When Rihanna stepped onstage at the 2016 VMAs to accept the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, there were two things on everyone's mind. Number one: Thank god Drake finally admitted his love. Number two: Where can I buy Rihanna's pink nail polish?
According to celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees, who did Rihanna's nails for Sunday's festivities, Rihanna's 2016 VMAs nail polish is Red Carpet Manicure's 1-Step LED Gel Polish in Hopeless Romantic, which only costs $12.99. That means you can totally copy her VMAs manicure with very little guilt.
“We wanted to find a color that would match any outfit and makeup changes she may have throughout the show," said Kyees in a press release. "We chose a beautiful mauve color with a subtle shimmer that looks gorgeous against her skin tone.”
Rihanna is definitely known for having perfectly painted nails, so it makes sense that she would choose an absolutely perfect nail color for the VMAs. It not only looked good with Rihanna's various outfits and her dark lipstick as she accepted her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, but it also is super easy to apply. According to Kyees, she didn't even need a base coat or top coat. You simply paint one coat of the color, cure it under the LED light for 30 seconds, and voila! A perfect pink mani.
