“To complement Constance Wu’s gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, we used Essie Gel Couture polish in Fairy Tailor," says celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles."This hue gave a subtle, glossy finish to help balance the white and silver textured sparkle of her dress."

“Emma wanted to wear her go-to polish: Essie Ballet Slippers," says celebrity manicurist Emi Kudo. "This was the perfect understated (yet elegant) shade to accompany her uber-chic, gold and black Louis Vuitton menswear look for this evening. Even her hands were adorned with Louis Vuitton jewelry, so Essie’s cult-classic, subtle shade suited her perfectly."

“When our team saw the amazing, bright pink gown by Michael Kors, we knew there was an opportunity to go monochromatic and modern with the makeup and nails," says celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders. "Luckily, Essie has the exact nail polish to match the dress perfectly – Cascade Cool – a bright, cheerful and elegant pink!"

Yara Shahidi

“Yara had such a special look this evening and I wanted to make sure that I helped to enhance that rather than distract," says Emi Kudo. "As such, I used Essie’s Going Steady polish for the base coat, coupled with the brand’s Set in Stones luxeffects, which I used to border the cuticle. This allowed me to mimic the detail of her Fendi dress without distracting from the overall look."

“Lady Gaga’s gorgeous white Dior dress called for a bold contrast. We chose Essie in Berry Naughtya creamy, deep berry," says celebrity manicurist Miho Okowara. "The shade also perfectly complemented her lip and overall beauty look. These subtle, unexpected touches helped to create the fashionable edge she’s so famous for."
