Now that you've gone through our VMAs beauty and fashion polls , it's time to take a closer look at what the stars were wearing on their nails. From bedazzled nail art to shimmery silver polish, there are plenty of interesting manicures to behold.
Nicki Minaj sure loves color, and her multitoned manicure was absolutely rife with it.
