There was no shortage of creative manicures at the 2012 MTV EMAs in Germany last nightKim Kardashian and Rita Ora matched their digits to their dresses: Kardashian lacquered up in an inky noir to complement her Stephane Rolland design, while Ora tried red lace nail art to play off her Marchesa ballgown. Meanwhile, Heidi Klum and Gwen Stefani also used their outfits as nail inspiration: Klum opted for a bejeweled metallic design, drawing from the studded detail of her Versace lace-up dress, while Stefani added a crisp white statement nail to her two-tone Jean Paul Gaultier outfit. We love how the contrasting hues stand out against their outfits without creating a too-busy effect. Take a closer look at their nails, and see more celebrity manicures in our gallery!
