These are the best celebrity Oscars manicures to recreate at your next nail appointment

If you think you’ve fully caught up with everything Oscars 2023, think again. You’ve seen the gowns and you’ve scrolled through the best make-up looks from the night, but have you zoomed in on some of the A-list manicures?

The red (champagne, actually) carpet saw more impressive manis than we’ve witnessed in years, with trend-led nail looks coming from the stylish likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Sabrina Elba and Michelle Yeoh. So, from a “lip gloss” manicure to a Chanel-inspired colour combination, here are the style options we think you should show at your next nail appointment.

Vanessa Hudgens

The High School Musical star opted for a classic vintage black and white Chanel gown for last night’s Oscars and complemented the ensemble with some matching monochrome nails. If you zoom in you’ll be able to see the full intricacy of the manicure, which combines a pearly white base colour with graphic black swirls. 10/10 for outfit and nail pairing, Vanessa.

Sabrina Elba

Sabrina and husband Idris Elba took to the red carpet last night and made all of us just a little envious of the loving gazes they shared. If you can gaze past their loved-up looks, you’ll be able to see Sabrina’s pretty pink “lip gloss” nails.

First popularised by JLo last month, the lip gloss manicure trend is about neat nails in a barely-there colour, and finished with a super-glossy, mirror-like top coat – it’s an elegant, suits-all effect with a hint of “Lancôme Juicy Tubes” nostalgia.

Michelle Yeoh

Michelle picked up the award for Best Actress last night and celebrated by posing 101 different ways with her trophy (quite right, we say). Luckily, her grip on the statue means we get a very good look at her manicure.

Like Sabrina, Michelle played on the barely-there nail trend but added a bit of fun with a glitzy top coat over the white base shade. We love how she’s kept the mani looking sheer instead of a block colour – much more flattering than a Tipp-Ex white.


Singer-songwriter Tems made quite the show-stopping appearance last night wearing a stylish net hood. Her make-up featured 90s-nostalgic frosted blue eyeshadow while her metallic nails added to the glamour of her look.

Make like Tems and keep the base colour of your nails a neutral pink tone and add swirls of silver polish on top to give the look a graphic effect.

Sandra Oh

Grey’s Anatomy star Sandra gave a lesson on how to pair mustard with metallic accessories to make the colour look modern and chic. We love how she complemented her statement silver and diamond necklace with her metallic nails. Extra points go to the star for adding a pop of blue to her manicure to really give a trendy colour clash against the warm tone of the orange gown.
