In addition to the couture offerings at last night’s Academy Awards, celebrities were lining the carpet in gorgeous, classic manicures. The intricate nail art trend was swapped for tried-and-true elegant shades, and the lacquers worn by Stacy Keibler, Kerry Washington, and Adele were among our favorites. Perhaps as a nod to the night’s festivities, Keibler accented her Naeem Khan gown with Deborah Lippmann’s Glamorous Life ($17; deborahlippmann.com), while Washington and Adele chose timeless nude hues. Washington, who plays Olivia Pope on Scandal, wears a buff-toned lacquer for the show, but appropriately decided to add a touch of shimmer before hitting the red carpet. Click through our gallery to take a closer look at their nails, and see more of the manicures we loved last night!
