The Color Behind Regina King's Elegant Oscar Mani

Watchmen actress Regina King is the epitome of class when it comes to awards fashion, and her appearance at this year's Oscars was no different. To complement her powder pink Versace gown, King opted for a simple gray manicure that mirrored the delicate beading on the dress.

The opaque grey manicure was created by Lead Nail Tech Sydney Buck of Frenchies Nails, and featured layers of CND Vinylux in Cityscape“The grey shade really pulls out the color of the beads without distracting," Buck says. "I also love using CND Vinylux because it hardens similar to a gel, but uses natural light instead of a UV lamp and is safe to take off at home without causing damage to the natural nail."
