Last night’s 71st Golden Globes certainly saw quite an unexpected outpour at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, but fortunately even a burst pipe on the red carpet couldn't put a dampener on the oodles of glitz and the glamour provided by Tinseltown's finest sashaying up and down the red carpet in all their colourful couture.

As we ogled away, oohing and ahhing at Margot Robbie's side-swept chignon and Sarah Hyland's milkmaid braid, while spying Mila Kunis' take on a modern smokey eye and Jennifer Lawrence's deep plum lip, it didn't take long for our attention to quickly avert towards all the dazzling digits on the red carpet.

Reese Witherspoon's Rouge Noir-esque nails and the various shades of nude that graced many a screen siren’s nail were pretty, but simply no match for the nifty nail art of Kelly Osbourne, Zooey Deschanel, Kerry Washington and Monica Potter. When it comes to using nails as an accessory, this group of style mavens have set the bar rather high for the ensuing awards season - but while the other starlets race to find a new manicurist, here's a round-up of the best nail art at the 2014 Golden Globes...


Almond shaped nails with gold glitter featuring a couple of Golden Globes; Kelly Osbourne gets tens across the board for the most imaginative and fun yet glamorous nails. A meticulous manicure.


This had a distinct DIY look about it, but then if ever there was someone who could pull off a DIY daisy nail, it would be 'New Girl' star Zooey Deschanel. This added a cute modern twist to her old-Hollywood-meets-girly beauty look.


A peach and silver manicure that is as grown-up and chic as it is contemporary, Kerry Washington's understated nail art certainly packed a punch.


Monica Potter's eye-catching ombré nails in black and gold glitter added a refreshingly edgy accent to her Romona Keveza gown.
