According to the Daily Mail, each of Beyonce’s individual nails costs nearly $87 (yes, $87 per nail), which means a full set of them costs close to $900. The nails, designed by makeup artist and jewelry designer duo H&H nails, come from a line of 2D and 3D metal designs that play off of the two designers’ experience with theatrical makeup and metal production. And B isn’t the only celeb to discover these unique designs—Rihanna and others have also been seen in these nails (bolder versions from the line include nails with 3D ants on them and even spiderwebs).

When I hear about this kind of extravagance, the first thing that comes to my mind is how many shelter animals could that $800 have saved.  But when it comes down to where the rubber meets the asphalt, it's HER money and she has a right to spend it however she wants. And who knows, maybe she's involved in charitable contributions we don't know about.

At any rate, I'm totally over Beyonce - IMO, she's so 2007.  Why are we even discussing this, lol?!?

The money was transferred to her, which means it is HER money. She can do whatever she wants with it. She earned it, not you!! Stop being jealous freaks! No one is telling you how to spend your money!

To all the people hating on Bey, get a life!  It's for a VIDEO, people.  A one-time shot thing.  Folks have done mini-movies spending even more than that on a prop.  Are y'all  complaining??  It's what it is.  THE BUSINESS!!!  ENTERTAINMENT!  She isn't like that in real life --- she's just like the rest of us.  She just happens to be talented!  Do I hear "jealousy" and "envy" in the wind?  The media blows stuff all out of proportion, just to sell magazines and newspapers and get all the haters in an uproar.  Tsk!  Tsk!  Mind your own business and stay out of hers!  No wonder celebrities hate paparazzi!!!

What a waste! Just because you have money and can afford it, does not mean you have to spend this amount of money on nails. Boy, today I listened to a radio show that talked about some of the over-paid sports figures who are now flat broke because of their spending habits. Not to say that she and her husband will be broke, but seriously, a $900 manicure - was it really necessary? I think not. No fiscal responsibility shown at al.

These celebrities are either too arrogant or too stupid to care that they are total hypocrites. With their $800 nails and $8,000 makeup jobs (Scarlett Johanssen) I really resent their involvement in politics when you and I know they couldn't give you the name of our first three presidents.  Ignorance is going to destroy this country.  Btw, beware the celebs who avoid Fox News reporters - it means they can't string a coherent thought together.  They think snarky attitudes disguise their lack of knowledge.  It doesn't disguise it - it proves it.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days.
