Margaret Qualley's Black Polka Dot Manicure
Instead of painting all of her nails black, the actress left her index and middle fingers bare and accented them with a simple black dot.
Regina King's Muted Gray Nails
Manicurist Sydney Buck for Frenchies Nails coordinated Regina King's manicure to the beading on her dress. She painted the Academy Award-winning actress' nails with CND's Vinylux in Cityscape, a muted gray shade.
Janelle Monae's Crystal Cuticle Stripes
Janelle Monae was sparkling from head to toe — nails included. Her manicure consisted of a black base with Crystal cuticle stripes.
Margot Robbie's Classic French Manicure
One of 2020's biggest nail art trends, the French manicure, made an appearance on the Oscars red carpet. Manicursit Tom Bachik gave Margot Robbie classic white tips.
Laura Dern's Blush Pink Nails
Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann layered two nail polish shades to create the perfect blush pink manicure for the Best Supporting Actress winner. The exact shades were Brand New Day and Love at First Sight from Lippmann's namesake nail polish line.
Cynthia Erivo's Vincent van Gogh-Inspired Nails
Cynthia Erivo's manicure was a straight up work of art. Manicurist Gina Oh treated her nails like canvases, creating nail art inspired by Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" painting to symbolize Harriet Tubman following the North Star to freedom. She used nine (!!) Christian Louboutin nail collection products for the design.
Zazie Beetz's Modern French Manicure
The Joker star is another celeb that embraced the French manicure on the red carpet. Nail artist Betina Goldstein gave the retro nail design a 2020 twist by creating pointy black tips instead of white. She chose Chanel's Ballerina for the base and Pure Black for the tips.
Billie Eilish's Bejeweled Tips
Singer Billie Eilish's long, rectangle-shaped, black nails with a tiny jewel placed at the center of each tip took home the award for the night's edgiest nails.
