In honor of one of our favorite nails series, Sips and Tips—where we pair a drink with a matching manicure—we invited special celebrity guest, Orange is the New Black star and green beauty fanatic Alysia Reiner, as well as 75 beauty and fashion bloggers, influencers and industry pros for a night of drinks, manis and conversation.

Jan Arnold, CND co-founder and style director, as well as a Nail'd It judge, created a black-and-gold mani with sparkling crystals to match the wild side of The Pear Tree. Kandi Banks, celebrity nail designer and Nail'd It contestant, created a vivacious cream-and-brown mani accented with red jewels to match The Berry Merry. Finally, Paintbox's own Julie Ventura—another Nail'd It contestant!—created a luxe glitter gradient manicure accented with pearls.

As if that wasn't enough, guests were treated to some addicting treats from Snappers and Blue Diamond.
