Blake Lively never fails to dazzle us with her eye-catching manicures. The 36-year-old actress has debuted everything from minimalist to maximalist nail art over the years, gracing red carpets with subtle monochromes and even sporting New York City–themed nails for a Yankees game. On Monday, June 10, the Gossip Girl alum continued her streak of epic manicures with a luxury nail look that’s making waves on social media. Lively enlisted celebrity nail artist Mei Kawajiri for none other than a Chanel monogrammed manicure, which perfectly complemented her colorful pantsuit for the luxury label’s Tribeca Festival Artists Dinner at The Odeon in New York City.

Lively stepped out in an ensemble fresh from the label’s Spring-Summer 2024 collection. Chanel’s creative director, Virginie Viard, drew inspiration from the gardens of Villa Noailles for the line, resulting in a collection rich with floral details and color, encapsulated perfectly by Lively’s look for the event. She accessorized with diamond earrings and statement rings, but arguably, the highlight was her manicure, which certainly captured the media’s attention.

Kawajiri reposted a TikTok video filmed by Fashionista, capturing the moment when the crowd of press eagerly asked Lively for a close-up of her summer manicure. “Chanel nail art to match with Chanel outfit for @blakelively,” the nail artist captioned her repost, adding that she’s all about the small details that take a manicure to the next level.

Fans, ourselves included, are eager to catch an up-close photo of Lively’s nails, but the video below offers a quick glimpse of how perfectly they match her outfit. Kawajiri painted a dark-colored base adorned with multicolored florals and Chanel’s famed interlaced “CC” monogram. “Look at these—they match my outfit!” Lively told the person recording the video. “Aren’t they incredible?” (Be sure to press “play” on the below video for the full effect.)

This isn’t Kawajiri’s first time doing Lively’s nails. Another standout moment was the aforementioned New York-themed manicure she created for Lively in April 2021. “Guess who got this NY-themed nails?” the manicurist captioned an Instagram gallery at the time, which featured a photo of the playful manicure followed by a picture of the actress. The nail artist gave Lively a sheer base and adorned each nail with Big Apple-themed graphics, including hot dogs, pretzels, a taxi cab, and a Yankees hat.
