Sunday evening’s Golden Globes red carpet might’ve been littered with glittering gowns and some gut-wrenchingly pretty beauty looks, but nothing gets past us here at Allure — and that includes each and every celeb’s perfectly manicured hands. Our eyes constantly drifted downward to catch the reflective polishes and detailed nail art at every chance just in case there’s a new nail trend bubbling underneath the surface.
The verdict? Short and simple nails have never been so en vogue. Take it from Margot Robbie’s hard-candy pink polish, Scarlett Johansson’s delicate French tips, or even Joey King’s minimal and geometric nail design: the secret to a red-carpet-ready manicure is not the length of the nails themselves. It’s how you wear it. See all of our favorite nail looks from the 2020 Golden Globes below, and be sure to have your local manicurist on speed dial.
