Last night’s 2014 Golden Globes Awards recognized the best performances in style, nails—oh, and acting talent. From ornate gowns and sleek hairstyles, nails were kept simple and elegant.
Stars kept things soft with neutral hues. On Sarah Hyland, celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles layered on Essie’s BBF Best Boyfriend, topped with Essie’s Blushig Bride for a nude mani with hints of coral. Julia Louis-Dreyfus also wore a neutral shade on short nails and best actress winner Amy Adams claimed her trophy with nude-manicured hands.
And then, there’s Zooey.
Arguably the original nail queen of the red carpet, Zooey Deschanel’s playful nail art caught second looks once again, this time with a gold-and-white daisy pattern. The manicurist behind her look is Tom Bachik, celebrity nail tech who’s painted the tips of Heidi Klum, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez and taken home numerous beauty industry awards.
While nail colours were safe and classic with minimal design, stars were rocking out the gems and stones—perhaps the manicures were toned down to maximize the impact with jewelry? Lupita Nyong’o stunned us all with that gorgeous, giant gold cocktail ring and Zoe Sandana showed off her sparkling Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring. One big exception to this minimal nude hue trend is Kelly Osbourne, who combined glitzy gold hues with nail art in the shape of the Golden Globe statue—topped with simple rings and studded bracelet (image below).
