Like many stars, Bella Hadid has been loving the French manicure trend and experimenting with different versions of the iconic nail look over the last year and a half β€” including a neon-yellow number that we can't get out of our heads. Now, ahead of her 24th birthday on October 9, the model is repping an epic glow-in-the-dark manicure that's nothing short of magical.

Hadid revealed the look, which features adorable designs of colorful mushrooms and flowers, via her Instagram Story on Sunday afternoon in a series of photos. As usual, she gave a shout-out to her go-to manicurist, Mei Kawajiri, a New York City-based artist who also works with A-listers like Emily Ratajkowski and Dua Lipa, among others. In one photo, it showcases Kawajiri sitting in front of an array of rainbow pigments with the caption: "@nailsbymei she's an artist."

Kawajiri shared several snapshots of the supermodel's nails on her Instagram grid, along with the caption, "Happy Birthday Nails for @bellahadid πŸ„πŸ’žπŸ„πŸŒΌπŸ„πŸ’«πŸ„πŸ¦‹πŸ„πŸ’…πŸ„βœ¨ #nailsbymei." Naturally, fans are obsessed with the next-level nail look and leaving comments like, "Fantastic. So cute," "Soooo cute!!!!" and "ok these are yummy."

The glow-in-the-dark factor is definitely what makes this manicure so remarkable and Instagram-worthy. To achieve a similar effect at home, you can use a product like Orly's Glow Up Top Coat, which can be worn over any color to give it a glowing finish in the dark and dimmed lighting.

Props to Hadid for such an epic pre-birthday nail look β€” and, of course, to Kawajiri for making the star's b-day manicure dreams to life.
