Fans of Rihanna’s flashy Grammy Awards nails will have the opportunity to get their hands on a limited edition bottle of the 24-karat gold “Amor 24” polish she sported to the February 12 ceremony.
During the recent awards ceremony the singer’s hands earned as much attention as the plunging Emporio Armani dress she co-designed thanks to the varnish, which retails at $5,000.
At-home gel manicure company Red Carpet Manicure created the product, with Style Watch reporting that a few limited edition bottles of the actual varnish will go to charity auction before a more affordable version of “Amor 24” hits RedCarpetManicure.com this spring for $9.99.
Rihanna, who customised her gold nails with tiny dollar signs, isn’t the only star to have favoured flashy digits of late.
Katie Holmes and Blake Lively have also been seen wearing gold varnish, while Madonna showcased gold and black patterned talons during her 2012 Super Bowl halftime performance earlier this month.
Brands including NARS and Sally Hansen have also been offering their own takes on the trend, while Sephora by OPI’s As Good As Gold Collection comprises five fashion-forward gold colours.
Other stars who impressed with their nail choices at the Grammys include Katy Perry, Robyn and Adele. Adele painted her talons with shiny silver polish with bright red on the inner side of her nails in what has been dubbed a “Louboutin Manicure” as it resembles the iconic red-soled shoe.
