10 Gorgeous Manicures from the 2014 MTV VMAs

Everyone oohs and aahs over the outfits celebs wear on the red carpet–especially at the MTV VMAs, where the red carpet outfits are always revealing and over-the-top and crazy.

But what about the gorgeous manicures?


Always one for flash and pizzazz, Nicki Minaj rocked clear, pointed nails adorned with tiny crystals and rhinestones to complete her sparkly silver animal print mini dress.


Katy Perry may have opted out of any embellishments for her muted blue nails (which matched her all-denim ensemble), but she still managed to make them look over-the-top by wearing them extra long.


No long (and hazardous) fake nails for Victoria Justice. The Nickelodeon star kept her nails very short, but kept them interesting with some eye-catching neon pink nail paint.


Sarah Hyland’s VMA nails–nude with a metallic gold stripe along the top–was simply exquisite.


A simple, glossy black mani completed Gwen Stefani’s rock chick look on the VMAs red carpet.


Ke$ha, who went full rainbow at the VMAs with her candy-colored locks, surprisingly kept her nails quite tame–pointy and painted in a striking teal color.


Jamie Chung went with a simple, elegant mani–shimmering nude nail polish with one tiny crystal on each nail.


Beyonce’s metallic silver manicure was quite eye-catching, but far from over-the-top. A few embellishments here and there kept it from looking too simple.


The very pregnant Kelly Rowland, who wore a sequined nude gown to the VMAs, made sure her mani matched her dress by opting for nude nail polish with a glittery gold stripe on the bottom.


Rita Ora’s was probably the most memorable manicure of the night–because of it reportedly cost quite a lot. Her pointy red nails, which she accentuated with handcrafted diamond spiders and ruby bows, reportedly cost the singer $56,000.
