Top Nail Looks from the 2014 Golden Globe Red Carpet

Bespoke designer dresses may get fashion tongues wagging come award season but it’s the hair, makeup and especially, nails that we look forward to the most. (At least for this Beauty Editor!)

Hollywood’s leading ladies did not disappoint at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, sporting sweet and simple manicures to compliment their fabulous frocks: nail looks inspired by the subtle metallic and barely-there nudes on the S/S14 runways.

They’re all beauty winners in our books. See below for the best looks, all by Essie!
