Jordin Sparks's Nail Polish at the Super Bowl XLII

Love It or Hate It? Jordin Sparks's Black-Tip Manicure

Last night at the Super Bowl XLII, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks walked out onto the Arizona field to sing a very smooth and soulful "Star-Spangled Banner." For the most part I thought she looked great with her center part and loose waves, her iridescent pinky/purple eye shadow, and her understated black dress. But her silvery white and black-tipped manicure was questionable. What did you think of it?

please! all you anti-goth people are just mean. Remember the Chanel black nail polish crazy? That was the Thing to have! I'm all for ending the stereotype of black nailpolish.

This too funny. I told my boyfriend she looked great except for the tacky ba-hind nails.

fake nails look cheep to me. a nice short red or nude nail looks so much more chic.

this reminds me of those girls in high school who had the big thick acrylic nails and would change the color of the tips like every week...i've always thought it looked trashy

Hmm..may like it better if the base were closer to her tone/beige-brown. Okay for her, I guess.

While I personally wouldn't have gone for the black tips, it was edgy and she put forth an amazing performance!!

I don't like the look. Any other color would look fine but I don't like the black.

That manicure style I would do or even pay someone why is her face orange looking compared to her hand?

I love her nails. If she were a decade or so older I would say they're ghetto or trashy but hey, she's still a teenager. When I was her age I thought a regular french manicure was for either a conservative event or for older women lol. She wore a great dress and looked fantastic so a little funk in her look kept her looking age appropriate, at least IMHO.

Love them... Plus her dress was conservative so with the edgy nails.. the look totally worked!

I forgot to add that her eye makeup is beautiful, whoever did that did an amazing job.

Personally I find it tacky and borderline trashy. It looks like she has dirt under her nails. I've never been a fan of colored tips, or tips with glitter. I say if you want to be creative, do it on your toes. I thought the whole black nail polish was finally over? It would have looked better solid black than just the tips. Granted, she is 18, so most people will give her a pass on it. The last time I did anything wild with my nails was when I was 15, now I look back at pictures and wonder what I was thinking! What's wrong with a french manicure? It always looks neat and classy, and it never clashes. Provided it's done properly, not too long or thick, or has those weird indented ends.

I hate this. I've seen this on others and from a distance it looks like they've chipped off their polish.

doesn't look too bad. if the tips were longer, it would look HORRIFIC. i don't get why this girl always looks 30 going on 50. considering her age, it's frightening. she doesn't have that fresh-faced look.

Not a fan. It just looks odd to me.
