Dua Lipa is leaning into the '70s aesthetic. The "Levitating" singer took to Instagram last night to share a few pics from her holiday in St. Barths, where she also performed at the LuisaViaRoma x UNICEF Gala, and we couldn't help but notice a little detail: her nails.

Lipa, who is known for having fun with her nail art — and who has tried everything from crystal french tips to animal print designs — stayed true to her signature almond shape but took a nostalgic approach with her manicure design. Using a silver-chrome base colour, the star added a textured droplet design to her nails that mimicked the globular shape of the lava inside a lava lamp. The "lava" was painted in a green multi-chrome colour that shifts magenta in different lighting, giving a Future Nostalgia spin to the design.

Dua Lipa is a well-known fan of the '70s, with many of her fashion and beauty choices mimicking styles of the era. And while we're unsure if we can look as good as she does in '70s fashion, nails feel like a pretty safe place to start. Take a closer look at Lipa's design ahead.
