NAIL HOW-TO: Emma Stone's Louis Vuitton-inspired Nails from Essie for 2018 Met Gala

May 8, 2018 | 7:15 AM

Celebrity manicurist Emi Kudo used Essie shades to create a nail look that gave a nod to Emma Stone's Louis Vuitton ensemble. 

"Emma is wearing custom Louis Vuitton this evening, and she wanted to give a subtle nod to the brand with her nail look," Kudo said.

To Recreate the Look:

  1. Start with two coats of the cult-classic Ballet Slippers on each nail.
  2. Added a touch of edge with an LV silver nail decal on the right ring finger. 
  3. Finish the look with Essie’s Speed.Setter top coat. 

Emma's look also included the use of Essie shade Berry Naughty, a creamy dark red, on her toes.
