With all of the awe-striking gowns to hit the Cannes red carpet over the past two days, it's easy to miss some of the smaller (yet equally important) details that go into ensuring each star is on top of their style game when they climb the steps of La Croisette.
Tom Backik, Cannes Film Festival manicurist, is in charge of ensuring that the L'Oreal Paris muses are kept looking flawless from head to toe before they make their appearance on the red carpet.
The May 11th Cannes opening ceremony saw a plethora of stylish manicures perched on the fingertips of celebs that may have gone unnoticed if you didn't look close enough! Luckily for you, we've put together the 5 coolest manicures and polish shades spotted on L'Oreal muses at Cannes. Consider your spring-summer 2016 nail beauty kit, covered.
5 CANNES-INSPIRED MANICURES
Doutzen Kroes: Dramatic Oxblood
To accompany her simple, yet sultry single slit Brandon Maxwell gown, supermodel Doutzen Kroes opted for a dramatic shade of oxblood that makes the perfect alternative to classic black nail polish. Just when you thought dark polish was reserved for the cold, winter months, L'Oreal style stars go and switch things up again, giving us yet another trend to play around with for spring-summer 2016!
Naomi Watts: Frosty Grey
For Day 2 of the festival, Tom Bachik chose a polish shade that perfectly complimented Naomi's elegant, silver bead-embellished gown. Our favourite part about this look? We love that this delicate take on polish appears to be barely-there, yet works as an easy way to enhance your tan for the summer season!
Julianne Moore: Metallic
For spring-summer 2016, the metallic-everything look is nothing new. From metallic eye lids to metallic brows, this trend shows no signs of slowing down – as proven by Julianne Moore's metallic manicure on the Cannes opening ceremony red carpet. Julianne's soft golden polish shade was just enough to make the golden embellishments on her dress pop, yet not too much as to draw attention away from her gown.
Kristina Bazan: Gothic Glam
Cannes Film Festival newcomer Kristina Bazan caught our eye with her dramatic, gothic-glam look that spread from her eyelids all the way down to her finger tips for her first appearance on the red carpet. The blogger and L'Oreal muse complimented her black Elie Saab gown and smoky cat eye with a dark manicure that added to her edgy bad-girl appeal. We can't wait to darken things up for spring-summer 2016!
Eva Longoria: Classic Red
For her second Cannes red carpet debut, L'Oreal muse Eva Longoria stepped out wearing a strapless, black beaded gown that moulded perfectly to her body. The actress completed her femme fatale look with a classic red manicure that stood out against her dark dress.
