When it comes to celebrity red carpet looks, there tends to be an element of extravagance that doesn’t always translate to the everyday woman, in her everyday life.
Except for their manicures, that is. Barring those that cost an arm and a leg, there’s no red carpet trend more attainable than celebrity nails and the covetable colours they wear.
Lately, we’ve noticed the red carpet is all about soft, neutral tones in creamy finishes. Translation: the easiest colours to wear every day. Even to work. So click through our gallery to find your next go-to shade.
Oh, and when you’re updating your mani, don’t forget to start by prepping your nails with the Scholl Velvet Smooth™ Electronic Nailcare System, an easy-to-use tool that files, buffs, and polishes nails for naturally smooth finish, and finish off with the nourishing Scholl Velvet Smooth™ Nail Care Oil to moisturise and condition your cuticles and nails.

There’s nothing quite as crisp as an opaque cream manicure. Keep your nails short for an edgier style, and don’t forget a topcoat to finish it off, as this will keep the colour fresh.
Hint of pink
Is it a nude? A beige? A pink? This soft shade is almost a combination of all three, making it a great go-to for every skin tone.
The pefect shade when you want something soft and neutral without looking too girly.
Best for warmer skin tones, this orange-based neutral works just as fabulously in the office as it would for a more dressed-up look. Bonus points if you can match your outfit to your mani!
The subtle sister of charcoal, a light grey is a great shade to embrace during the colder months without feeling like you’re getting too heavy with your nail colour.
