Updated: Thanks to some digging at Buzzfeed News, we can now confirm Beyoncé’s nails did not change colour halfway through her performance, and rather the photos taken of Bey with silver nails were from a dress rehearsal beforehand.
Proving that no, Beyoncé does not have magic nail powers, the news has crushed fans who thought she pulled off the greatest on-stage beauty change we’ve ever seen. But hey, if Bey decided she did want to change her nails mid-performance, we know she’d pull it off.
Originally published, April 16, 2018: If you were one of the millions of people watching Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella performance last night, you may have noticed the multiple outfit changes during the iconic performance, but did you notice the nail colour changes as well?
Yes, you read that right: Beyoncé managed to change her nail colour as well as her outfits whilst performing to millions of people across the world.
As picked up by Twitter, keen-eyed fans noticed Bey’s look changed from more than just Olivier Rousteing’s custom Balmain outfits (although there were plenty of those, too), with the Queen going from black to silver nails in a matter of minutes.
As anyone watching will attest, Bey’s outfit change breaks were far from long, so our best bet is that Beyoncé had nail artists on hand (literally) to help pull it off. Whether she was wearing two layers of stick on nails, or there was some kind of colour-change top coat on hand, one thing is for sure: she nailed it.
Magic or otherwise, we’re in awe of our Coachella Queen.
