Kelly Osbourne Wore $250,000 Nail Polish To The Emmys

Okay, hopefully this will be the last bit of Emmys 2012 coverage because… because they were barely watchable as it is and we probably don’t need round-the-clock ephemera updates. But, as a fashion and beauty site–especially one leery of both industries’ roulette wheel of pricing–we couldn’t let this one by. Kelly Osbourne wore a $250,000 manicure to the Emmys. Yes, you read that right. One quarter of one million dollars. For sparkly nail stuff.

The six figure manicure came compliments of LA-based jeweller Azature and apparently involves black diamonds. To create demand, there’s only one bottle of the polish in the entire world–to be used (exclusively) on celebs (for free) and people with no soul (for full price). Oh, but Fred Segal sells a $25 version, so don’t lose any sleep.

Granted, we sincerely doubt Osbourne paid a dime for the manicure–she paid in more nebulous currency (and blog posts exactly like this one) by tweeting before the ceremony, “About to get a $250k manicure w nail polish made w blk diamonds made by @azature so excited & honored.”

Here’s a closer-up in case it ever occurred to you to wonder what a $250,000 manicure looked like:

Don’t be shocked but… yes, it appears the $250,000 manicure looks exactly like every other manicure ever.

    Normally I just do that half assed nose snort of amusement/horror at celebrity stories, but this one for some reason just makes me so fucking sad for humanity. Honestly! A quarter of a million bucks! She should just be so awfully ashamed of herself right now. How’s the reaction: “So excited & honored”

    How can they say it costs $250k when they give it away for free? It’s such a made up number, with no actual connection to its worth.

      Exactly. I want to be all outraged, but I can’t because of this. It’s all just such bullshit.

    When I was 12 and a pre-teen gothling, I was obsessed with this Wet N Wild nail polish and wore it like every day. It was this black with silver sparkles, and it looked… exactly like that.

    I don’t know how I feel about this.

    What a waste of black diamonds

    It looks like glue-on Halloween nails.

    So much for liberal hollywood values.
