Red carpets are the epitome of glamour, and this year’s events were no exception. While we love the outfits and accessories, the gorgeous beauty looks captured our hearts. Fun hairdos and eye-catching makeup were indeed memorable, but once you are done eyeing the more prominent part of the attendees’ looks, we suggest you look at their dapper manicures.
We have seen the most minimalist to the most OTT nails this season. Getting event-specific manicures has secured its place with celebrities and is a huge trend now. Just as the stylists and the makeup artists, nail artists have found their place in celebrities’ core team. These celebrity manicures from the Oscars to Cannes Film Festival help you decide what to get next. Here are the best celebrity nail looks at the red carpet events in 2022.
The Best Celebrity Nail Looks At The Red Carpet
1. Pure White
Emma Chamberlin walked the Met Gala red carpet with white, coffin-shaped nails by the nail artist, Betina Goldstein. While Met Gala looks are always exaggerated, the inspiration here is to bring white nails back in trend, if you haven’t already tried it. Play around with different textures on alternate fingers or just one finger for an added twist.
2. Metallic Chrome
Jessica Chastain’s nail artist Julie Kandelec matched her manicure with her Gucci gown. Her Oscars nail look was a custom made peach metallic colour. Julie’s inspiration for the nail look was the hope and light that Jessica’s character gave to the LGBTQI community in her film. Metallic nails complement basic as well as blingy outfits. They were a huge trend in the 2000s and have made a comeback now.
3. Gold Tips
Megan Thee Stallion, as usual, had her lipstick happed nails, but artist Coca Michelle added her own twist to this traditional french manicure. All except the middle fingers had a transparent base with golden tips but the unconventional pairing of gold with blue takes the spotlight. If it’s nail art, make it extra!
4. Milk Bath
Celebrities like Kristen Stewart, Elle Fanning, and Bella Hadid opted for the milk bath manicure at the Cannes Film Festival. If you are new to the milk bath nail trend, they are milky coloured acrylic nails when traditionally worn tiny colourful flowers are embedded. These celebrities have taken the modern approach by skipping the flowers for a simpler look by leaning towards a milky colour.
5. Very Jelly
Singer Michelle Zauner aka Japanese breakfast was like a ray of sunshine at the Grammys. She matched her monochromatic bright yellow outfit with her makeup and jelly nails. Jelly nails are the fun nail trend that mainly works with bright and pop colours. The idea here is to opt for monochromatic nails for specific events. Pairing them with a texture or a nail design looks chic and can be achieved with minimum effort.
6. Neon Pop
Pop colours are trending in the fashion and the beauty world this year. Gwen Stefani brought vibrant a neon look to the Met Gala. Her nail artist Eri Ishizu chose long square-shaped nails for Gwen to match her outfit. Plain neon nails can be colour-blocked or simply worn with an outfit that has solid shades.
7. Bold Red
Red nails make a bold statement and celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Sienna Miller and Gigi Hadid have flaunted classic red manicures for the red carpet events. Put on your favourite red lip colour with a red manicure if you want a fail-proof, classy look.
