The Emmy Awards took place in glamourous California on Sunday evening and as the drama built onstage the red carpet looks were even more dramatic with stunning gowns by all the designers you love and the new fall trend ” lacquered nails as accessories” created by Essie.
I can’t rave enough about Mad Men’s star Jessica Pare teal blue dress Inspiration. I also wish I could be an actress and sing “Zou Bisou Bisou to John Hamm, but that is another column. Jessica’s nail accessory look was created with the Brooch The Subject to compliment her dress and create a classic Hollywood look worthy of a future icon.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus shimmered in a structured silver Monique Lhullier gown and to accent her look the perfect flush of pale pink Blushing Bride was chosen to create a uniform look between fashion and beauty.
Don’t forget “lacquered nails as accessories” have ruled the runways at New York Fashion Week as seen at Ruffian and Zang Toi and the trend actually began with the Ruffian Moon Manicure.
Christina Hendricks rocked the red carpet with her signature curves and dark and edgy nails that refused to fade into her black dress designed by Christian Siriano. To achieve this look Stylenomics, a rich dark green hue, was layered with Skirting the Issue, a Wine, Burgundy, Purple mix, to get a fresh but glamorous look that popped against her emerald accessories.
Connie Britton ornate “Ottoman Empire” inspired peacock blue silk velvet strapless gown from designer Naeem Khan stood out against a glam take on the French tip. To get this look start with Go Overboard all over nails, then apply Lux Effects in As Gold As It Gets on the tips, fading down onto the base of the nail.
Anna Faris shined in a Greecian Inspired Sunny Yellow Monique Lhullier gown so in this fashion case her manicure and pedicure were pared down so they wouldn’t distract from her look; Sandy Beach, a sheer and natural nude, was used for a polished look.
These colors are so beautiful I feel like adding them all to my collection and I will begin with the Go Overboard and As Gold As it Gets to create my own unique twist on a French Manicure.
