Golden Globe Awards 2015 Fashion Inspired Nails!
Hi guys! In the past I’ve done some nail art inspired by the designs worn on the red carpet at award shows. You all seem to enjoy it and so do I so I had to do some more nail art inspired by fashion from Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards!
First up, is some nail art inspired by Anna Kendrick’s Monique Lhuillier gown. This was one of my favorite looks of the night, from Anna’s simple makeup, to her elegant jewels to the raspberry and mauve beading among the gorgeous tulle overlay, she looks like perfection. Of course, I had to do a beautiful mani inspired by her gown. I started with a layer of OPI “Glints of Glinda”, then used Zoya “Veronica” and “Madeline” to create tiny lines in a somewhat gradient manner. I then layered another coat of OPI “Glints Of Glinda” on top of that and more teeny lines using Zoya “Veronica” and “Madeline” (kind of like a jelly sandwich!) and then repeated this one more time. My goal was to make it look like the little “beads” in my mani are layered, just like in Anna’s pretty gown.
Next up is a nail art look inspired by Tina Fey’s Antonio Berardi gown. I loved the way the jewels had a gradient effect from the middle going up and the middle going down and then the pops of black and cream satin on the sides was so unique. Plus, who doesn’t love Tina Fey. I mean, if you don’t like Tina Fey, we most definitely can’t be friends. :) For this look, I used Mischo Beauty “Fait Accompli” as the base, KBShimmer “Eclipse” for the triangles on the sides and an unnamed Lynnderella and OPI “Snowflakes In The Air” for the glitter gradient radiating from the center.
The minute I saw Lupita Nyong’o’s Giambattista Valli gown, I knew it would be perfect for a fashion inspired mani. All the layered shades of purple and the detail… YES! It just needed to be done. She just looked so darling! I don’t think many people could pull off that dress but I think she did so well. For my interpretation of her lovely gown, I used Essie “Blanc” as the base then used Zoya “Haven”, “Mira”, “Perrie” and “Kennedy” to make a waterfall effect. At the base of my nails, I did overlapping dots using Zoya “Haven”, “Mira” and “Perrie” to mimic the petals on the bodice of her dress.
Ruth Wilson’s Prada gown wasn’t one I was particularly fond of. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t the best either. But regardless, I couldn’t help but think how cute the design would be as a mani. Naturally, it was added to my to-do list. For this look I used Rescue Beauty Lounge “Become One” as the base and drew lines that mimicked her dress using China Glaze “Capacity To See Beyond” and KBShimmer “Eclipse”.
Lastly, can we take a moment to appreciate Helen Mirren. Does this woman age? I can only aspire to look as amazing as her when I’m 69… YES. 69 YEARS OLD. Actually, I should aspire to look like her now. Va-va-voom! As expected, the amazing Helen Mirren looked gorgeous in her Dolce & Gabbana gown and I loved the detail along the neckline so I figured it would be a pretty amazing nail look. I used OPI “Short-Stop!” as the base with a coat of Deborah Lippmann “Flat Top” to mattify it. I then did dots and teardrops using OPI “Unfrost My Heart” and KBShimmer “Eclipse”. Easy peasy.
There were so many other gowns I loved last night. There are just too many to mention! Honestly, as much as I love doing these nail art posts, I really love the plain gowns too… like Leslie Mann in Kaufmanfranco… I mean… WHOA. And Amy Adams in Versace, SWOON! Oh, the list goes on!
Did you watch the Golden Globes on Sunday night? What were your favorite looks? Did any of your favorite people win awards?
