Lil Nas X goes firetruck red on top, wet chrome on the bottom

Stop the press! Christmas just came early. Lil Nas X is doing his best to spread holiday cheer in these dire straits, and we have to say: He's doing a wonderful job. You've heard of head-to-toe monochrome, but have you ever seen it go this hard?

It doesn't stop up top, either—the 'Old Town Road' rapper doubled down on the holiday glam with this chrome manicure courtesy of @sojinails.

What do you think about this look? Cop or drop?

Chrissy Teigen gets 'The Rachel'

If you're reading this and you don't know what 'The Rachel' is by now, we really don't know what to say. The cut is Jennifer Aniston's most iconic look to date, with every 'it'-girl from the '90s and the early '00s rushing to the salons to replicate the look. In simple terms, it was a cultural reset of sorts.

In fact, the cut has come back into style, with many different celebrities like Selena Gomez sporting the look. The latest celeb to hop on the Jen-train is none other than Chrissy Teigen. The mum-of-two took to Instagram to sport her new tresses, and we have to say we're into it. The cut is the work of celebrity hairstylist Tracy Cunningham, and while it's not an exact replica of the '90s staple, the resemblance is definitely there.

Gigi Hadid has some new curtain bangs

The new mum may be keeping busy with baby Zigi (not her real name, just what we're calling her), but that won't stop her from treating herself. The supermodel's mini-makeover is a simple (yet welcomed) take on the curtain bang trend. Wispy, lengthy, and delicate, Hadid absolutely nails the look.

She's not the first celeb to hop on the trend this year either—others like Jennifer Lopez, Ciara, and Selena Gomez (again) have done so too!

Megan Thee Stallions matchy-matchy marble manicure is a serve

The 'WAP' singer is no stranger to a killer manicure—it seems we've always got something to drool over week after week. For instance, there was the weeb-tastic Jojo's Bizzare Adventure mani, the graphic french mani from the AMAs, and this bubblegum-pink set for good measure.

This week's nail art, however, may be our favourite to date. The earth-toned marble mani is a showstopper on its own, but when paired with the matching jumpsuit, it's an absolute jaw-dropper. Here's our newest prediction for 2021 manicures—nails that match your outfit's patterns.

Kylie Jenner snakes out

The beauty mogul said 'nah' to traditional festive nail art this year (TBH, we're not feeling the holiday cheer either)—rather than a snowman or a cute Santa hat, Jenner's stiletto manicure is all about the earthy snake print.

Celebrity nail artist Chaun Legend is the mastermind behind the manicure, and—lucky for those of you looking to replicate it—he shared his whole process in a TikTok video.

Pete Davidson is removing all of his tattoos

If you're familiar with the SNL star (and former fiancée of Ariana Grande), you'll know that Pete Davidson is absolutely covered in tattoos. Seriously—according to Body Art Guru, he has (had?) over 100 tattoos, most of which are odes to past relationships and personal inspirations. In light of this, you may be wondering why he would possibly get rid of his collection. Well, we have an answer.

In a follow-up tweet, McGranaghan explained that Davidson's choice to remove his ink was one of convenience: "No, it's real. He even showed his hand, which is already done. He said it takes 3-4 hours in the makeup chair to cover them, so he figured 'it would be easier to get them burned off.'"

While we admire the commitment to his art, we are a little concerned considering that laser tattoo removal is a notoriously painful procedure. That said—his body, his choice.

Sabrina Carpenter gets her first tattoo

Tattoo artist Dr. Woo has kept business booming this year despite the ongoing pandemic thanks to his loyal celebrity clientele including Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber, and Drake. In fact, just last week, we saw Bella Hadid get two new beautiful (albeit misspelled) tats on her upper arms courtesy of the tattooist. This week, however, Woo has earned yet another celeb client in singer-actor Sabrina Carpenter.

The delicate lettering spells out 'Lucky', according to a post on Carpenter's personal Instagram. She captioned her post with "baby’s first !! imma lucky girl", so our best guess is that the tat is an homage to her gratefulness. We love it—what about you?
