That's it; the verdict is in: Zendaya won the 2022 Oscars.

Jaws hit the floor Sunday evening as the 25-year-old actress showed up to the 94th annual Academy Awards in a Valentino Haute Couture white cropped shirt and silver sequin floor-length skirt.

The "Dune" star finished off the look with a pair of crystal-embellished Valentino Garavani shoes, a diamond necklace, and stacks of diamond tennis bracelets by the luxury jewellery brand Bulgari.

And while eyes understandably drifted towards Zendaya's many diamond-encrusted accessories, it's her silver mirrored nails that caught our attention (most likely because it's the only thing she had on that we can actually afford).

The trendy mirrored manicure was done by the "Euphoria" star's manicurist Lisa Kon and was paired beautifully with Zendaya's sequin-embroidered Valentino skirt.

Posting a close-up of Zendaya's nails on Instagram, Kon captioned the photo, "this manicure is not the easiest to perform; for the perfect result, you need to do a perfect alignment of a rubber base and use a special powder for the most reflective effect."

Fans of the look were quick to comment on Kon's two Zendaya-themed Instagram posts, calling the manicure "stunning" and "so pretty!"

"One of my fave looks of the night," wrote one fan. "Obsessed."

"This is so cool!" Echoed another.

For nail buffs eager to replicate Zendaya's trendy manicure at home, Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel promises a shiny and long-lasting look for less.

The details

The next best thing to a pricey salon manicure, Sally Hansen's two-step Miracle Gel promises long-lasting results that you can achieve from the comfort of your home.

The Miracle Gel nail colour and top coat activator replicate a traditional gel manicure's colour and shine without using an LED or UV lamp. The two-step system is formulated to be more chip-resistant than regular nail polish and, according to the brand, can last for up to eight days without scratches or chips.

After applying step one of the Miracle Gel system, the nail colour, users finish off the look with Sally Hansen's specially-formulated top coat. While the top coat is available in both matte and shiny, to replicate Zendaya's mirror-effect nails at home, shoppers will want to use the brand's top-rated shiny coat.

What people are saying

The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Colour has earned an average rating of 4.1 stars from nearly 24,000 reviews on Amazon.

According to one reviewer, the two-step system is "incredibly long-lasting and beautiful."

"I can't believe" that my nails "haven't chipped" and have "stayed looking shiny" after almost two weeks of wear. It's "definitely worth it!"

I "love" Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel nail polish, says another shopper. "I have weak nails," and I find nail polish "always chips or peels" on me. On the other hand, the Miracle Gel "lasts twice as long" as regular nail polish, "if not more."

It's the "closest thing" you can get to "gel nails," writes a third user. It "doesn't blister or chip" and "stays on really well."

Despite its more than 16,000 five-star reviews, some say the Miracle Gel is "just ok."

It "started to wear off" after about four days, says one shopper. It "did last longer" than regular polish, but not by much.

It's a "nice colour," but I'm "not impressed" with how long it lasts, writes another. It's not "what I was hoping for."

The verdict

Beloved by thousands of Amazon shoppers, the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel two-step system has been called the "closest thing" you can get to a professional manicure at home. However, despite thousands of rave reviews, some reviewers call the polish "just ok," something to keep in mind before heading to checkout.
