Keke Palmer has been providing non-stop beauty inspiration lately and we have been loving every minute of it. From bombshell waves to paint-chip nails that remind us of all the best parts of summer, she has landed — and remained — on our mood boards over the past few months. Her latest look deserves the same level of adoration, thanks in part, to her textured nails that we want to recreate ASAP.

Extensions were added to Palmer's nails, which gave them about an inch and a half of extra length. They were filed into a tapered-square shape before different shades of polish were added to each one. Colours like sheer blue, black, and even orange were used for the base, and to take the look up a notch, different 3D designs like swirls and abstract line work were added on top. This resulted in a truly one-of-a-kind manicure that just screams summer. She finished the beauty look with a high bun and soft makeup.

Textured nails have been having a serious moment this season, and the look has been spotted at Fashion Weeks and on social media alike. Trends like seashell designs and liquid-molten nails rely heavily on the use of hard gel. Should you need some timely inspiration ahead of that next mani appointment, take a closer look at Palmer's nails below.
