What styles will shine on the Red Carpet?

Excited for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards this weekend? This big event always promises a glitzy, awe-inspiring time for the TV and movie industries…but it's also a place filled with mesmerizing manicures! According to Nail Expert and Custom Nail Solutions President Katie Saxton, this year’s red carpet nail fashions are sure to amaze!
        
Here’s a look at the latest trends that are sure to appear on fingertips at the event:
 
Variations of Red: From classic red to burgundy, to deep ruby hues and garnet, the color red is going to be huge on the red carpet.  This is an eye-catching polish hue that is sure to get the red carpet cameras’ attention!
 
Direct Dress Match: Matching your polish to your dress color is always a popular choice for awards shows, and this holds true for the Golden Globes. Many celebrities will find a polish that matches their dress color to a tee, and they will adorn their nails with either a solid coat of the polish or a French mani featuring the color as the tip.
 
Plays On White: White nail polish is one of 2014’s top nail trends, and many A-listers will choose a variation of white for their Golden Globes manicure. From white designs on light gray polish to plain solid white manis, this nail design choice will be seen all over this year’s red carpet.
 
Lipstick Synchronization: Lipstick choice is typically what brings the whole red carpet look together, so celebrities will choose to match their polish to their lip shade for a synchronized effect. This instantly adds glamour and sophistication to the wearer!
 
Bejeweled Nail Art: From rhinestones to sequins and nail gems, bejeweled nail art will be all the rage at this year’s Golden Globe Awards. This is an eye-catching and fun look that can match a multitude of dress styles and colors.
 
Complete Dress Contrast: Rather than pick a polish that exactly matches the dress color, many stars will choose a polish that is a complete contrast. For example, celebrities with light blue dresses might choose a dark red polish and stars wearing white dresses might choose black or charcoal polish hues.
 
Metallic Polishes: From shimmery silver and shiny gold, to glittery rose gold and granite, metallic polishes will pop up on the hands of many 2014 Golden Globe nominees.
 
Sophisticated Silk Nails: At this year’s Golden Globes, stars will also opt to flaunt their own nails by adorning them with wraps of silk, linen, or fiberglass that is cut to a desired nail’s shape and then glued to the nail plate. Not only is this look fashionable, it also enhances the natural nail and strengthens the tip!
 
Clutch Coordination:  Many stars will match their nail polish hue to their clutch instead of their dress. This will be a major go-to look, as it creates a fashionable, streamlined effect that adds elegance to the wearer.
 
Round Nails: Almond-shaped nails were one of Fall 2013's breakout trends, and this look will continue to reign at this year's Golden Globe Awards. Many celebrities will also choose to have shorter, rounded tips rather than just the longer almond shape.
