Golden Globe Nail Watch – Kate Hudson

kate-hudson-golden-globes-red-nails Kate Hudson surprised me on the Golden Globes red carpet.  Known for her boho chic style, this structured Marchesa gown threw me off guard and I seriously don’t know HOW she made it through the night in those shoes.  I feel wobbly just looking at them.

To contrast the bright white hue of her dress, Celebrity Manicurist Deboarah Lippmann chose a cherry red creme for her nails.  See which shade she used on Kate and check out my swatch of the nail polish after the jump!

Golden Globes Nail Watch – Gabourey Sidibe

Gabourey Sidibe 67th Golden Globes Silver Nails I have yet to see Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire but from what I hear, Golden Globe Nominee Gabourey Sidibe, gives an amazing performance.  Considering how much the Hollywood Foreign Press tends to favor the new kid on the block, I was actually amazed that she didn’t take home a golden statuette last night.

In the sea of purple, black and gold dresses on the red carpet last night, Gabourey really stood out in her emerald green gown.  Though what caught my attention was the bit of bling on her tips that matched her sparkly clutch.  It’s a party after all, why not add some glitzed out glamour?

Celebrity Manicurist Kimmie Kyees was on hand to tend to Gabby’s manicure and she used a layering combo for maximum bling.  At first glance I thought she was wearing silver chrome Minx but instead Kimmie layered the glittery Essie Silver Bullions over metallic silver Essie Loophole.


Both Essie Loophole and Silver Bullions are available online at and in salons including national chains Regis, ULTA and Trade Secret.

What do you think of Gabourey’s nail look? What would you have paired with that gorgeous shade of green?

Golden Globes Nail Watch – Sandra Bullock

sandra-bullock-67th-golden-globes-chanel This really is Sandra Bullock‘s year.  Not only was she a double nominee at tonight’s Golden Globes but she WON for The Blind Side.  I have yet to catch the film but just the trailer makes me tear up.  I may have to wait for it to hit DVD so I can ball like a fool in the privacy of my own home.

Most people probably noticed her vibrant purple gown but I narrowed right in on her greige putty-ish tips.  I immediately thought Chanel Particulière. Come to find out Angela Levin did Sandra’s makeup using Chanel products. I don’t have confirmation on the exact nail color but if I was a betting woman, I’d put my money on Particulière. Here’s the scoop on the rest of Sandra’s look from Angela:

“When I walked into Sandra’s room, I saw that she was in an incredibly relaxed, happy and free spirited mood. I wanted her makeup to reflect her serene state of mind!”

“I prepped Sandra’s skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Cream. Her eyes were a mixture of CHANEL shadowsSilky Eyeshadow Duo in Orient-Express, and Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Trace. I then lined the eyes with CHANEL Long Lasting Eyeliner in Violine, a deep, soft purple shade. On her cheeks, I used CHANEL Tweed Blush Duo in Tweed Rose.   Finally, on her lips she wore CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Beige Felin.

What do you think of Sandra’s look? Do you agree with my Particulière prediction? If not, what’s your guess?

Golden Globes Nail Watch – Marion Cotillard

Celebrity Manicurist Deborah Lippmann was on hand to tend to Marion’s nails and I’ve got the scoop on her vampy nail look.  See close up shots of her manicure and find out what shade she wore after the jump!

Celebrity Nail Watch – Who Embraced the Green Nail Trend?

By on September 6, 2009
in Barielle, Celebrity Nail Watch, Green with 7 Comments
As a girl who loves her some green polish, I’m uber excited that the color is becoming so prominent this season. Yes, we’ve seen some great greens in the past few years but at long last it feels like the rest of the non-nail fanatic world is ready to embrace it.

I know it’s not right but it’s as though no nail trend is really a “trend” until we see at least one celeb rocking it. That’s why I’ve been furiously scanning red carpet events looking for a fun green nail and I FINALLY found it. Can you guess who dared to be different wearing not only a bright mossy hue but also a nail ring? Find out after the jump!

Did any of you say 90210 starlet Annalynne McCord? Who the Fug Girls lovingly refer to as Drunkface. Girl went over the top and THEN some. Between the fingerless lace glove, the banana yellow clutch and wifebeater/corset contraption on her midsection, the nails seem pretty tame. Is this hipster dominatrix chic?

I can’t give her props for the wardrobe choice but the nails get an A+ from me. Why she had to spoil it with that ring, I haven’t the faintest.

Get Annalynne’s nail look at home with Barielle Polished Princess from the All Lacquered Up collection.

I hope you’re all enjoying your holiday weekend. Today is our annual block party. What’s on your schedule for the day?

Peace, Love & Polish, Michelle
