These were the best nails spotted at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet.
Celeb tech Steph Stone used Essie in Blanc and Cascade Cool on actress Millie Bobby Brown to create linear nail art.
Celeb tech Michelle Saunders used Essie in Mademoiselle on actress Mandy Moore. “Mandy’s shimmery, cobalt blue gown called for an elegant, feminine nail. Essie’s mademoiselle, a classic sheer pink, was the ideal choice. We topped it off with Speed.Setter top coat for a high shine finish,” Saunders says.
Saunders also used Essie Treat Love & Color in Daytime Dreamer for actress Saoirse Ronan. “Essie’s Daytime Dreamer, a newly released shade from the Treat Love & Color line, was the ultimate match for Saoirse’s Louis Vuitton dress. The lilac blossom hue made for a fresh, monochromatic look,” Saunders says.
A close up picture for #YaraShahidi’s #SAGawards black tuxedo nails. We used “Licorice” and “gel shutter” to create the shiny base first, then put a strip of masking tape across the nail, then brushed “matte about you” from @essiepolish over it. The idea came out from the stylish @chocolatemommyluv, then Yara and I completed the design together. #corroboration 💪🏽😊🖤✨ #teamYara #manicure #nails #nailsofinstagram #EmiKudo #nailart #EssieLove
Actress Yara Shahidi wore Essie in Licorice, applied by celebrity manicurist Emi Kudo. “Pairing impeccably with her custom Ralph Lauren pant suit, Yara chose a bold, matte nail. We started with two coats of Essie’s Licorice, a creamy jet black, and finished with Matte About You top coat for an added modern edge,” Kudo says.
The face of the show today, the gorgeous #KristenBell hit the red carpet of SAG awards. She was glowing from inside ✨✨✨when I left there this morning from the backstage of the show. 💖💖💖✨✨✨ #SAGawards Styling: @nicolechavezstyle Hair: @jennychohair Makeup : @simonesiegl And #nails #manicure done by me #EmiKudo for using “Skinny Dip” from @essiepolish 💅💕💅💕
Kudo also painted the nails of actress Kristen Bell. “Essie’s skinny dip, a light peachy pink from the wild nudes collection, was the perfect shade to complement Kristen’s fair skin tone as well as her embellished J. Mendel ball gown,” Kudo says.
Actress Oliva Munn wore intricate nail art by celebrity manicurist Shigeko Taylor. “Olivia wanted her nails to play off her sparkling, Oscar de la Renta dress. We started with two coats of a classic, opaque black shade, Essie’s Licorice. Then, we created a variety of simple designs, mixing loose silver glitter with Essie’s Gel.Setter top coat to mimic the intricate, sequin details of her dress,” she says.
Tom Bachik used a single coat of OPI Infinite Shine Samoan Sand and Diborah Lippmann Bring on the Bling on actress Margot Robbie.
