After last year’s stylized manicures, “nails at the Oscars were simple and elegant, with many deep reds, blacks, and pale nudes,” according to Terrance Terry, Essie Educator & Brand Ambassador, Celebrity Manicurist and StyleSeat Advocate.

Rita Ora’s nails looked absolutely perfect with her navy gown. Recreate this look with classic sheer pink nails combined with an edgy almond shape.”

Create almond-shaped nails by filing at a harsh angle on the sides of the nails and then gently rounding the tip with a U-shaped motion.

Step-by-step directions from Terrance Terry to recreate Rita Ora’s manicure:

Apply Essie First Base Base Coat. Paint nails with two coats of Essie Limo-Scene, a very sheer light pink. Complete the look by applying Essie Good To Gunnamed (2)o Top Coat. 

Dakota Johnson rocked with a bold black manicure, which paired perfectly with her stunning red gown.

Step-by-step directions from Terrance Terry to recreate Dakota Johnson’s manicure:

File nails into a square shape by filing across straight across and rounding at corners. Apply Essie First Base Base Coat. Apply two coats of Essie Licorice, a jet black. Finish off with Essie Good To Go Top Coat.
