeup and outfit.”

Performance Mani

For the quick change, Brittni first painted Demi’s entire nail with Red Carpet Manicure White Hot Nail Lacquer and then (very carefully) added black half circles with Black Stretch Limo Nail Lacquer ($8 each at, leaving a small amount of white in the middle. “I love this look because it is classy and simple, yet keeps her looking cool youthful and cool,” said Rae. “It adds just the right amount of detail to her stunning look. I really think finely detailed nail art is going to make a strong comeback in 2016!””
