They nailed it!

The theme of this year's Met Gala was clear in the guests' outfits, hair, and makeup. In fact, some of the attendees followed it down to the tips of their fingers that we just have to give them a shoutout! Here are eight guests who literally nailed this red carpet event's divine aesthetic:

1. Gigi Hadid

There's more to the model's metallic fingers than meets the eye—manicurist Mary Sol attached Swarovski crystals behind her talons for understated shine!


2. Ashley Graham

Nude, but in theme. Ashley Graham had her digits decked out in crystal crosses.

3. Lili Reinhart

Lili's Met outfit might not be as outrageous as the others, but her gold leaf nails definitely made an impact.

4. Katherine Langford

The 13 Reasons Why actress and Met gala first-timer was a walking work of art on the red carpet with her gold-dipped nails. "I wanted it to feel like she’d been dabbling in alchemy while getting ready," explains her makeup artist Fiona Stiles.

5. Lily Collins

Lily Collins had a pristine black manicure for her dark arts-inspired look, but her hands were also covered in liquid and powder highlighter for that otherworldly glow. Her makeup artist did say she wanted her to look like marble.


6. Kim Kardashian

KKW's tips were perfectly squared and glossed to perfection by manicurist Tom Bachik, making the case for old-school French tips.

7. Selena Gomez

Selena's choice was a metallic green and gold mani punctuatued by Tiffany and Co. rings. This nail color combo actually matches the glitters on her eyes!


8. Nicki Minaj

This gothic ombré on the rapper's nails took the theme and ran with it. Because those carefully drawn crosses on her index and ring fingers? Art.
