We’re only a few days into the new year, and the creative nail art trend of 2012 is something that’s definitely carrying over. Celebrities are continuing to get creative with their manicures, like Gabrielle Union, Taylor Swift, and Zoe Saldana, who all went the matchy-matchy route, coordinating their nails and outfits. Union matched her digits to her silver dress, Swift painted the town (and her nails!) red at her New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square, and Saldana mirrored the green tones in her Pucci number with a dark olive lacquer.

It seems that puppies were a very popular holiday gift for lots of stars this year! Just a few months after losing her beloved 14-year-old poodle Pearl, former iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove received a new black-and-white fluffball she named Penelope (Penny for short, of course) for Christmas. “Most amazing surprise early Christmas gift
#penny #inlove,” she Tweeted. And Zoe Saldana also did a good deed over the holidays, taking in a rescue dog her best friend swiftly named Mugsy, and sharing her photo on Twitter.

HBO released another trailer for new season of Girls! While the newest sneak peek for Season 2 is only 56 seconds long—watch it above!—it is filled with plenty of heartfelt scenes shared between the four twenty-something women who make up the cast, courtesy of writer, director, and star Lena Dunham. “Everybody acts like I’m nuts,” Lena’s Hannah character says in the trailer. “I’m not nuts. I just want to feel it all.” And if the song playing in the background is any indication, Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen,” we’re in for another wild (yet realistic) ride through the tumultuous twenties. Be sure to tune in to HBO on Sunday, January 13th at 9 p.m. to see what’s in store for our favorite Girls.
