Rihanna stunned in a satin ensemble at the BET Awards Sunday night. Keeping things classy, the pop star paired the gold blazer and shorts combo with a traditional French manicure in a cream finish. Celeb nail tech Kimmie Kyees applied Red Carpet Manicure nail lacquer in Candid Moment to get the look. Here’s how Kyees executed the timeless set of nails.

1. File, buff, and push back the cuticles.

2. Apply Red Carpet Manicure Clingy Base Coat. Start by painting a stripe down the center of the nail, then two more stripes on either side. Fill in the entire nail using smooth, even strokes.

3. Next, lightly brush Red Carpet Manicure Candid Moment on the tips of the nail to create the classic French.

4. Seal the look with Red Carpet Manicure Shine On Top Coat.
