If there’s one big color trend from The Oscars 2014, it would be a lack of color, as nudes ruled the day. From barely there lips and tips to flesh-toned gowns, this is one Oscar year when the red carpet didn’t have a lot to compete with. Of course, there were a few standout moments but they were few and far between.

Manicure Rundown – Celebrity Nails from the 2014 Grammys

If there is one night each year I expect celebs to bring it with fun nail color and art, it’s the Grammys. Last night, however, was a bit of a snoozefest.

Don’t get me wrong, there were some gorgeous looks and a sprinkling of nail art but where were the hashtag-worthy styles? There was no Lady Gaga in an egg, no side boob controversy. Outside of Pharrell’s “Dudley Do Right” hat situation and one head-scratching manicure from Lorde, the Grammy red carpet could have belonged to any other award show.

Nail The Look – The Women of Star Trek Into Darkness

In spite of having a boyfriend who is a major Star Trek fan, he even owns Shatner’s CDs, I never got on board. That is, until JJ Abrams became involved with the franchise. I’m a fan of his work from back in the Felicity and Alias days so when he took over the helm, I paid attention. Even though the boyfriend feels the first film “wasn’t a Star Trek movie” (I loved it!), he gave his approval when we saw the second installment, Star Trek Into Darkness.

As with the first film, I couldn’t help but notice the nail polish on the two female leads, Zoe Saldana as Uhura and Alice Eve as Carol Marcus. Fortunately, I was able to get the scoop on their looks and the rest of the women of Star Trek Into Darkness straight from Assistant Make-up Department Head Deborah Patino Rutherford who worked alongside Make-up Department Head David Anderson. So if you plan to dress as your favorite character you can finish off your look with the proper polish.

Celebrity Manicurist Kimmie Kyees Nails Rihanna & Katy Perry at The Grammys

Now that I’m home from New York Fashion Week, I finally had a chance to catch up on the Grammys and check out the fashions and nails.

Being a huge Joan Rivers fan, I actually watched E!’s Fashion Police before the actual show.  Joan cracks me up and I love how Kelly Osborne & Giuliana Rancic lose it almost every time she opens her mouth.  The actually Grammy show was kind of meh but I did love Cee Lo Green & Gwyneth Paltrow singing “F*ck You” and seeing Eminem perform.  I have an out of character crush on Eminem and ended up watching his performance twice.

We’re in the height of award season and of all the shows, The Grammys, tends to be the most noteworthy nail-wise.  We already learned about Lady Gaga’s bright yellow nails from Deborah Lippmann and now Celebrity Manicurist Kimmie Kyees shares her work on Grammy night with clients Katy Perry and Rihanna.
