The Oscars & OPI

OpenerThe red carpet at the 84th Academy Awards was full of glitter and glam…and, perhaps unsurprisingly, subtle nail styles.

“This year, it was all about letting the dresses speak for themselves,” says celebrity nail artist Beth Fricke. Therefore, the nails maintained a more taupe and neutral front. “We have played with color and different nails throughout the Award Show season, but for the Oscars it’s been all about classic and beautiful, Old Hollywood glam.”

The go-to choice for cleanly manicured nails this Oscar night appeared to be Samoan Sand from OPI Products.

Stacy Keibler added to her already perfect accessory (George Clooney—swoon) with the creamy coffee-colored lacquer.


And Fricke herself prepped the nails of Amy Adams from The Muppets for her arrival at the Vanity Fair party with the same OPI polish from the Soft Shades Collection.
