MTV VMA 2015 Celebrity Manicures

Every year and like many others, I wait to see who is wearing what at the MTV Video Music Awards, and following this year’s ceremony I was not disappointed! Alongside the stunning designer dresses and outfits, I took note of the best celebrity manicures at the VMA’s 2015 to share with you…

As mentioned previously in my Celebrity Summer Nail Trends article, nude nails have been the in thing! And whilst we head towards autumn, it looks like this particular trend is going nowhere for now!

Nicki Minaj was seen rocking her signature nude and fierce stiletto shaped nails with little delicate studs at the awards. The nail colour fits right in with her dazzling nude and golden dress and paired with her sexy nude lipstick, it’s a full on nude affair! It’s also fair to say, the delicate rings and wrist jewelry emphasizes and compliments her flawless manicure.

Here Chrissy Teigen is seen wearing a shiny black nail polish for the awards. I love a simple nail and Chrissy’s short and neat manicure definitely does it for me. Her dress is amazingly flamboyant and I agree with her Nail Technician, her nails do not need to take away from that! Sometimes, simplicity is key.

Out of all the manicures for me, Demi Levato’s cute pink and nude nail art manicure was my absolute favourite. As a fan of Demi, I think that the nail colour characterised her soft, lovable personality and the pointy stiletto shape represents her spunky attitude. Her nails are basically telling us “I like to keep it cute with a little bit of attitude.” Usually matching nail colour with an outfit colour is a no-no for me, however with the pink being soft I think it can be worn with any outfit. Kudos Demi!

Vanessa Hudgens’ rose gold coloured nails and matching finger jewelry screamed sophistication to me! There’s just something about rose gold that says expense and style. Although simple and neat, Vanessa’s manicure still represented her classic yet youthful personality.

Lastly, we have Kylie Jenner sporting her signature squared shape nails. Usually Kylie loves her pastel and nude colours but I guess with a new hair-do also comes a new manicure-do! She has clear nail polish with a sprinkle of glitter. The glitter was a great touch for the awards. After all, award shows are supposed to be all about the glitz and glam right?

Thanks for reading. Feel free to share a comment below on your favourite celebrity manicure at the MTV VMA’s 2015.

    These are great examples of the different ways nails can complement an outfit! thanks for covering the VMAs where we get to see more unusual styles than other shows. I agree, Demi Lovatos nails are fabulous and complement her dress perfectly. I’m glad you showed full length photos along with the nails.

    Loved Nicki’s nails with that dress. So cool to pair subtle nails with her outragous style. But they aren’t too subtle because they still have that bling!

    These stiletto manicures, literally are fierce! They look fantastic for an event, but not so practical in day to day life – but long nails never are I guess lol

    No Jesse J?? She always has fantastic nails.

    Loving the nudes though, I always think they look really classy on any nail shape.
