So about last night—not only did designers Jeremy Scott, Gucci, Tom Ford, Donatella Versace and more, style celebrities, models and influencers for the camp-themed gala, complete with extravagant ensembles, hand-beaded gowns and over-the-top headpieces and accessories, but nail artists also took part in defining fun and fluid “camp.”
Lady Gaga blessed the red carpet with an Oscar-worthy entrance featuring four impromptu Brandon Maxwell ensemble changes. Celebrity nail artist Naomi Yasuda painted the New-York native’s almond-shaped nails with Big Apple Red by OPI.

Peth also polished both of the Jenner sisters’ nails, where Kylie wore lavender from head to toe—literally—accented with sheer OPI GelColors Samoan Sand and Chiffon My Mind.
Yasuda embellished singer Rita Ora’s square-shaped talons in dazzling stones and OPI GelColor Comet Closer, Dreams on a Silver Platter and Gold Key to the Kingdom to accent her custom Marc Jacobs look.
Emi Kudo answered some frequently asked questions on her Instagram post of Yara Shahid’s nails. The night before the event, Kudo attained a permit to use extra beads and stones from Shahid’s custom Prada ensemble. The celebrity manicurist used Pattie Yankee press-ons for her almond shaped nails and polished them with OPI’s Infinite Shine in Kanpai and topped the nails with hologram glitters.

The talented nail artist also took to Elle Fanning’s nails to showcase her own take on “camp.” Inzerillo embellished Fanning’s nails with vintage charms from E Village Vintage Collective and polished them with Strike a Rose from Essie’s newest summer collection to accent her Miu Miu two-piece. “Elle is the definition of camp. She wanted an expressive, bold look and we went for it,” says Inzerillo. “Each almond-shaped nail was pierced and adorned with fun vintage charms, from french fries to Bubble Yum!”
Model Josephine Skriver wore a embroidered nude Essie manicure to cast the attention on her Jonathan Simkhai custom silk gazar dress with hand-embroidered silk flowers, crystals and beading. Celebrity manicurist Bana Jarjour says, “In keeping with Josephine’s feminine, floral aesthetic for the evening, we decided on an embroidered nail look. I used a stamping tool to apply Essie in Blanc and Topless & Barefoot.”
