This week, 14-year-old actress Millie Bobby Brown was named the youngest UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and to celebrate, she painted Stephen Colbert’s nails. No, really. While the Brit has already been crowned the youngest TIME 2018 Most Influential Person, she can now add celebrity manicurist to that ever-growing list of impressive accolades.
Last night, in chatting with Colbert about her new gig as an advocate for youth rights, Brown, who was clad in blue, a sartorial choice that supported World Children’s Day, shared her passion for a teal-colored manicure—and her disdain for present company’s lack of pride. “I’m going to have to paint your nails blue,” she said while whipping out a bottle of Essie turquoise polish. Wearing a matching, icy-azure winged liner, Brown proceeded to carefully paint short strokes of lacquer onto the Late Show host’s fingers—while discussing important matters, of course, such as activism, YouTube beauty tutorials, the Spice Girls….
The Stranger Things 2 actress has been vocal about political issues in the past, having supported the ACLU and GLAAD. And as UNICEF’s new ambassador, Brown will no doubt continue to stand as a role model for her generation—neon-painted tips and all.
