Queen Bey has been traversing North America on her disco ball-tiled horse to take us to Club “Renaissance.” And since the day the tour was announced, its sparkly, pearl-encrusted aesthetic has been penetrating every aspect of the fashion and beauty worlds—including nail art. After all, the album and tour have given the Beyhive plenty of inspiration to choose from: Beyoncé has taken the stage in everything from pink neoprene and precisely placed feathers to gleaming metallics and sequined camouflage, by designers including Schiaparelli, Louis Vuitton, Brandon Blackwood, and many, many more.

If you’re headed to one of the remaining tour stops for your first (or second, or third…) “Renaissance” outing and want to show up and show out for the Queen—from head to fingertips—we’ve got you covered. Read on for 10 “Renaissance” tour nail ideas that will take you from the opening act to the encore in style.

Fan Me Off


The chrome webs on this oat milk set would look phenomenal waving a fan during “Heated.” (They would also be a great way to welcome the aliens if they decide to pull up for the show.)

That’s That Glow

These pearly chrome nails will go perfectly with your “Renaissance” ‘fit, regardless of what you’re wearing—because that iridescent glow goes with everything.

Superstar Supernova


“Renaissance” looks are all about the details, and the hand-painted stars in this look are the perfect final touch. Unless you’re confident in your freehand skills, you might want to enlist the help of a pro for this look.

Tiffany Blue Billboards


Queen Bey has donned a series of stunning blue looks throughout the tour, so it’s safe to say blue is the color of royalty, too. We love this chrome French manicure take on the trendy Tiffany Blue hue.

Hit the Spots


Skip the expected flourishes at the tip and add a design to the vertical curved edge of your nail. This graphic black and white set evokes the stunning Marc Jacobs dress Beyoncé debuted during her New Jersey tour dates.

Celestial Chrome

With Cardi B and Selena Gomez spotted sporting the shape, it’s safe to say the square mani is back. Channel your inner “Alien Superstar” with this sexy celestial set.

Too Classy for This World


A white double French tip looks even more on trend when set against a glazed donut base. We can’t help but think of Bey’s dreamy Georges Hobeika ensemble when looking at this manicure.

In the (Holographic) Bag

We can’t get over the creativity on display in this set by nail artist @brushedbyb_: She recycled strips of product packaging to take this disco-inspired look to the next level.

Gem French Tips


These baby blue French tips are much easier to emulate than you might think. Apply a neutral-pink base, and let it fully dry. Then, paint on your tips. Wait for them to fully dry, then festoon your fingers with nail gems and lock it all in with a top coat.

Pink a Side


If you’re opting for a solid color, might we suggest a shimmering hot pink over silver chrome or glitter? Here, nail artist @lolo.nailedit used Holo Taco’s Nail Polish in Life in Plastic ($14)—which looks like Bey’s hot pink Ivy Park ‘fit in a bottle.
