The Black Diamond Trend

Let's chat about the $250,000 elephant in the room, the black diamond manicure.  Kelly Osbourne revealed the talked about polish at the Emmy Awards this past Sunday causing a twitter uproar.  Fans are berating her for the absurd amount of money the manicure costs, however, Ms. Osbourne sees no reason to regret her nail decor, nor should she. Jeweler Azature, the creator of the polish was merely styling the E! reporter with the polish, consisting of 267 carats of black diamonds, just as Brad Goreski would style Gweneth Paltrow in the latest couture gown.

Kelly's black diamond polish is not the only black diamond trending. British designer Debbie Wingham constructed an evening gown encrusted with 50 two carat black diamonds worth an estimated £3.5m. The dress debuted at the Billionaires' Club in Monaco and ended its circuit at Ukraine Fashion Week.

We've seen much worse including Lady Gaga's recent fur exposé, seemingly  a direct shot at PETA. Plus we can all agree that manicures are the new form of personal expression. Ciaté debuted their 'caviar' manicure earlier this year, not using actual caviar nonetheless. The style of posh nails is merely a way of feeling decadent without busting the bank. No need to fret though, a lower priced version of the black diamond polish is available for $25 per bottle, with a much lower carat count, at Fred Segal. Happy painting!!
