Nail trends steal the show during Rip the Runway 2012
BET recently hosted its Rip the Runway 2012 event and although the hip hop clothes on display were fresh, many celebs had their eyes on a different trend - fashion forward manicures.
Fashion is always fierce at the runway show and everything was popping this year, from head to toe. Ladies who tend to dress in all black or an array of dark women's urban clothing can lighten up this spring by painting their nails in hot neon hues. From green to pink and orange, nails are a great and subtle way to make a splash.
Other nail trends seen on models during the shows included metallic hues, mixing prints by switching off each finger with a different shade and modern manicures - opting for a metallic, bright or pastel color instead of white.
Beyonce has taken a unique approach to the trend this season. The diva has been seen out and about wearing only blue nailpolish since the birth of daughter Blue Ivy.
The BoomBox.com reports the fun collections at Rip the Runway were accompanied by the music of some of the biggest hip hop stars in the game right now. Artists like Lil' Kim, Robin Thicke, Lil Wayne and Estelle offered up thrilling performances while models represented the clothes on the runway.
