Hollywood's leading ladies flaunted romantic manicures by Essie at the 90th Annual Academy Awards.

Saoirse Ronan

Essie treat love & color shade: Minimally Modest

"Minimal, monochromatic chic was the inspiration for Saoirse’s youthful, classy look," says celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders. "Minimally Modest, a powdery pink from Essie’s strengthening, care plus color line of polish, treat love & color, was the perfect shade to accompany her satin Calvin Klein dress."

Emma Stone

Essie Shades: Ballet Slippers, Gel.Setter

“Emma is sporting a custom Louis Vuitton maroon pantsuit," celebrity manicurist Emi Kudo says. "This outfit called for a classy, glamorous nail to offset her androgynous look. Essie’s sheer, pale pink Ballet Slippers was the picture-perfect choice, finishing with Essie’s gel.setter for added gel-like shine."

Danai Gurira

Essie Shades: Limo-Scene, No Place Like Chrome, Speed.Setter

“We chose limo-scene, a clean, pastel pink shade, to complement Danai’s beautiful blush gown and added a dot of metallic No Place Like Chrome at the base of each nail for added edge," says celebrity manicurist Tracy Clemens. "Essie’s Speed.Setter was the final touch for a high-shine finish."

Viola Davis

Essie Shades: Less is Aura, Speed. Setter

“The warm terra-cotta Less is Aura from Essie’s new desert mirage collection was the best beige nude to complement Viola’s rich skin tone in addition to her hot pink Michael Kors gown," says celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles. "For a high-shine finish, we topped the look off with Essie’s Speed.Setter."
