After a too-long hiatus (three years, to be exact), Lily Allen is back. From what I understand, she was busy doing things, like, having kids and getting married, or whatever. Basically, she's a certified adult now, but that doesn't mean she's lost her playful charm. Allen kicked off her comeback in November, with a new single AND a new video for "Hard Out Here," which featured a slew of dirty dancers on a soundstage, droppin' it like it's hot in barely-there outfits made of leather and mesh. According to a few pics Allen recently posted on Instagram, the location for her next video will be a bit more, um, scenic. (Don't worry, though. There will still be mesh. IRIDESCENT mesh.)
Zooey Deschanel and her daisy manicure at the 2014 Golden Globes.

While you were getting your cheese platters ready for your Golden Globes viewing parties, Zooey Deschanel was showing off her nail art on Instagram and in IRL on the 2014 Globes' Red Carpet. Zooey told Ryan Seacrest that her white-and-gold daisies took a few hours. Well worth the time, IMHO. The attention to detail is obvious: I mean, look at how straight and tiny the petals are! Her middle finger even has two daisies!

One of the things most frequently associated with rock 'n' roll is nail art. JK. Well-manicured digits are hard to maintain when you're thrashing a guitar, but it looks like nail art has finally made its way to the merch table anyway—thanks to Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss and Rad Nails (founded by MTV Style alum Chrissy Mahlmeister, NBD *hair flip*). With the help of her nail artist, Ria Lopez, Krauss has designed a killer set of custom nail wraps inspired by Sleigh Bells' most recent album, Bitter Rivals, and we are PUMPED.
"I had loved what Chrissy was doing," Krauss told Nylon, "and one day I was brainstorming with Ria about how we could incorporate band merch that was also really friendly to women. I think merchandise tends to be a very male-dominated world, and a lot of girls come to our shows. I wanted to do something for them that's different than a T-shirt or a tank."
Step aside, Angelina's right leg. There's a new show-stealing limb in town and it belongs to Gwen Stefani. More than a month after announcing that she'd be collaborating with OPI on her very own nail polish collection, Stefani flashed some majorly toned leg in one of two new promo pics posted on Twitter. Hey baby, hey baby, HEY. Both shots are totally drenched in a deep, rich red—from her dual-slit, Asian-inspired gown to her lips, nails and the background itself. It's striking, for sure, but it also happens to be the line's signature shade: Over & Over A-Gwen. SO PUNNY!
Demi Lovato in her video for 'Neon Lights.'

When Demi Lovato debuted the cover art for her new single, "Neon Lights," last week, we were all like, “OOOH” and “AHHH” and “where can we score some glow-in-the-dark nail polish?” Lovato stripped down and submerged herself in water for the beautifully illuminated first shot, and now we’re learning that there’s a lot more where that came from, thanks to a few sneak peek screen grabs from the song’s soon-to-be-released music video.
In honor of passing the 20-million follower mark on Twitter (*throws confetti*), Demi shared several pics from the rain-drenched shoot and OMG HER HAIR GLOWS, TOO. (Wait, is that why she dyed it neon blue or was the black light-friendly tint just a happy bonus? Hmm.) But that's not all that glows! Demi gets decked out in all KINDS of neon makeup: nail polish, lipstick, super thick cat-eye liner. SO FUN. We can haz, plz?
Katy Perry on set at her COVERGIRL shoot.

Now that Katy Perry is the newest face of COVERGIRL, she’s got some business to attend to. We imagine that includes things like experimenting with different shades of eye shadow, creating some sort of prismatic lip-illusion and just generally looking really pretty. Man, life as a COVERGIRL sounds hard, right? *sigh* But before she gets down to the nitty-gritty, Katy decided to have some fun by taking over the cosmetics giant’s Instagram account earlier today and only snapping photos of cats. JK! But that would have been hilarious.

Get excited, Lovatics (and general fans of nail art)! It’s your lucky day. Demi Lovato’s polish kit collaboration with The New Black has arrived earlier than anticipated and it’s everything we ever dreamed of (and more). The blue-haired singer and X Factor coach is forever flashing her on-point nail game (see here and here, for example), so when we heard that she’d be designing some stylish collections for the DIY-nail brand (alongside her ~personal~ manicurist), we were pretty pumped, to say the least. And while we thought we’d have to wait until November 1st to get a glimpse at the kits, it turns out they’re available online now! SQUEE!
