They also sought to make statements with nail accessories. From the 18-year-old Billie Eilish who took home the Best New Artiste, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Pop Vocal Album to Lizzo, the singer-rapper, the red carpet was a spectacle of nails.

For Lizzo, who had eight nominations, her nails were in crystals. The affxed diamond-like, teardrop-shaped crystals were hanging off each finger and complimented the strapless, slit-leg white Versace gown. The nail artist Eri Ishizu decorated Lizzo’s tips with glitter-eights in honor of the singer receiving eight Grammy nominations. The nails were glossed over with Christian Louboutin polish.
