Though the 2019 Academy Awards may have gone without a host for the evening, the occasion was certainly not lacking in its style and beauty. As the biggest night in Hollywood, the Oscars are also a major night for the designers and brands seen among the stars, both on and off the red carpet. Paired with all of the custom designs and couture gowns straight off the runway are jaw-dropping beauty looks, with some inspiring you to create the look at home. One of those looks was Lady Gaga’s pink nails, which were created using a shade from Essie’s Spring 2019 collection.
The beloved drugstore nail brand’s latest collection made its debut on the fingertips of the actress and singer, who won the Best Original Song award for “Shallow.” Gaga sported Stirring Secrets, a light pink, barely-there shade that will pair beautifully with an all-black ensemble such as hers, or any other color you choose.
The entire collection consists of six different shades inspired by classic spring tea parties, ranging from a warm mocha brown and metallic deep teal to classic nudes and shimmering pastels. Each of these polishes costs $9, which means you can take this effortless Oscars beauty look to your everyday occasions without blowing your budget.
For those who prefer everyday neutrals such as Stirring Secrets, you can also wear Pinkies Out, a muted coral with a pearl sheen. If you want to stay within the pink realm — a trend that did not go unnoticed on the red carpet of the Academy Awards — there’s also Touch of Sugar, which is a sheer rosy pink with a hint of gold shimmer. And just in case pink hues aren’t your go-to for nails, or you want to take a more dramatic approach, Teacup Half Full is a beautiful brown that has the right amount of pink tones to make it perfect for the season.
There are also a couple of bolder options within this spring collection as well, such as Tiers of Joy, an otherworldly periwinkle color with flecks of lavender iridescence, and Reign Check, which is a mysterious and dark metallic teal for those who want to add a little edge to their beauty looks.
