Nails to Sing About: Nail Art From the Grammys

Last night’s Grammy Awards brought out the best in celebrity nails. Nail art played a huge part in the event with the return of E!’s Mani Cam allowing the focus to be on nails and nail art. While celebrities walked the red carpet, they could also strut their fingers down the Mani Cam’s red carpet so we at home could get a full glimpse of what was on their nails. Social media also helped us get an inside glimpse of Grammy-ready nails.

Christina Aviles treated Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard to her first gel manicure with Red Carpet Manicure's VIP Access on all fingers, Perfect High Heels on her ring fingers and thumbs, and Shazaam with gold chunky glitter on her pinky fingers.

We were also excited to see nail art commercials in prime time. This one from COVERGIRL ran during the Grammys, celebrating nail art in all its glory.
