If you've tuned in for the Grammys 2023, or simply followed along online, then you've already seen all of the jaw-dropping outfits and beauty looks that walked the red carpet, like Cardi B's electric blue hooded gown and matching liner. But if you look a little closer, you'll catch the iconic manicures and nails that you might have missed. Don't worry, it's not too late to get your daily dose of celebrity nail inspo.

From Lizzo's spring-ready 3D floral mani and Megan Fox's literal 14-karat-gold and diamond set to Jennfer Lopez's bedazzled lip gloss nails, we compiled all the best celebrity nail looks from music's biggest night, plus some nail artists' insight on how they created the glamorous looks.

Ahead, see the best celebrity manicures and nail art from the Grammys 2023.

Megan Fox

Fox wore a 14-karat solid white gold and diamond nail set that features crosses made of 150 delicate white diamonds—because of course she did. The set was designed by Jillian Sassone, founder and creative director of Marrow Fine Jewelry, and Brittney Boyce, celebrity nail artist and founder of Nails of LA.
Florals? For the Grammys? Groundbreaking (but actually). Lizzo matched her mani to her gorgeous orange gown, but the best part? The singer's nail artist Eri Ishizu shared how to get the look. First, Ishizu molded 3D flowers with acrylic on the nails, and then she applied OPIGelColor in Silicon Valley Girl. After curing, she added some crystal using OPI GelColor Stay Strong Base Coat, and finished with OPI GelColor Stay Matte Top Coat.
Laverne Cox
Cox wore an embellished gold manicure to match her jewelry. Nail artist Eri Ishizu broke down the look: Using natural stiletto medium length, apply two coats of Apres Artiste Metallic Gold, then place gold Swarovski crystal on top. Finish with topcoat.
Jennifer Lopez
Don't be fooled by the rocks J.Lo's nails got. Her mani is a chic and elevated take on the lip gloss nails trend. “We wanted nails that played off her Gucci gown in a fresh minimalistic way,” celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik said on Instagram. To get the look, Bachik used Tweezerman's Ultimate Nail Care Set, Apres Nails Lila Tips with a thin coat of Vintage Carnation, and a row of tiny diamonds draped down the center.
Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is certainly in her Midnights era. The singer, who won best music video for All Too Well: The Short Film, wore a midnight blue manicure that matched her midnight blue eye shadow and Roberto Cavalli skirt and top.
Cardi B
The rapper's goth glam stiletto black mani paired perfectly with her electric blue hooded gown by Indian fashion designer Gaurav Gupta.
Mary J. Blige
Blige sparkled her way down the red carpet, rocking an embellished silver gown, a gold belt, and bedazzled nails to match.
