And never more important than on the most important of important awards nights: the Oscars.
And so, at the 85th annual Academy Awards, glam nails stole the spotlight. Singer Adele, and model turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley had celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees on hand to add the final, well, polish to their look.
Kyees in turn relied on renowned nail lacquer brand Sally Hansen to create signature nail styles for their red carpet moment.
First, Adele. Nominated for 'best original song' "Skyfall” from the latest James Bond picture of the same name, she sported a mani with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail lacquer in Naked Ambition.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, impossibly gorgeous English model and actress, wore a custom-mixed colour with beaded adornments to create a very chic, very now nail.
Kyees created her look by painting one layer of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Mudslide under two coats of Complete Salon Manicure in Shell We Dance. While nails were still wet, Kyees applied a pearl and a gold metallic bead to the bottom centre of each nail.

LA-based Kyees is known for her mani originality, creating teeny works of art on each fingertip for A-listers. Kyees uses the pro Sally Hansen range of cutting edge, fashion-forward colours.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is RRP$ 14.95 each.
Oh, and here is my attempt at the Kyees/Rosie nail... so simple, so chic. Try it.
