The television personality walked the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards with one crazy expensive accessory, and it wasn’t jewelery: her black diamond manicure! What do you think of wearing such luxurious polish? Wasteful or tasteful? Vote below!
Kelly Osbourne, 27, posted a pic of her nail polish on Instagram, with the caption, ‘I’m s***ting myself to have that much money on my nails!’ Kelly’s decorative digits contained a whopping 267 carats in black diamonds!
The tiny bottle of varnish, by Los Angeles-based luxury jeweler, Azature, was released last month; and so far, Jennifer Lopez is the only other person to have worn it. Kelly told E! on the red carpet: ‘I’ve been so scared to touch anything because its powdered black diamonds… worth $250,000. I’m the only person they let wear it, it’s in a safe upstairs in the hotel room. I couldn’t believe it. I have not touched a thing all day.’
Celebrity stylist, Nicolas Bru, responsible for Kelly’s quarter-of-a-million dollar manicure, and her Zac Posen gown, explained: ‘I was very inspired by the neo-goth looks presented on the runways this fall, and I wanted to mix that up with red carpet glamour.’
While just one bottle of the 267-carat nail polish was produced, other $25 versions of the ritzy design went on sale in September.
Azature, the mononymous designer behind the brand, said that the black diamond is the ‘ultimate fine jewel’. He added: ‘One day, I thought, “why not showcase this style on nails?” So I developed a Black Diamond Nail Polish with the same attention and quality as my jewelry in order to preserve the elegance of the black diamond.’
