Get The Nail Look – January Jones at the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards

January Jones dark nails at the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards 2010 Let me start by saying that I love January Jones playing the least likely candidate for mother-of-the-year on Mad Men and I think she’s a beautiful woman BUT what was going on with her dress last night at the Emmys? I’m not generally a fan of the short in the front, long in the back look but when you add in the fish scale pattern it looks a little too mermaid-esque for my taste.  Regardless, her nails were on point!

Celebrity Manicurist Deborah Lippmann worked with January to give her a dark, dramatic manicure.  She shaped January’s nails into elongated ovals, Deb’s favorite shape, and painted them a deep plum hue.

deborah-lippmann-dark-side-of-the-moon Deb’s color of choice, Dark Side of the Moon from her eponymous line of nail polish.

What do you think of January’s look from the Emmys? Do you agree with her nail color selection?

Deborah Lippmann Dark Side of the Moon retails for $16/ea and can be purchased online at, and

    You’re so right! The dress is hideous!! But the nails was perfect;o)

  2. Rory says:

    Hmmm…not sure how I feel about that color combination. In my opinion, a bright contrasting color or a complimentary would have worked better.

    How does this colour compare to William Tell Me About Opi? Can you think about a dupe/similar colour in the Opi range?

    Thank you!

    i’m diggin that shape right now. i think i’m going to grow mine out and do the pointy oval thing. it’s very dita von teese, yeah?

      I agree, it is very Dita-esque. I personally can’t grow mine that long. They would break, split or peel. Plus I’m so accustomed to my short nails that I probably wouldn’t be able to function. However, if you are going to grow them long, I do prefer the oval to the square or pointy tips.

    The dress? It’s a big ‘ol mess!! I told the hubs about it and he said “but, she’s hot, so it cancels out”. Sorry. Not this time. What’s up with the cones? LOL ANYway. The nails look good. I love the vampy dark with the bright in-your-face blue!

  6. Kate P. says:

    Yuck…Not a fan of the dress. I agree with Rory – this isn’t the right polish color for that dress.

    Also, I am SO SICK of hearing about how long oval-shaped nails are the new trend. It’s so unflattering unless you have super long, thin fingers! Even here, it makes JJ’s fingers look sausagey. Yuck.

    For some reason I think that stars now a days doesnt care about how they look when they are on big events.. they just choose something that sticks out to make sure that they are standing out and that everyone sees them… as long as people see them they are happy :)
    There are only a few that really think about what they wear :)

    The nailpolish is really beautiful tho :D

  8. Elise says:

    I’d love the dress if it weren’t shorter on the front but like this it’s just… not working out at all. I do love the nails though :)

  9. Lauren says:

    The dress is awful, but I loooove the color of it. And I think DSotM goes really well since she wore black shoes. I’m still bothered by this oval shape, even though hers aren’t as long as some other celebs who rock the look. They’re too pointy. Her pinky looks really weird. It’s too bad she wore that dress, because she is so stunning and usually looks perfect.

  10. GwenSA says:

    She looks like she’s going to tip over. Not quite sure what look she was going for. I like her nails, though.

  11. Karen (Not a Waitress) says:

    It’s a mullet, it’s a dress, it’s a mullet, it’s dress…..
    January Jones has THE coolest name ever.

  12. Alllison says:

    so whatever show I was watching, no one liked this dress, but I freaking love it!

  13. breeoxd says:

    I kinda like the dress- but hatin the nail combo. Those oval nails looks so pretentious and fake. I have to say the best comment on the blog goes to karen-”it’s a mullet, it’s a dress….” LOVE it lol.

  14. Annelie Sunshine says:

    i love the color combination,the nail shape is most flattering for small nail beds,i think its refreshing to see something outta the norm

  15. I absolutely loved the new Fall/Winter colors from M.A.C….Earthly Harmony, Ming Blue, Concubine, Rain Flower, etc….but I can’t believe the horrible results. I’ve used the Ming Blue and the Earthly Harmony so far. Bottom coat, two coats of color, and top coat. Within an hour, it is chipped to the point of embarassment. At 13.00 a bottle, it’s all going back and I’ll stick to the 3.00 and less versions by OPI and Revlon, yes, Revlon. Love their color, “Steel Her Heart” !
