We know celebs are constantly bashed for their over-the-top extravagance, but we never thought it would be over finger nails! Kelly Osbourne’s $250,000 manicure for the Emmys has been met with an onslaught of fan disapproval, causing the star to “sort of” apologize for her excess. Designed by jewelry brand Azature, the mani contained 267 carats of black diamonds, which enraged media and fans alike.
From the Emmys’ “Mani Cam” Osbourne’s giant cocktail ring outshined the sparkly black manicure, but the tips of her fingers may have been worth just as much as the bauble. What Osbourne probably thought was a moment of glamour, turned out to be the talk of the awards show, becoming a hot topic on Twitter as soon as the star posted a picture of her nails on Instagram.
One bottle of Azature’s black diamonds nail polish costs a whopping $250,000- an excess that not only seems unnecessary, but ridiculously exorbitant. Although Osbourne didn’t pay for the quarter million dollar mani, fans launched an attack, accusing her of being frivolous and insensitive to the current economic crises across the globe.
After the subsequent Twitter bashing, Osbourne finally relented with a sort of apology- tweeting “I see that my nail polish has offended some of you, however I see your point, but it was a once in a lifetime experience,” with the hashtag #MyApologizes. No word on where the 267 carats could be salvaged after the mani was removed!
