Nail inspiration from the 2013 MTV VMA’s

Thursday, 29 August 2013

Our nail expert, Chi Chi, is never short on ideas for new designs. This week she took inspiration from the fashion at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and Jennifer Hudson’s outfits were the talk of the town, so it’s only right that we put a beauty spin on them. How gorgeous are these nails?!
