Bella Hadid (opens in new tab) is no stranger to freeing the nipple, but in one of her latest Instagram posts, the model covered up with a splash oh metallic gold paint.

The photo, posted on Friday, features Bella lounging (opens in new tab) about in a lush green setting, leaning against a very cozy looking sofa. The model is wearing minimal clothing in the shot—just a pair of white bikini bottoms and a blue button-down, sans any actually buttoning down.

The open shirt exposes Bella's chest (opens in new tab), but in a move that keeps the photo Instagram safe (opens in new tab), she covered her nipples with a splash of gold, metallic paint. The paint may have been a necessary accessory in order to post the photo on Instagram, which is notorious for pulling photos (opens in new tab) that feature exposed female (or even just female-presenting) nipples. The social media site has been known to suspend the accounts of users who post images featuring bare nipples (although, again, only nipples that visually present as female).

Unfortunately, the nipple paint does have the effect of pulling focus from Bella's Chrome Hearts (opens in new tab) sunglasses, which the post is actually promoting.

"Aura bella™️ 🔮," she captioned the photo, in which she wears a pair of sunglasses from her Chrome Hearts x Bella (opens in new tab) collaboration.

After the nipple paint pic, Bella shared another (fully and completely clothed) photo highlighting her Chrome Hearts shades:
