The VMA’s never disappoint, whether you are watching for the music, the fashion or to spot your new fave celebrity couple on the Red Carpet. This year did not disappoint, it was a year of amazing winners. Whilst we know every other blog is discussing the best dressed and best performance, we want to know the nitty gritty… and by that, we mean the best nails of course. So here are our top five nail looks seen on the Red Carpet and our tips and tricks on how you can recreate them.

Cardi B snatched up ‘Best Hip Hop’ for her song ‘Money’. Once again proving that she is at the top of her game, this is the same for her nail game. Cardi’s nails are always on-point thanks to her amazing nail tech Jenny Bui. Bui is the tech behind Cardi B’s well known and outlandishly long nails with intricate designs. Despite her nails being a fair few inches long, this gold statement was more on the subtle side for Cardi. We recommend the Leighton Denny nail polish in ‘Wanderlust’ if you fancy giving this golden look a try.

Hailee Steinfeld looked effortlessly glam with this amazing monochromatic red outfit, the nails, lipstick, shoes…everything! It can be very difficult to pull off a look like this but when it works- it really works. The Leighton Denny polish in ‘Fight Club’ is a bold showstopper, with its rich formula and pigment which cannot be beat, this polish is perfect to help you achieve Hailee’s look.
Lizzo put on a wonderful show for all her fans during the VMA’s and performed her heart out – she astonished everyone with her solo performance. Her ‘red carpet look’ really showed everyone she was there to stand out. Lizzo wore a beautiful yet unique purple metallic polish, our perfect match has to be Leighton Denny in ‘Totally Bedazzled’. The silver-to-purple shift in the shade makes it such a unique gem you all need to experience.
Keke Palmer celebrated her 26th birthday at the VMA’s and how beautiful does she look? Rockin’ a bedazzled 90’s phone to match her all-gold aesthetics. Her dress and makeup worked beautifully and although eccentric, it’s done with an elegant style. For Keke’s nails she chose a classic white, we believe white polishes are an important staple in any girls collection. Leighton Denny’s ‘Pure White’ is just as the name suggests, PURE and would be the perfect colour to recreate this iconic look. Say goodbye to a million sheer coats, this formula is creamy and rich every time. You’re welcome!
Camila Cabello was looking stunning with her new boyfriend Shawn Mendes all night, they performed an amazing rendition of their song ‘Senorita’. Which went on to bag the awards in both cinematography and collaboration. Camila is grasping the awards sporting a beautiful grey polish, Leighton Denny’s gorgeous ‘Zero Gravity’ has beautiful coverage and is your go-to shade when recreating this look.
