In the run up to the Oscars we are all eagerly anticipating what our favorite celebs will be wearing. Which designers will they choose? How will they have their hair styled? A standout look however is not complete without a good manicure and co-ordination can be key. Julep have given us all the inspiration we need for red carpet worthy nails with their ‘Red Carpet Ready’ collection, were they have chosen recent red carpet looks from our most stylish celebs, on which to base mini collections of nail color.Choose to emulate the hues of Jennifer Lawrence’s dazzling Dior gown at the SAG awards, with their ‘Lovely Lawrence’ collection, that comprises the nail colors of Brandt – an opaque off-black creme and Beatrix – coal black with multidimensional glitter.Opt for the contrasting black and bright pink tones that Taylor Swift chose to brighten things up with in her Carolina Herrera gown at the Golden Globes. The ‘Swift Style’ mini collection includes the glorious nail colors of Drew – a fabulous fuchsia creme and Jet – a jet back creme.Make others green with envy in metallic shades similar to the Lanvin dress that Sandra Bullock wowed in at the SAG awards. ‘Oh So Sandra’ inlcudes the nail colors of Celia and Missy – icy green and titanium metallic hues.Dazzle like Olivia Wilde did in her Marchesa gown at the Golden Globes, with a trio of colors aptly named ‘Wilde Ones’, that include Vivien – a multidimensional gold glitter, Jet – a jet black creme and Sienna – a sophisticated shimmery gold.Standout with bold color not too dissimilar to the look of Amy Adam’s bright blue Antonio Berardi gown and orange-red lips that she sported at the SAG awards. ‘All About Amy’ comprises the bold nail colors of Marjorie – a citrus orange frost and Eden – a bright violet creme.
You can choose how to wear these mini collections. Try a two-tone manicure or a two-tone french manicure. Attempt a more original sideways or reverse french manicure. Be unique with a half moon manicure or vertical ombre nails.
Have fun and experiment to create nail perfection with a celebrity inspired manicure that’s worthy of any red carpet.
