Petal pink nails are one of the easiest spring nail trends to rock, and Zendaya's manicurist just shared her go-to shade.
When it comes to style, Zendaya can do no wrong.
The Euphoria and Dune actress consistently tops best-dressed lists on the red carpet, and for good reason. From her pink Valentino gown and tri-color Bulgari necklace at the 2023 SAG Awards to her unforgettable emerald green Vera Wang gown and fiery red hair at the 2019 Emmys, each new look has us wondering exactly how we can recreate the star's style ourselves.
While her custom couture gowns and opulent jewelry aren't exactly accessible, we can still take inspiration from Zendaya's beauty looks. The actress' nail artist, Marina Dobyk, recently shared the secret to Z's petal-pink spring manicure, and it's easy and affordable to DIY at home. Her secret? An $11 nail polish, available on Amazon.
To help you steal Zendaya's style, we've created a step-by-step tutorial to recreate the actress' go-to manicure for spring. For even more trendy and celeb-inspired nail art, check out the micro French nail tutorial and Hailey Bieber's viral glazed donut nails.
Step 1: Prep Your Nails for Polish
Before applying any kind of polish, you'll want to have a flawless base. File or cut your nails down to the desired shape, and smooth out any imperfections.

The key to any at-home mani is a nail file to smooth and shape your nails. This 12-pack of double-sided files have two grit levels: one for buffing and one for shaping.
Step 2: Apply a Base Coat
Dobyk uses CND's Play base coat before applying her color, which is sadly discontinued. However, CND's Stickey anchoring base coat is still available on Amazon.
