Oscar Nail Watch 2010 – Amanda Seyfried

I read some comments referring to Amanda Seyfried‘s Armani Prive Oscar gown resembling bubble wrap but I loved it.  She always looks beautiful on the red carpet even if her style choices skew a little older sometimes.  I mean, that’s a LOT of dress.  I can only imagine how much it weighs.

Regardless of how you feel about her dress you’ve got to give her props for wearing a mushroom-y taupe like Chanel  Particuliere, one of spring’s hottest nail shades.  Makeup Artist Monika Blunder used Chanel products to create Amanda’s makeup look so I can only assume that she wore Particuliere on her nails.

Get the look for less with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Commander In Chic and butter London Fash Pack.

What do you think of Amanda’s look for the Oscars?  What nail color would you have chosen for her?

    She looked wonderful. Very different dress, but I like it on her. Nice nails too!

  2. Grace says:

    I do love that color (I’m actually wearing SOPI Metro Chic right now – for the THIRD time, despite piles of unopened bottles of polish at home). I’m not sure it really complements her dress or anything, but at least it’s not a french mani, right?

  3. Deb says:

    The polish is the only thing I like. The dress isn’t the worst thing I’ve seen, but it’s not really all that exciting either.

  4. Sky says:

    The dress is atrocious, but nice nails!

  5. TLM says:

    I feel like I’m always the contrarian somehow. Although I love this shade, given the somewhat stubby shape of the nails and the white dress, I think a pale pink or pale coral would have been more flattering for her.

    I loved her nails & I liked the dress too, but I wonder what it’s made of. I think Jennifer Lopez had a dress made out of the same stuff, but her’s was a disaster, making every curve & swerve look huge on her. I’m almost thinking it was made out of puffy foam packing material, which should only be used for shipping polishes and not making dresses.

    Like the nails but not the dress. I wouldn’t like it on anyone not just her.

    BTW – Who is she? I don’t pay a lot of attention the “stars”.

      I first came to know her in Mean Girls as the not-so-bright Karen but she’s more well known from her role on HBO’s Big Love & the film Mamma Mia. She was also in the horror flop Jennifer’s Body with Megan Fox. I hope that helps

    Hey, does anyone know whether OPI’s “You Don’t Know Jaques” is a dupe for Chanel’s “Particuliere”?

  10. Arrianne says:

    Not a fan of the dress…or the stubby flesh-hanging-over-the-nail nails.

  11. Alllison says:

    100%, love this color but her dress, although it’s Armani Prive (which I normally love), looks like designer bubble wrap and too similar to what Jennifer Lopez wore.

  12. CC says:

    Way too short nails. I would have gone with a lighter color or some really professional fakes. She looks like she chews her nails.
