Get The Nail Look – Beyonce’s “Why Don’t You Love Me?” Video

beyonce why dont you love me nail polish turquoise nails Literally within minutes of watching Beyonce’s latest video, “Why Don’t You Love Me,” I was getting tweets to find out her nail polish color. Turquoise is huge this season so it’s no wonder that a trendsetter like Beyonce would be wearing the color on screen.

Beyoncé is always on her nail game thanks to her east & west coast nail team, Celebrity Manicurists Tom Bachik and Lisa Logan. After all she was one of the first celebs to wear Minx.

The video, with its grainy old school vibe and Beyonce’s campy performance as a 60′s housewife, is the perfect platform for a soft sea foam nail.  For this shoot Tom Bachik was on hand to tend to her tips.  Can you guess what color she’s wearing??  See if you’re right after the jump!

beyonce why dont you love me chanel nouvelle vague nail polish If you guessed Chanel Nouvelle Vague, give yourself a pat on the back.  The turquoise cream from the spring pop art inspired collection was definitely a great choice for this shoot.  It has a vintage feel but it’s also very fresh.  I love it!

Nouvelle Vague is sold out online but you may be able to snag a bottle from your local Chanel counter.

Want Beyonce’s look for less? Try China Glaze For Audrey one of my all-time fave turquoise polishes. It’s a tad darker than Nouvelle Vague but more affordable and accessible. Check your local Sally Beauty Supply.

Have you watched the video yet?  What do you think of Beyonce’s nail color choice?  Other than For Audrey, what colors do you suggest as a Nouvelle Vague substitute?

    My abosolute favorite color for nail polish in any shade. Orly has a similar shade this season, I think it’s called Gumdrop

    I did my nails using China Glaze “For Audrey” shade and I loved it. It’s my favorite color ever. I rave about it all the time.

  14. Danoyella says:

    Ginger and Liz’s Boy Toy seems to be pretty close to this as well.

  15. cocofiere says:

    How does Nina Ultra Pro in “In a Tiff” compare? I’m thinking about swatching it and going to my Chanel counter tomorrow to compare.

  16. Jo says:

    Damone Roberts posted on Twitter about this video, and said he was excited about the polish she was wearing, and kinda insinutated it was his polish?????

  17. Jo says:

    Sorry his polish as in the OPI Damone Roberts 1968.

  18. Rani says:

    OMg, thanks so much was lookin for this since i saw the video !!

  19. Brianne333 says:

    I thought that it was a different color in several shots because it looks so different in each scene of the video. I like it a lot when she’s in the bedroom scene (which makes it look a bit more grey), but hate it when she’s got the hat on. Weird!

    I want to be able to wear a color like this, but it’s super unflattering on a pale pale pale girl like me :( I keep trying but it just never works out with these teals and aquas!

  20. sammy says:

    hiya i thought it was that too but sold out when i tried to buy it. i love the colour. i just bought barry m (blueberry) instead.
    great price

  21. Kiki says:

    Nouvelle Vague is a (music) group. Wonder if they know Chanel swiped their name.

  22. Lau says:

    What a beautiful color !
    I wonder if the Sally Hansen “Insta Dri brisk blue” comes in the same category. What do you think ?

  23. 7lady says:

    Just got For Audrey by China Glaze! I love it love it! So fun so girly. I was wearing the hell outta Shorts by OPI…but now it’s Audrey for the rest of the summer.

  24. Sarah says:

    Yay! Thank you for this. I’ve been looking for a color like this ever since I saw Drew Barrymore’s nails when she wore that yellow and black Alexander McQueen dress. Although according to what I read, it was greener than I’d like. But it looked light turquoise in the photo. Then I saw Bey’s nails in that video and said ‘That’s the color I want!’. Unfortunately I read this too late and the Chanel Nouvelle Vague is sold out (although it’s going for $144.95 on Amazon). Thanks everyone for the alternatives given. (sorry this is so long)
