The Best Nails of the 2013 Emmys


We’re so happy for Breaking Bad, Modern Family, and Homeland for all taking home multiple Emmys this year, but our real focus was on the hands of the lovely ladies crossing the red carpet. This year, we saw many short, practical nails and though many stars had neutral polishes, there was a surprising amount of nail art we haven’t seen in the past. A few of our favorites were the tips of Sarah Hyland, Zooey Deschanel (of course) and Connie Britton! See the six colorful manicures that captured our attention.

ElisabethmossMad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss accented her black and white Andrew Gn gown with matching vermillion lips and tips! To go along with the romantic style, she accessorized with vintage Neil Lane jewelry. Thinking along the same line, Amy Poehler gave a pop of color to her look by matching orange-red nails to her earrings alongside a long black dress.

ZoeeydeschanelTo no one’s surprise, Zooey Deschanel arrived at the Emmys with some quirky nail art. After flaunting tuxedo nails, television nails, and film nails at awards shows past, the New Girl lead tried out some black and white geometric tips that were a fun accessory to her dramatic matching baby blue dress, ring, and eyes.

ConniebrittonNashville’s Connie Britton wowed everyone in her mermaid-like velvet Naeem Khan gown. Even more impressive than the fabulous gold detail on her dress was her matching manicure. Celebrity manicurist Beth Fricke created a glittering ombre for the actress using Essie Gold As It Gets over Go Overboard.

SarahhylandWe’ve had our eyes on Sarah Hyland‘s nail art in the past, so we were thrilled when she continued her nail art tradition! Before the Emmys began, the Modern Family actress shared a photo of her art deco digits done by Los Angeles based manicurist Christina Aviles. The pointed version of a moon manicure was an elegant contrast to her emerald dress and jewelry.
