When the Met Gala announced its ‘Gilded Glamour and White Tie’ theme, we knew we were in for a treat. It’s no secret that celebrities dress to the nines (and beyond) at the Met Gala, with dazzling and hair and make-up to match, but it’s the details that truly make the look. Enter the best nails spotted on this year’s red carpet.
