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!

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!

People just can't stop talking about Beyonce performing at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show this Sunday. I mean, we have SO many questions: Will she reunite with Destiny's Child? Will she bust out some killer dance moves? And, most importantly, will she wear stripes? We've still got a few days to find out the answers to all our burning questions, but Bey did address that whole lip-syncing debacle today! Earlier at the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show press conference in New Orleans, she totally confronted her haters by belting out The Star-Spangled Banner a cappella in a beige, long-sleeve mini dress with an open back and sheer lace pumps. AND SHE KILLED IT. *high-fives entire world* But, um, can we be honest for a sec? While we certainly give her major props for nailing the performance, we couldn't help but get a WEE bit distracted by the seriously on-point nail game she was sporting. It's just. So. Shiny.
With all the rumors surrounding the intended subject matter of Justin Bieber's brand new Believe Acoustic tracks, it's hard NOT to have Selena Gomez on the brain today. It's not just because we've been listening to "Yellow Raincoat" on repeat — we're ALSO stumbling on a ton of Selena FASHUN news! First and foremost, the collection of Nicole by OPI nail polishes inspired by Selena hit shelves this month, and just in time for their release, we found this behind-the-scenes video from the campaign shoot.

Y'all already know how much we love accessories designer/celeb favorite Melody Ehsani. You've probably peeped her pieces on Rihanna, Beyonce, or Nicki Minaj, just to name a few, but now, Melody is expanding her killer vision into a whole other arena—nails! She teamed up with blogger Aureta Thomollari and nail artist Yoko Sakakura to create Candy Paint: a nail wrap/art studio combined with a jewelry space. YASSS. Last year, Melody opened up to us about her longtime obsession with nail art and gave us ALL the deets on her uh-mazing NCLA nail wrap collab, but we caught up with her again to chat about the inspiration behind her new salon, the importance of nail art, and her second collection of NCLA wraps. Check out the interview after the jump!
Since it's #ManicureMonday over here at MTV Style, we've already got nail art on the mind, but when we were perusing through Chloe Moretz's Instagram feed (like we usually do, NBD) we stumbled upon a KILLER mani that we need to discuss ASAP. She posted a picture of her tips (above) two days ago with the caption, "Best. Nail art. Ever!!!! #nylonmagazine sneak " Umm, OK, now we officially have two reasons to freak out: an out-of-this-world mani and a Nylon magazine shoot? Yesss! If her outfit is anything like her decked-out tips, she's going to be in a seriously pop art-inspired ensemble, and we can't WAIT to see that. But first, let's take a closer look at these nails, shall we?

Sure, we saw tons of amazing dresses on the SAG Awards red carpet tonight, but did y'all peep those nails? Kelly Osbourne, Anne Hathaway, Kaley Cuoco, Busy Philipps, and Sarah Hyland took their nail game to the next level by decking out their digits with killer designs. Kelly went all-out edgy (heh) by matching her glam rock black, studded Jenny Packham dress with black, heart-shaped tips. (Also, um, hello giant crystal cocktail ring. #need)

Sure, we love nail art, but when it comes to nail art on Beyonce, whew! It's a whole different ballgame, friends. Bey's go-to manicurist Lisa Logan (who has her own line at Minx and is someone you may remember from our prom nail art shoot back in 2011) created some custom tips for Beyonce's New Year's Eve performance in Las Vegas, and—OMG—they are uh-mazing. Bey posted a close-up pic of her digits last week, and Lisa says the designs were inspired by the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who is known for his obscure graffiti pieces (and is also a favorite of both Beyonce and Jay-Z). The colorful decals varied by each finger (which we LOVE), and we think it complemented her rhinestone-encrusted black and white bustier and curly locks perfectly.
