Sure, the 2013 VMAs may be over, but we still can't stop talking about those nails! In case you missed it, we had a STELLAR spot on the red carpet *brushes shoulders off* where we could shoot some of our favorite celeb's manis up close. While some ladies went for a super simple design (like our MTV.com red carpet host Rachel Antonoff!), others went BALLS. OUT. with some seriously decked-out tips. We have a total soft spot for girls that take their nail game to the next level, so we picked our 5 favorite designs to share with y'all! FYI: Be sure to peep the poll at the end of the post, so you can see the winning design recreated in a step-by-step tutorial right here on MTV Style. Pretty cool, eh?

Our first favorite mani comes from Ms. Rita Ora. She sported seriously chic nude stiletto tips with just a hint of rhinestones on the pointer and ring finger to match her all-crystal-everything Alexandre Vauthier gown. *picks jaw up off floor*
