Happy Friday kids! One more Golden Globe wrap up then I’m done, swear. If it wasn’t my favorite award show of the year, I wouldn’t be so gaga. Of course the Grammy’s are coming up and you KNOW there will be at least a few crazy nail looks on that red carpet. Can’t WAIT!

Anywho, the biggest nail trends of the night were red and vampy shades. Dark nails just won’t go away, not that I’m complaining, and classic reds are huge right now.

Can you guess who rocked the looks above? Find out after the jump.

Red Carpet Reds

Beautiful, charming and hilarious, Isla Fisher was stunning with her dark red nails. I’m not the biggest fan of the dress but I just find her adorable.

Get The Look: OPI Got The Blues For Red

Susan Sarandon mixes a hint of sexy with age appropriate understated glamour. Her classic red nails are the perfect accent.

Evan Rachel Wood transitioned her crimson tips from last week’s Critic’s Choice Awards to a more vibrant robust red.

Get The Look: CND Tabloid

Anne Hathaway has certainly been all about the red nails lately. She wore red to the Critics Choice Awards and Bride Wars premiere.

Get The Look: Lancome Vernis Magnetic in Code Red

Vixenish Vamps

Selma Hayek‘s dark nails surprised me. She always struck me as someone who prefers a clean, nude look.

Get The Look: Zoya Raven

Miss Golden Globe, Rumer Willis, complimented her plum gown with a dark eggplant nail.

Get The Look: Orly Plum Noir

Have you read Mindy Kaling‘s blog, Things I’ve Bought That I Love? In one of her posts she discusses how every girl only needs 5 shades of polish. FIVE?? Is she mad? Her pick for vamping it up, what she calls “first date nails,” is from Chanel.

Get The Look: Chanel Madness

Heidi Klum, never one to shy away from trends or over the top looks, selected a black sparkler for her tips.

Get The Look: Dior Black Sequins

Celebrity manicurist, Tom Bachik, gave Beyonce rich brown tips to accentuate her champagne colored gown using Chanel Haute Chocolat.

Were there any looks that stood out to you? Who was your favorite? Or do you just not care about award shows like I do?

    First up, I must say I love your blog and I am a faithful reader for months now despite the fact that I’m all the way across the globe (from Singapore!) So your daily posts are my daily food for the (nail fanatic) soul. (And this is my first comment in months!)

    Anyway. Is it just me or does anyone else think that the reason why so many stars are rocking the red tips to be ‘safe’? I think it would be totally hot if like Anne Hathaway had silver tips for the contrast (but that may be because I’m not a matchy-matchy girl generally.) Nonetheless, I love red so I’m not complaining!

    I’m still loving dark polish, too. I especially like Rumer Willis’ color.
