“To compliment Regina’s gorgeous white dress, we started with CND Winter Glow as the light pink base and a rose gold glitter reverse French trim at the cuticle," says manicurist Rae Getter of Frenchies Modern Nail Care. "This design was a way to keep a classic look to match the dress with a little pop of color and shimmer. We then finished off the look with a clean white-based pink pedicure using CND Cake Pop."

“Constance is stunning in her yellow Versace dress!" says celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles. "We went with Essie’s Spiked With Style to add an element of coolness to her princess-like dress. The result is belle of the ball with some edge."

“Tonight was incredibly special for Lady Gaga – she looked every bit the true star that she is!" says celebrity manicurist Miho Okawara. "To complete her show-stopping look, I used one coat of Essie’s new spring 2019 Stirring Secrets shade, which worked perfectly with her hair and makeup.

“Kristin still has a beautiful post-vacation glow – we decided a nude nail was the perfect complement to her tan skin," says celebrity manicurist Merrick Fisher. "To create the look, I used one coat of Essie’s At the Barre, followed by one coat of Essie’s Sheer Silhouette. The combination created a classic shade that elevated her embellished black dress rather than distract from it."
