The highly anticipated 2022 Emmys aired last night, and the hottest stars of television brought some serious looks to the red carpet.

From vibrant French tips to ultra-minimal manis, here are the nails that stole the show.

Manicurist Tom Bachik has been creating the most enviable manis for the actor, singer, and Rare Beauty founder — and these Emmys nails using four different shades of green from OPI might just be the best yet.

Tokyo-based manicurist Yoko Sakakura went for an understated manicure à la How You Dune! by Aprés Nail (launching tomorrow on their site, ICYWW) for the drop dead gorgeous Squid Games breakout star.

Lizzo’s Ultra-Long Ruby Red Tips

Red nails are in for fall — and Lizzo’s nail artist, Eri Ishizu, seriously nailed this look using OPI’s Red-Veal Your Truth (pun very much intended).

Kerry Washington’s Floral Chrome

Subtle from afar yet stunningly beautiful up close, celeb nail artist Kim Truong created a unique floral chrome work of nail art for the actor.
