Forget stunning stilettos — the go-to gown accessory at Sunday's Emmys in Los Angeles was an eye-catching manicure! Here, the four stars who were wearing the most lust-worthy lacquers.

Kate Winslet complemented her bold, red-hot Elie Saab gown with a neutral hue. “I did two coats of Deborah Lippmann Like a Virgin (a sheer, milky white lacquer) on her toes and one coat on her hands for a very modern, clean look," Deborah Lippmann tells Us Weekly.

Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz, who sported a sky-high ponytail and a dramatic smoky eye, also kept her manicure chic and sophisticated. She sported a pretty pastel pink polish, which went together nicely with her mod, black-and-white Ghadah Paris dress.

True Blood star Anna Paquin darkened things up with coffee-colored nails to accent her black Alexander McQueen gown. "I used OPI Nail Lacquer in Get in the Expresso Lane, a trendsetting chocolate brown from OPI's latest Fall/Winter 2011 'Touring America' collection. OPI is a favorite of Paquin and her True Blood cast mates!" OPI celebrity manicurist Beth Fricke tells Us.

The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco was the most creative star of the night: she paired her black Romona Keveza dress and red accessories with a two-toned manicure. "I used  OPI Nail Lacquer in Over The Taupe on her all her nails, except on her two ring fingers, which were painted with OPI Nail Lacquer in Big Apple Red," syas Fricke.

(The mix-and-match mani has also been spotted on Beyonce, who donned green and pink polish together, and Lauren Conrad, who sported a gradient of coordinating blues.)
