Kristen Bell’s Nail Polish From The 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Is So Affordable
Daring dresses, bold makeup, and elegant hairstyles rule award show looks, often forcing smaller beauty details, like nail color, to take a backseat. However, celebrities tend to have a keen sense of style when it comes to their manicures, even if they choose to wear a softer shade on the red carpet. Kristen Bell's nail polish is the understated color you'll want to stock up on for the new year — it goes with everything.
Bell walked the blue carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica on Sun. to support her co-stars from The Good Place. The actor opted to complement the carpet in a bold, cobalt gown by Cushnie that featured a square neckline, a mesh insert, and a flowing hem. She was adorned in luxe jewels by David Webb, Jimmy Choo heels, and a Judith Leiber box clutch.
In an effort to keep with her breezy beauty routine that consisted of windswept waves, glossy lips, and a glowing highlight, she completed the look with long, rounded nails that were painted in a blush color and coated with an extra-shiny finish.
Celebrity nail artist, Emi Kudo, used ZOYA products to achieve the actor's high-shine manicure. She began by prepping Bell's nails with ZOYA’s Naked Manicure Hydrate & Heal System to moisturize, followed by the strengthening Naked Manicure Base Coat.
She then applied a single coat of the brand's nail lacquer in Sari — a soft, powdery pink — before sealing her work with the Naked Manicure Glossy Seal. Kudo used a few of ZOYA's Fast Drops to help Bell's nails dry as quickly as possible.
Bell's pink tone is an elevated version of a traditional nude, keeping your nails natural-looking with an added element of sophistication. No matter the season, you'll want to paint and repaint your nails this soft color all year long.
