Emmy Rossum's lace overlay manicure was right on target with the punk theme of the evening, created by butter London's Katie Hughes using Yummy Mummy and lace from Donna Karan to match Emmy's dress. 

 

Rita Ora's nails were half grown-out, half studded, and all neutral for the Met Gala. 

 

Miley Cyrus showed up to the Met Gala with spiked hair that we still can't figure out, plus this gold, glittery manicure that will likely take hours to remove.

When the Met Gala’s 2013 theme was announced as “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” we knew the red carpet would be one of the most insane we’d ever seen. Between the faux hawks, the insanely smokey eyes and the hair color changes that were debuted on Anne Hathaway (platinum blonde), Nicole Richie (grey) and Karlie Kloss (black), there was no shortage of shocking celebrity appearances. We were absolutely floored, however, by the high caliber of nail art to hit the carpet.

From 3D nail art on Katy Perry to a lace overlay manicure on Emmy Rossum, stars stepped out with some of the greatest nail art we’ve ever seen and they absolutely blew the punk theme out of the water (at least on their nails). We’ve rounded up the 10 best manicures from the Met Gala above, and we think you’ll agree that this red carpet has set a new bar for nail art. Take a look at our favorite picks from the evening and tell us which celebrity had your favorite manicure in the comments below!
