This year, celebrity nail art has really gone from artistic strength to strength. The designs became really creative, as you can see from our countdown of the best celebrity nails of 2012, or if you played our “guess the celebrity manicure” game with us. Whether it was Jordin Sparks‘ Pacman mani, Zooey Deschanel‘s little bowties, or Pink’s mini gumballs … we’ve got some amazo ideas to try for ourselves. But back to this particular picture, seen above. Reindeer’s? Candy canes? Santa? Mistletoe? It’s a Christmas manicure! The “she” in question, is known for getting some really stellar nail art. She can really sing. She’s absolutely lovely. She’s has some pretty cool tattoos. And she’s got this terrific nail art that’s cheering us up on this cold wintry morning. Can you guess who she is?

Over the past year nail art has reached new heights of popularity among celebrities — and regular people too. Stars usually step out on the red carpet with a fresh manicure, but of late, nails have stopped being merely an accessory and have evolved into a focal point. Zooey Deschanel kicked off the year with adorable tuxedo nails at the 2012 Golden Globes and Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Rihanna and Amber Rose have followed suit, stepping up the style on their digits and, for our benefit, documenting their creativity on Instagram and Twitter along the way.
Browse through our gallery and tell us which celebs hit the nail(s) on the head in 2012.

Ke$ha topped the list of our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoos a few weeks back when she proudly displayed her inner lip ink reading “Suck It” on instagram. But now the dollar-signed-one might have some competition in Miley Cyrus, who was seen today showing off her new Theodore Roosevelt-inspired tattoo. We say “might,” because honestly we’re not sure how to feel about it. Body art inspired by our 26th president isn’t something we come across on a regular basis. On one hand, we guess it’s a pretty cool quote taken from a 1910 speech in which he said “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” But on the other hand…what? And furthermore, WTF? We know you’re just being Miley, but damn. Maybe she’s still feeling the patriotism from her 4th of July festivities. Head on down to the gallery below to see more celebrity tattoos that left us scratching our heads!

Ke$ha, you’ve won again. You always do. Though never with a disturbing orifice tattoo before. “New tattoo!” the singer proclaimed on Instagram, displaying both her new “Suck It!” inner lip tattoo and what appears to be a gold toof. While we need some time to wrap our heads around why and to what purpose Ke$ha would get the inside of her mouth inked (Is it a command? To whom? Is it a reminder? It’s a reminder, isn’t it?), we only needed to see the photo for a millisecond to crown her queen of the bad celebrity tattoos, joining the likes of Gucci Mane‘s ice cream cone face ink and Hayden Panettiere‘s misspelled torso tattoo.
Don’t feel bad, every other famous with an awful tattoo! We probably just don’t know about your mouth art yet. Let us know, please; it’s what Instagram is for. In the meantime, everyone else can take a gander at our worst celebrity tattoo gallery. With Ke$ha at the lead, it looks like ya’ll need to start upping your bad tattoo game…

Don’t you just hate it when that happens? Lily Allen seemed perfectly content with keeping her 2-month-old baby girl’s name under wraps, until her her mum blew it. Lily followed up her “Totes Amaze” tweet after giving birth late November with another message early December writing, “Thank you for all the flowers and lovely messages everybody. very touching indeed. nuff luv x x.” But tweets after that have given no indication of her daughter’s name. Until Lily’s mother, Alison Owen, slipped up on Facebook by messaging it to a friend. Ready for it? It’s properly old school and very charming. Lily’s baby girl’s name is … *drumroll* … Ethel Mary. What do you think? In the age of completely left-field baby names, we think this is refreshing.

Congratulations, Lily Allen! She gave birth to a baby girl right as the weekend rolled in and even tweeted a succinct update that read, “Totes amaze.” We don’t have any more details as yet but will post updates as soon as they’re released — like what baby girl’s name is. This has been such a good year for Lily. She married Sam Cooper earlier in July and sprung a totalÂ surprise on wedding guests by announcing that she was pregnant. We really are happy for the singer, especially considering that she’s suffered two miscarriages in the past. The second was last year in 2010, with Sam’s baby and the first was in 2008 with then-boyfriend, Ed Simons of the Chemical Brothers. That’s all in the past now, and we’re hoping Lily’s resting surrounded by her new family.
A couple years ago, Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse had more in common than just amazing pipes; they also both hit the nightlife. Hard. “I’ve had nights out with Amy and know exactly what used to go on. It’s so easy to get caught up in that madness,” Allen told British magazine Evening Standard this week, discussing Amy Winehouse’s death less than two months after the singer’s passing. “I could totally see why she didn’t want to leave her house. It seemed more appealing to stay in and take heroin. Why would anyone want that chaos in their life? It’s not something anyone chooses.” Personally, we maaaaaybe wouldn’t have tried to rationalize heroin use while talking about a friend’s death, but hey, it wouldn’t be a Lily Allen interview without some cringing. It’s like we’re in 2008 all over again.
While the singer’s family alleges that Amy Winehouse’s toxicology report indicated that there were no illegal drugs in her system when she passed on, Lily Allen seems certain she too could have fallen victim to a self-destructive lifestyle. “Actually, when Amy died, I got several texts from friends saying they were really glad I was still here. That I hadn’t died, too. It’s so easy to get caught up in that madness and I count my lucky stars I’ve been strong enough to walk away.” Not strong enough not to somehow make the conversation about herself, but certain on the way there.

A lovely Lily Allen married boyfriend Sam Cooper in a little church in Cranham, near Gloucester, England, just day before yesterday, on Saturday. The gown had a beautifully vintage feel to it with it’s Calais lace overlay, long sleeves, 1920′s veil and a three foot train. It was created by a French designer called Delphine Manivet who said, “Lily is a girl who is quite rock and roll, but her wedding she wanted to be traditional.”
It gets even better for the 26-year-old singer, because it turns out that Lily is pregnant as well, news which they delivered to wedding guests! Lily suffered a devastating miscarriage last year, and one before that in 2008 while dating Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers, so this must be especially healing for her. We wish the new couple and parents-to-be much joy! Congratulations! More pictures from the wedding below.

Tragic news to report today: twenty-five-year old singer, Lily Allen, who was six months pregnant, has lost her baby. The pop star was admitted to the hospital Thursday morning complaining of stomach pains and while in the hospital, she miscarried. A spokesperson for Allen and her boyfriend, Sam Cooper, stated, “It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper have lost their baby. The couple ask that their privacy be respected and that they be left alone at this deeply distressing time. No further comment will be made.”
