Nude was the nail polish choice du jour at The Golden Globes, with everyone from Emma Stone to Sandra Oh opting for the less-is-more look. Here’s a breakdown of some of the best nude manis.
celebrity manicurist Steph Stone
“For tonight’s red carpet, Lili chose essie’s new Gel Couture in Buttoned & Buffed, a beige-toned nude, adding to the romantic feel of her red tulle gown by Khyeli Couture," said Stone. “We enhanced her nail look by adding a single Swarovski stone at the base of each nail bed, playing off her sparkling diamond earrings. The finished look was a perfect neutral nail with a hint of glam!"
celebrity manicurist Emi Kudo
“The gorgeous silver detailing on Emma Stone’s Louis Vuitton gown called for a timeless manicure,” said Kudo. “We chose essie’s new Gel Couture Buttoned & Buffed Nudes collection in the shade Buttoned & Buffed. The creamy nude color played perfectly against her Silver Tassle embellishments and clutch.”
celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles
“Sandra wanted a true blush polish that would complement all three of her looks as host of tonight’s show,” said Aviles. “We opted for essie’s new Gel Couture Buttoned & Buffed Nudes collection in the shade Tailor-Made with Love, a creamy pink nude. With Sandra’s multiple outfit changes throughout the evening, this neutral shade makes for the perfect finishing touch.”
celebrity manicurist Jolene Brodeur
“Essie’s cult-classic shade Ballet Slippers has become a staple for brides everywhere (including the royal family!) so it was only fitting newlywed Kaley Cuoco opted for the pale pink hue too,” said Brodeur. "Kaley's elegant manicure perfectly complemented her navy and cream Monique Lhuillier gown.”
celebrity manicurist Jenna Hipp
“To pair with her custom Alexander McQueen dress, Emily wanted a manicure that had both color and coverage yet wasn’t too pink or too nude,” Hipp said. “We decided on essie’s new Serene Slate collection in the shade Mind-full Meditation, which is an apricot beige-nude. Sugar Daddy was then layered over top for the perfect sheer finish.”
