She’s taken two nights off from new mommyhood this week to support hubby Jay-Z, but Beyoncé needn’t look further than her fingernails to be reminded of the new girl running the world these days: daughter Blue Ivy Carter.

“You see the blue nails. You see the IV tattoo on her finger. It’s clear that she was bringing Blue along with her because she doesn’t want to be away from her for a second,” Beyoncé’s longtime manicurist, Lisa Logan, tells PEOPLE of her Monday manicure.

Logan, who painted the singer’s fingernails with Nails Inc.’s new “Baker Street” polish, says the whole experience felt serendipitous. “I don’t roll with less than 200 bottles of polish on any given day,” she explains. “When I pulled all of my colors out, [Baker Street] and two other colors were sitting at the top of the pile, and [Beyoncé] said, ‘I want this!’ She didn’t even look or blink at the other colors. She was like, ‘Oh no, I want this,’” Logan recalls. “Ironically, when I came in, the first thing she asked me for was Minx. I always have Minx nails, [but] this was the one day I didn’t have them on me!”

So how is the newly manicured mom adjusting to motherhood? “Amazingly,” Logan says. “When I see her, I’m like, ‘Girl, you’re glowing.’ She’s so elated. Motherhood is written all over her face. She’s owning it and wearing it well.”
