Met Ball Nail Mania!

The 2010 Met Ball (Costume Institute Gala) was held on Monday May 3, and the red carpet was filled with hot celebs- but what we want to talk about is the nails! Celebrity and Editorial Manicurist Lisa Logan worked with many of the evenings shining stars who spent the night in lovely shades of Zoya (we can only say she was workin' it) - way to go Lisa!

First up is the ladies who chose red- Alexa Chung and Gwen Stefani.

Alexa went with a deeper berry red similar to Zoya Riley or Zoya Alix while Gwen chose a classic red that compares to Zoya Gia or Zoya Dominique. Reds are always in style and it is a color choice that compliments almost every outfit. Gwen wore a dress by her own label, L.A.M.B. Alexa wore Phillip Lim.

Next we have those who chose to go dark- Emmy Rossum and Kristen Stewart.

Kristen and Emmy both had black manis that could easily be recreated with Zoya Raven, but if you feel like switching things up to give it a bit more edge you could try a matte nail using Zoya Dovima. Black nails are not huge right now so you might choose to go another route with a dark plum like Zoya Norra.  Emmy wore a Kenneth Cole gown.
Now we have the ladies who choose to be a bit more daring- Chanel Iman and Zoe Kravitz.

  Zoe's nails were a dark coppery red that looks a lot like Zoya Colbie.

Chanel was sporting that foil finish one could copy by using Zoya Trixie or Zoya Richelle. Minx nails have been hot for a long time now, and using the two above options is an excellent way to get the Minx look without actually getting Minx. Zoe wore a Alexander Wang gown ( who she is picture with along with MIA)  and Chanel wore Michael Kors.

Lastly we have Toes! Yes Toes!- Elizabeth Banks showed off her pedi in her suede platforms.

Elizabeth's toes were painted a playful pink similar to Zoya Maya or Zoya Elodie, which was a nice contrast to her all black get up. Elizabeth wore all Gucci.
