Sep 25, 2013


Hollywood starlets at the 2013 Emmys looked stunning in couture gowns and shoes but their manicures were the showstoppers on the red carpet.


Michelle Dockery, a nominee for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series” for her role as Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey, wore a classic sanguine red lacquer called Lady Is A Tramp on her nails. On her toes: Modern Love, a modern classic mauve hue. Her nails were prepped with Ridge Filler Base Coat to create a perfectly smooth canvas, and completed with Gel Lab Top Coat for a high-shine finish.

Emilia Clarke (nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series) as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, is wearing Fashion, a perfect taupe crème shade, on both fingers and toes. Her nails were prepped with Turn Back Time Base Coat, and finished with Gel Lab Top Coat for a beautiful high-shine.

Ridge Filler Base Coat and Turn Back Time Back Time Base Coat, $20 each. Lady Is A Tramp, Modern Love and Fashion, $17 each. Gel Lab Top and Base Coat, $45 for pkg of two.
