Nail Colour Trends

Nothing finishes off an outfit like a gorgeous manicure. And don’t the stars know it! At this year’s Oscars celebrities went for a toned down approach with many opting for the naked nude look.

Taupe, soft pink, pale grey and creamy mushroom were popular colours. Amanda Seyfreid, Anna Kendrick, Charlize Theron, Elizabeth Banks, Diane Kruger and Queen Latifah all painted their nails in the neutral brush.

OPI's Isn’t That Precious was a popular shade at the last minute Oscar pampering tent. You can grab yourself a bottle from David Jones for around $20.

Another hot trend at the Oscars was “polish blending”, where different lacquer shades are layered over one another. Demi Moore's colour was created with a mixture of OPI Over the Taupe and OPI Barefoot in Barcelona. SVU’s Mariska Hargitary opted for a blend of OPI Tickle My France-y with OPI Mod Hatter.

There were some stars who put their nails centre stage and chose an intense colour. Miley Cyrus used OPI's deep red Manicurist of Seville, while other celebrities went for dark plum, chocolate brown and dark green.
