Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved from something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyoncé. The $50 Minx manicure made popular by Katy Perry is more than we’d generally be willing to spend on something so temporary (and, um, tiny), but on the off chance you have $250,000 you’re looking to be really careless with, and you’ve already ruled out eating it, snorting things with it, and donating to the poor (!), why not make like Kelly Osbourne at the Emmys and cash in on the Azature black diamond manicure? (Yes, the same one that drove Winona to pack up her things and take off for Jupiter. We’ll never forgive you for that, Azature.) What, like that’s not a completely reasonable and responsible way to spend your money?
To Kelly’s credit, there’s no doubt in my mind that she, being a Joan Rivers-approved television personality and Famous Person, got her black diamond nails did fo’ free, but it’s still fucking ridiculous. There, I said it. Now, in more optimistic celebrity nail news, Katy Perry knows what’s up!
You know, it is a sick sad world we live in, especially what with $250,000 manicures and all.
