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

marion-cotillard-67th-golden-globes-nail-polish Nine star Marion Cotillard stunned at the 67th Annual Golden Globes wearing a rich green Dior gown.  Considering that a lot of the celebs played it safe on the red carpet, Marion drew my eye the second she stepped on the carpet.

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!

The Worst Nails of the Golden Globes

I can’t just kiss celeb butt, I need to address what I thought were polish mistakes as well. This is the stuff you’ll never hear Joan Rivers talk about. She can hardly remember the star’s names, let alone what’s on their nails.

Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos. I don’t know what she was thinking when she agreed to wear this hideous white polish. I know that white and pale colors are “in” for spring but it’s just not working for me.

Ellen Pompeo of Grey’s Anatomy. I thought she looked stunning. Her dress was unique and it kept her from looking like a bean pole but the nail color choice was completely wrong. That dirty nude shade made her hands look like they belonged on a corpse. Naked tips would have been better than that monstrosity.

The ladies of Grey’s Anatomy need some serious polish intervention. I think Katherine Heigel is one of the most beautiful women on television and at the 2006 Emmy’s she was a goddess on the red carpet. But, the combo of dark eyes, dark dress and dark nails was just too much for me.

She should have been the fashion forward gal sporting white polish.

As much of a fashion plate as Chloe Sevigny of Big Love is, I expected more from her than naked toes in clodhoppers.

Chloe find Reese and become friends. Share pedi secrets and report back with some color on your toes.

Melora Hardin

The beauty from The Office was a vision in white and her dark nails and smokey eyes were a perfect contrast.
