Nail Art Goes Punk for Met Gala

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the annual site of fashion’s biggest night of the year: the Costume Institute Gala. This year’s theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture. As celebrities and designers walked the red carpet adorned in studs and safety pins, we were happy to see that their nail art reflected the theme as well. Here’s a look at the nail art that went viral:

Sienna Miller’s skull encrusted pedicure and spiked manicure rocked Deborah Lippmann’s Fade to Black.

Olivia Wilde paired Fade to Black with Deborah Lippmann’s Amazing Grace for a punk rock French manicure.

Cara Delevingne also chose Fade to Black with a silver skull and cone stud.

 Nichole Richie’s gold and red nail art won our hearts.

 Blake Lively wore black and white jeweled nail art.

Rosie Huntington Whitely went for a black to white gradient.


Manicurist Katie Jane Hughes and Emmy Rossum used Butter London and lace from her dress to create this blinged out mani.
