The best of the best in the music industry were out in full force for the 2024 Grammy Awards. It was a big night in music with Taylor Swift announcing her new album and breaking a record for being the first artist to win "Album of the Year" four times, Miley Cyrus winning her first Grammys and Joni Mitchell performing for the first time on the Grammy's stage. 

Of course, a night as spectacular as this calls for some glam! No look is complete without a stunning set of nails. Here, five celebrity manicurists share the looks they created for the stars at this year's Grammy Awards. 

Lana Del Rey

Manicurist Yoko Sakakura created a coquette nail look for Lana Del Rey that featured square, medium-length nails glazed with a pearl base. Our favorite part is the fun nail embellishments, like pearls, stars, bow charms, rhinestones in the shape of a heart and swan nail art! 

"For her nails, we were inspired by a swan theme," shares Sakakura. "We decided to use a light pink nude shade with a pearl chrome effect. We added some crystals, pearls and pink bows to go with Lana's aesthetic."

Inspired by Halle Bailey's crystal dress for the Grammy's, nail artist Eri Ishizu created a nude manicure featuring a French tip made out of shimmery rhinestones. 

"We wanted to do a sparkle nail art that complimented her look that night, a sheer nude dress filled with crystals," shares Ishizu.

Victoria Monet 

Nails by: Coca Michelle (@cocamichelle

Victoria Monet took home three Grammys for "JAGUAR II," including Best New Artist. She wore a bronze custom Versace gown to the awards show, so naturally it only made sense for nail artist Coca Michelle to create a shimmery bronze manicure to match. 

"Victoria's dress was a beautiful brown," shares Michelle. "I wanted to create a highlight on the nail that would compliment the satin material and color of her dress." 

Michelle used OPI GelColor in “Brown to Earth” and OPI GelColor in “Gliterally Shimmer” from new OPI Your Way Collection to create the look.
