Last night was so much fun, you guys! Not only did the Golden Globes air, my fave award show of the season, but I co-hosted the very first #NailGlossip twitter chat with Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and Jen from The PolishAholic. It was so great dishing on the award show looks with fellow nail fanatics. The hour flew by and I can’t wait for the next one, January 26th (Grammy night).

During the chat, @NailedKit asked if any dresses inspired us to create nail art so I threw down the challenge that we should all try our hand at some Golden Globes inspired designs. I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t take my eyes of Mila Kunis. I’ve never seen her have a bad red carpet moment and I knew her sequin and chiffon Gucci Premiére gown would look fantastic as nail art.

jeanne-tripplehorn-ginnifer-goodwin-67th-golden-globes-nails Big Love “sister wives” Ginnifer Goodwin and Jeanne Tripplehorn braved the rain-soaked Golden Globes carpet together looking, quite frankly, like a mother-daughter duo.  Jeanne’s matronly dress does no justice to her beauty though she does score points in the nail department for donning a chic, browned-grey nail.As mentioned on E!’s Live From The Red Carpet, the co-stars spent their pre-show time together as well, with pampering manis & pedis at Recess Organic Nail Spa in LA accompanied by Ginnifer’s mom.  Get the full scoop on their nail polish choices and see my color swatches after the jump!

Golden Globes Nail Watch – Vera Farmiga

vera-farmiga-67th-golden-globes-jenna-hipp If you haven’t seen Up in the Air yet add it to your to-do list ASAP. Not to take anything away from George Clooney but Golden Globe nominees Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga are so brilliant in it.  Total scene stealers.  Kind of like how Anna Kendrick stole the show when she sang “The Ladies Who Lunch” in Camp.

So when I saw on Twitter that Celebrity Manicurist Jenna Hipp worked with Vera on her nail look, I had to get the scoop.

According to Jenna, “Working with Vera is always a pleasure…it reminds me of when I was a little girl watching my big sister get ready for a big date. Though she’s naturally glamorous and sophisticated, her demeanor is also very soothing.”

“For shape, I narrowed the sides a bit to elongate her fingers and rounded the corners ever so slightly with a glass file to avoid snagging her dress.”

“For color, I used Orly’s Angel Face topped with Deja-Vu. Orly’s Bonder Basecoat and Sec n Dry Topcoat.”

Jenna also spilled some amazing makeup news.  Tina Turnbow created Vera’s look using “the richest mix of brown eyeshadows I’ve ever seen.” Those shadows will be part of the palette Tina helped create for eco-friendly brand Tarte Cosmetics.

How do you feel about Vera’s look?  Do you agree with her natural nail look or would you spice it up with color?

Mannequin Hands at the Golden Globes

“Mannequin Hands” made their way down the Golden Globes red carpet on the tips of Fergie and Mariah Carey last night.  What a fun coincidence that they are both singers in nominated films rocking the flesh toned polish.  Of course you need to look past Mariah’s in-your-face cleavage to even notice her nails but perhaps that why she chose such a subdued shade.

Those of you who have seen Nine, is there any angle I can sell the boyfriend on to get him to see it with me or is this strictly a take-your-girlfriends type of flick?



What do you think of their mannequin hands? Are you feeling Fergie’s extreme oval shape?  What colors would you guess they’re wearing?

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!
