Nailed It: 21 Photos Of Pop Music's Wildest Manicures

A star's hands clutch microphones, tickle ivories, strum strings, and hold other stars' hands. Whether or not we think about, they are constantly on display. Webster defines "fingernail" as "the flattish horny envelope on the upper surface of the tip of each finger." That sounds unappealing. We prefer to think of nails are the artist's canvas—an extension of who they are, literally and figuratively.

We went digging for the best examples of how stars express themselves through nail art. Try to guess the artist without looking at their name. HINT: This game is impossible. Maybe you'll come up with some ideas for your own set of flattish horny envelopes. Just make sure to use them for good—we don't wanna see any cat fights!
