On Thursday night, the people’s pop princess appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a breathtaking swan inspired ensemble. During her appearance, she joked with host Jimmy Fallon about being “your favorite artist’s favorite artists,” and hit the stage to perform “Good Luck, Babe.” When the 26-year-old graced the stage we couldn’t help but notice her stunning manicure. After some digging, we discovered that nail artist Juan Alvear was responsible for her feathery mani.

The “swan/quill” look was so intricate, but Alvear revealed on Instagram that he used drugstore nail polish to achieve the feathery look. “I achieved this nail look using “arctic jelly” & “buttercup jelly” gloss in gradients,” Alvear revealed before noting that he “finished with ostrich feather wisps.” You can recreate the gradient-style nails Roan rocked, using essie’s $13 Jelly Gloss nail polish you can find right now on Amazon!

When it comes to nail polish, essie has the game on lock. For years the brand has released cult classic polishes while staying on top of emerging trends. Jelly gloss is a sheer yet buildable polish that allows for tons of layering. It leaves behind a blend of glaze and coverage. Best of all? It comes in nine shades, that can be mixed and matched similar to Roan’s.

According to Amazon shoppers, the nail polish “drys fast and thin.” That means you won’t have to worry about smudging your nails after you’ve let them dry for an extended period of time. “This polish is durable and easy to apply,” one five-star shopper shared. “I love the color choices and I plan to order another color soon.”
