There is nothing simple or understated about awards season. Between the custom couture gowns and £500 facials with elite aestheticians, celebrities tend to spare no expense when they’re preparing to take home a gold trophy. Last night’s Emmy Awards was no exception, with one caveat: the manicures.
While Billy Porter’s fingertips were coated in crystal decals that probably cost more than your rent, other stars, including Mandy Moore and Laverne Cox, opted for £7.99 Essie nail polish to top off their looks.
Check out how celebrities put their own unique twist on the high street staple at the Emmys — and then shop the exact shades they wore for the big night, ahead.
