grammys-2014-celebrity-manicures-nails-nail-art
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.

Katy Perry’s Bejeweled Holo Madness at the Kid’s Choice Awards

katy perry holographic bejeweled nails kimmie kyees milani nickelodeon kids choice awards When Katy Perry TwitPic’d her nails late night on Saturday, I knew Celebrity Manicurist Kimmie Kyees had to be the brains behind this look.  Sure enough, I check my inbox to find that Kimmie had done Katy’s nails for the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards.

For Katy’s nails, Kimmie created custom tips using Milani Hi-Res from the 3D Holographic collection.  She randomly placed square, round and heart shaped nail gems in a rainbow of colors for a fun and funky look.  One look at Katy’s dress and you can see how the stones played into the overall look.  You can never accuse Katy of being afraid to “go there” with her look.

What do you think of Katy’s nails? Would you ever wear this in real life? Where?

Oscar Nail Watch 2010 – Deborah Ann Woll

I wasn’t quite sure why True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll was at the Oscars but I couldn’t help but get excited over her grayed purple nails.  It complimented her gown well though I’m not sure it worked with her hair and lip color.  It’s almost like we’re seeing two different looks from the head up and head down.
