Celebrity Nail Watch – CMAs

Just to clarify, I am NOT a country music fan (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but that damn Carrie Underwood song, Before He Cheats, does get stuck in my head. Regardless, I couldn’t help but check out the Country Music Awards arrivals to see what the gals were wearing on their nails. I’ll admit that I had a little prejudice going in, expecting to see french manicures and pale nails everywhere but much to my surprise, it was vampy night at the CMAs.

Don’t quote me on this but it’s looks
like Jewel is sporting a dark purple creme.

Martina McBride in classic black and white with smokey sexy eyes

Maybe it’s just me but I think Jessica Harp has too much black and sparkle going on

I’m going out on a wire and saying that Sara Buxton is wearing a gunmetal gray shimmer

I’m not even going to ask why Kate Walsh was
there. I’m just going to envy her gorgeousness and bronzed tips

Heidi Newfield sported a big fall color, red. It works with her look even
though her outie belly button freaks me out!

Rissi Palmer’s black nails are proof that either the fashion mags are wrong and
black polish is still in or that no one has told Nashville yet.

And was it just me or did the rest of the red carpet look like the American Idol rejects show (Carrie Underwood excluded)? Phil Stacey, Bucky Covington, Kellie Pickler… What, no Sanjaya?? Certainly the hospitable people of the south could throw him some love.

    Look at all those dark nails! That’s so hot! Ugh, but sooo high maintenance for my every day life. :(

    I’m still kicking myself for not getting the name of that Essie shade, btw.

    Oh dear – outie belly button + sheer satin dress = disaster. I wonder whether one of those stick-on things you’re meant to use to hide protruding nipples would help in this case?

    TBH, I actually like the red best, although everyone’s short, dark nails look reliably fabulous.

    Heidi Newfield….

    ewww. is she pregnant in a kind of flat way, or is it just a very unflattering dress?

    I don’t really get the attraction of dark nails myself, not the real black ones anyways. Maybe I am just too self conscious to wear it myself :)

    But looking around not many women seem able to pull it off.
