Nails are back. That is, if the celebrities on the 2020 Grammy Awards red carpet have any say at all. Though nail art never really went anywhere, it hasn’t been as big of a trend as it was in the early 2010s. But Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Rosalía all wore ultra-long and bold nail designs to celebrate music’s biggest night. Take a closer look at their stunning designs below—then get ready to call your manicurist.
Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Rosalía all wore ultra-bold manicures.
The “Bad Guy” singer wore Gucci from head to toe to nail. She wore a black suit bedazzled with the Gucci logo in green on the red carpet, complete with green Gucci logos painted on extra-long, square-shaped nails. The green shades in her outfit and on her nails mimicked the signature electric-green roots in her hair.
“Since I was 16, I used to love nail art, and it just got crazier and crazier,” said Rosalía on the E! red-carpet preshow. The singer wore long, tapered nails covered in chunks of silvery rhinestones. The showstopping claws could be seen as she held up her Grammy for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album for “El Mal Querer” during the pre-telecast show.
Rosalía kicked off the trend this afternoon while accepting her Grammy for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative album at the pre-telecast show in Los Angeles. The long silver diamond-encrusted nails perfectly complement the huge rock on her finger.
Eight Grammy nominations in one night calls for one major custom manicure. Wearing a stunning strapless white Versace gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and a fluffy shawl, Lizzo looked like a classic Hollywood bombshell. Marko Monroe, the singer’s stylist, told WWD‘s Booth Moore that the look was inspired by the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Madonna, and Whitney Houston. But Lizzo’s electric personality came out in her nails: painted white, to match her dress, with a number eight painted in metallic glitter down the center of each nail, and teardrop stones hanging from the pointy tips.
Billy Porter Invents the Color Silver
Last but not least, the one and only Billy Porter got in on the red carpet trend. The superstar arrived in style wearing the only blue eyeshadow that matters and a bedazzled hat made for icons only. His silver nails were a natural extension to the rest of his look.
