Katy Perry has always been way ahead of the nail game. We know Kelly Osbourne tried to usurp her with her with a $250,000 black diamond manicure. Seriously, she had black diamonds on her nails at the Emmys this weekend, which had a fair amount of people balking at the indulgence of it all. Not Kelly, though, who tweeted, “I see that my nail polish has offended some of you, however I see your point, but it was a once in a lifetime experience.
#MyApologizes” adding, “And please forgive me for not regretting it. it made me feel like a queen!” Queen for a day because one super-expensive manicure does not edge out all the other incredible nail designs Katy’s had over the last few years.
The singer almost always tweets out her new crazy manicures which range from the Smurfs, to her ex-Russell Brand‘s face, to the Royal Family in honor of Kate and Will’s wedding last year, to most recently, custom cartoon characters in Japan.
