Grammy Manis

The stars weren't the only things shining at the 53rd Grammy Awards. From nude to noir—and every shade of pink-red in between—the tips and toes of the bedecked divas were nothing to be scoffed at.

Celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik spent the afternoon primping our favorite accessories (the nails, duh) on the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Leann Rimes and even too-cool-for-school Usher.

For the new Idol judge, Bachik applied two coats of his own new gel polish, Artistic Colour Gloss, in soft, sheer peach Seduction. He then dipped the tips in Dazzled, a sparkly silver glitter. For Lopez' toes, Bachik used shimmery gunmetal gray Metro, also from Artistic Colour Gloss.

To offset Leann Rimes' glittery gold gown, Bachik polished her nails bright coral, courtesy of Chanel Orange Fizz. But Rimes didn't go matchy-matchy for this occasion; rather, she opted for soft baby blue Riva on her toes.

Usher preferred to keep his "man"-icure, well, manly and Bachik buffed the songsters nails—both hands and feet—to a high shine.
