Although many opted for bare, natural nails for their 2019 Tony Awards red carpet appearances, some stars boasted bling and played with color! We’ve rounded up a few nail looks from artists Danai Gurira, Billy Porter, Eva Noblezada and Kelli O’Hara—and even revealed the nail professionals behind the look!
Celebrity nail artist Tracylee worked with Danai Gurira for the Tony Awards in New York City to create a deep plum nail look to pair with her golden Gucci gown. “She always loves to have fun with nail color, and yesterday was a no exception,” writes the nail artist in her Instagram caption. “We decided a plum purple nail color would look amazing against gold.”

Woodbury-based Frenchies Nails artist Amanda Dean created not one, but two Tony Awards nail looks for the red carpet event. The nail artist used OPI in Black Onyx for Tony Award nominee Eva Noblezada’s Manicure and Let Me Bayou A Drink for her Pedicure.
Dean polished Best Actress nominee Kelli O’Hara’s natural nails with CND Winter Glow for a clean, minimalistic mani and OPI Malaga Wine for her Pedicure that wouldn’t take away from O’Hara’s classic black gown.
