Welp, if you got totally wrapped up in the New York Fashion Week/Grammys storm (like us!), you've miiight've forgotten about a lovely little thing called Valentine's Day happening tomorrow. If you have a killer date/girl's night planned and still want into get into the holiday spirit, we've got some super cute last-minute DIY options to get your nail game on POINT before the big day. One of our favorite looks is this blue and white heart mani (above) with a different design on every digit. We love how it's mod-inspired AND isn't in the traditional pink and white color scheme. (Also, if you want to keep it simple, just pick one of these designs and do it on all your fingers!)

Just when you think you've seen EVERYTHING from the 2013 Grammys, we got our hands on even more deets behind some of the best beauty looks of the night. We loved Kelly Clarkson's super shimmery violet, pink, and gold glitter polish, which popped against her tea-length black sweetheart dress. But, as it turns out, it was a custom creation made just for Ms. Clarkson! She Instagrammed a pic of her decked-out nails and said, "The great Deborah Lippmann created a custom nail polish for me today! Should we call it 'Stronger?'" Wait, does this mean she's actually making this nail polish?! YASSS.
While the 2013 Grammys lacked both meat dresses and see-through lace gowns, the attendees didn't seem to follow that fashion advisory memo CBS sent out in hopes of curbing "inappropriate" nudity. They didn't actually think that, of all people, musicians would listen, did they? Even with side-boob and full leg exposed, the Grammys seemed a bit more tame and glamorous this year than in years past, and of course we could count on a lot of great hair and makeup. Below are some of my favorite beauty looks from the night along with tips on how to get the signature piece of the look.

Dare I say best dressed?? Rihanna always looks good, but I'm not sure we've ever seen her look this glamorous. Her hair is to die for, but my favorite thing about this look is how perfectly her lips match her dress. To get lips as good as this, I'd recommend trying NARS Semi Matte lipstick in Jungle Red.
Jennifer Lopez at the 2013 Grammy Awards on Feb. 10.

Almost exactly a year ago, Angelina Jolie debuted her infamous right leg at the Oscars and, lucky for us, it's baaaccckk! On the Grammys red carpet, Jennifer Lopez sported a black, one-shoulder Anthony Vaccarello satin gown with a slit up to gosh-knows-where, and we can't stop staring it. (Sorry!) If you can tear your eyes away from her toned thighs, you'll see she accessorized with killer strappy gold and black stilettos, a gold paneled clutch, SERIOUSLY impressive bangles, and diamond stud earrings. For her beauty game, she pulled her hair back into a tight high bun and went for black liner all around her eyes. She finished the look with a glossy nude lip and bronzed cheeks. But, um, have y'all peeped her nails yet? IN. SANE.

If there's one person we can always count on to bust out an A+ nail game for awards shows, it's Kelly Osbourne. The E! Grammy Awards host continually nails (heh) her ornate-but-not-too-over-the-top red carpet manis, and tonight is no different. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, Kelly opted for some white hearts on her tips, which is a super cute twist on the traditional French manicure. Her crisp white nails totally pop against her all-black Paule Ka cut-out gown, which we LOVE. (No pun intended!) If you're thinking this mani looks a WEE but familiar, your memory has served you right—Kelly sported a similar heart manicure at the SAG Awards a couple weeks ago. But tell us, do you like Kelly's heart nail art? Let us know in the comments below!
Snooki's quest for total world domination is still in full force, but now you can be a part of it! In case you haven't been keeping up with the Snooki & JWOWW star, she has already released super successful sunglasses, sandals, handbags, jewelry and slippers collections, and most recently launched a nail polish line. We loved her holiday-ready red and gold sparkly sets, but right now she's diving head-first into her spring collection. (Psst: This is where you come in!)

We already know what you're thinking, and, yes, we're still talking about Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show amazingness nearly 24 hours later. Between the Destiny's Child reunion and endless sea of Rubin Singer leather ensembles, we thought we'd seen it ALL. Then, we were hit up with some killer behind-the-scenes shots of the nail art, and we just had to share! Bey's longtime manicurist Lisa Logan arrived on Saturday to deck out all the ladies' tips for the pre-taped holographic segments, and, as you can see (above), this was no easy feat. Lisa said, "As soon as I arrived at the hotel, I began working on creating super long nail tips covered with the Gold and Matte Gold Chevron Minx that would be worn by the backup dancers. The process was very time consuming because the nails were going to be used in the holographic segment where it looks like Beyonce has multiple arms, so all the dancers had to be wearing the same design. And, because the nails were so long, I needed to use two Minx templates to cover each tip." The end result? Totally killer all-gold tips complete with thick hand chains. Twerk it, Lisa!

It seems like forever ago since Adam Levine announced he was launching a fragrance (it's been a year, y'all!), but now the Maroon 5 frontman's two scents are officially here. He is releasing a self-titled women's and men's scent that will hit Macy’s later this month, and he ALREADY has a lot to say about it. In an interview with WWD he said, "I didn't want it to be another bulls*** celebrity fragrance that I was hocking, that I didn't believe in. At the end of the day, I can definitely say I wanted to change the perception of that. On paper, I'm not a fan of the [genre], but I got excited having conversations with ID Perfumes." Adam teamed up with the same company that created Selena Gomez's fragrance and wanted to do something "understated and elegant." So... what does it smell like? WE NEED TO KNOW.
