While celebs like Priyanka Chopra, Robin Wright and Nicole Kidman slayed the wardrobe and beauty category, there was another set of stars that won our hearts when it came to the nails! From Mandy Moore to Viola Davis and Evan Rachel Wood, find out the shades that set them apart on the Red Carpet!


Evan Rachel Wood

While this beauty stunned in a Jeremy Scott all-white pantsuit, the Westworld lead made quite the power play with a slicked back updo and a Gel Couture Mani in “Fairy Tailor” to match.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis knows how to rock a bold color on the Red Carpet and this year she pairs her daring orange dress with an elegant upstyle and a fierce lip. On her nails, she wore one of our favorite shades – Bordeaux by essie, a deep burgundy reminiscent of wine country.

Debra Messing

She proved once again that red really is her color. With her striking signature hair color alongside her burgundy dress, she rocked a Wrapped In Rubies manicure with a stellar timepiece to match.

Allison B Janning

Most of us know her for her role in 10 Things I Hate About You, The West Wing, Juno or her latest T.V. Show, Mom – and this year Janning showed off her elegance and grace in a gorgeous floral overlay Tony Ward dress complete with a mani in essie’s Topless & Barefoot.

Mandy Moore

There has been so much love for Mandy Moore lately, from her stellar role in This Is Us to her recent engagement to musician Taylor Goldsmith – this news meant that her nails needed to be on point! To compliment her dainty new ring, Moore paired the look with a half-moon manicure in essie’s Ballet Slippers and Muchi Muchi for a style that is perfectly pink!
