Pretty in Purple

Luckily for Hollywood's biggest superstars at the Academy Awards, the weather held up and it didn't rain. However, purple reign showered the red carpet, as many celebs sizzled in every shade of the color with lovely lilac, lavender, plum and amethyst gowns.

Best Actress winner Natalie Portman wore a regal purple Rodarte silk chiffon dress, which elegantly draped her baby bump. The trim of the off-the-shoulder V-neck sparkled in Swarovski crystals. It inspired SHINE Beauty Beacon to create the Natalie Portman Pretty in Purple Oscar Manicure, which features shimmering tips.

The Natalie Portman Pretty in Purple Oscar Manicure Protocol:

Step 1: Apply a base coat to each nail and one layer of muted purple polish, such as mauve (pictured below; center).

Step 2: Paint a thin line along the length of each nail tip with a shimmery dark violet lacquer (pictured below; right) to mimic the trim of the neckline.

Step 3: Dot over the thin line of shimmery dark violet polish with a glittery raspberry lacquer (pictured below; left) to create a sparkle similar to the Swarovski crystals.

Step 4: Layer each nail with a top coat.

BEAUTY: The Natalie Portman Pretty in Purple Oscar Manicure uses Zoya nail lacquers--Nova (raspberry glitter), Demi (mauve) and Valerie (dark violet shimmer). BEACON: The polishes are made without toluene, formaldehyde, camphor or DBP (dibutyl phthalate).
