This '60s Nail Art Design From The Critics' Choice Awards Is So Cool

Nail art won the evening.

Nail looks from the Critics' Choice Awards.

There's always plenty to discuss the day after an awards show — dresses, jokes, elaborate amounts of diamonds — but if you're anything like TZR, you're still thinking about the nail looks from the Critics' Choice Awards. While simple pink- and red-toned manicures turned out to be a major trend of the 2021 Golden Globes, the celebrity-studded evening on March 7 took a different turn, favoring unique and one-of-a-kind looks. Attendees and nominees complemented stunning gowns and designer ensembles with cutting-edge nail art, on-trend shades, and an expert lesson in utilizing press-on nails — for incredible results.

Which just goes to show that everyone has probably spent the last year perfecting their press-on nail technique, including celebs and their teams. Below, TZR's top four nail moments from the 2021 Critics' Choice Awards and all of the press-on nail designs or nail polish you might need to recreate the looks at home. (Just remember to have a cuticle oil on hand when it's time for removal. You'll thank yourself later.)

We only include products that have been independently selected by TZR's editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

Andra Day's Pink, Square-Shaped Manicure

Actor and musician Andra Day's manicure will have you running to grab your own box of Kiss Gel Fantasy Press-On Nails. "Andra loves long, square nails, and the pink added a soft pop of color for an overall subtle yet stunning look," explained celebrity manicurist Jolene Brodeur in a press email.

Cynthia Erivo's Long White Nails

Long, delicate white nails accented the neutral tones of actor and musician Cynthia Erivo's custom Vera Wang dress, creating a contrasting pop against the cream-colored fabric. Going to your nail technician is the best bet for a similar look, though a boutique press-on set or even ready-made press-on nails are options, too.
