Ellie Kemper, Ashley Madekwe, Sophia Bush, and Rihanna all matched their manicures to their dresses, a look that isn’t overkill if it’s done with subtlety. Bush went trendy in tangerine from head to toe, while Kemper, Madekwe, and Rihanna pulled just one color from their dresses to mirror on their nails. When trying this, pick a color that is a shade darker than your outfit—the deeper hue adds contrast and breaks up the effect. If you’re feeling adventurous, switch up your finishes like Rihanna, who used a shine-free suede effect on the black portions of her nails.
