SAG Awards Nail Art – Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab

Award shows are my idea of sports. I would much rather watch the red carpet action than the Cavs play, even with LeBron back in town. Between the E! red carpet coverage, Fashion Police recaps and the shows themselves, my DVR is a flurry of activity.

This past Sunday, the actor-centric SAG Awards aired and, per usual, I was live-tweeting the red carpetwaiting for my favorite film and tv show casts to win, and they did. Yay Birdman!

When Lupita Nyong’o stepped out on the carpet in this floral Elie Saab, I swear I could hear an actual gasp on Twitter. Her gorgeous gown stuck in my head and I just had to recreate it as nail art. And it just so happens that the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection was perfect for the task.

Golden Globes 2015 Nail Art – Kate Hudson in Versace

The Golden Globes is always my favorite award show of the season. The combination of television and film stars with free flowing booze usually results in a very fun night. Last night’s show fell a little flat but the red carpet was full of excitement. From Kiera Knightly’s gown that made me question what is going on at Chanel to Julieanne Moore’s liquid metallic ombre (with feathers!) it was a feast for the fashion eye.

While metallics were clearly a trend, what I really loved is a look that’s also big in nails, cutouts or negative space. Rosamund Pike, Emily Blunt and Jane Fonda all worked the trend but it was Kate Hudson that caused me to gasp in this white and silver Versace design. It’s nail art as fashion and the inspiration for my Golden Globes Negative Space Nails.
