Blake Lively

Blake Lively wore nude nails with her gold and blue feathered gown.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj paired her red nails with a red statement ring to complement the red details of her glam red carpet outfit. "Nicki wanted "strong" nails so I used acrylics to create a classic, square tip and then a deep, dark red gel to add glamor and shine," explains manicurist Eichi Matsunaga.


Madonna's camo nails perfectly matched her camo gown.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling wore nude nails for a classic, understated nail. "I brought a ton of nude and neutral gel options and she chose one that really complimented her beautiful skin tone, and at the same time "popped" against the color of her Prabal gown," says Eichi Matsunaga.

Mandy Moore wore a minimalist geometric look by Eichi Matsunaga. "I used a subtle, neutral gel base color and then hand-painted the irregular geometric outlines in black to give her a deconstructed, patchwork vibe," explains Matsunaga.

Kiko Mizuhara

Eichi Matsunaga created this see-through manicure with a bejeweled border for Kiko Mizuhara. Matsunaga used acrylics to create extensions and then added tiny Swarovski crystals all around the border to add sparkle. "I love that you can see her natural nail peeking through," he says. "It's an untraditional element, so it's a bit of a surprise, like many of Kawakubo's designs."
