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.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
