Two-time nominee Elle King wore a shimmering base color in Red Carpet Manicure Dripping in Luxury to match her new engagement ring. Celeb manicurist Emi Kudo then upgraded the diamond manicure by adding a pair of stiletto press-on nails (already shaped with a negative space) over the glitter polish. Both of King’s pinky nails were embellished with black studs to complete the edgy look.

Celeb manicurist Brittni Rae used a glass nail file to give Demi Lovato a soft oval shape and used Red Carpet Manicure Black Stretch Limo gel-polish for a manicure that complimented the performer’s red carpet ensemble.

To match Lovato’s wardrobe change, Rae then painted the nails in Red Carpet Manicure White Hot nail polish and very carefully painted half circles using Black Stretch Limo nail polish, leaving a white peekaboo line in the middle of the nail.
