Rebel Nails: Hollywood's Newest Manicure Trend Kelly Rowland
Something's been catching our eye in recent weeks. Normally, celebs sport manicures in a rainbow of colors. But lately, something been a bit off. Not a lot off, but one nail off.

We've seen Vanessa Hudgens, Rumer Willis and Kelly Rowland with eight fingers painted one shade, then one nail on each hand painted a contrasting color. We wanted to get to the bottom of this so we chatted with green celebrity nail stylist Jenna Hipp about the reason behind the trend. She said:
When I was working with Jessica Alba for her Cosmo cover, she showed up with 8 nails painted grey and her two pointer fingers painted maroon. I asked her 'Jess, why are these two nails a different color?' Her reply? 'Why not?'

Nail polish is a very easy way to rock a pop of color that shows off a spunky personality. Celebs have hair/makeup/wardrobe departments responsible for how they look, so they don't get as much say in the matter as you may think! A bright nail is a fun, easy way for them to feel a little rebellious and not so uniform. With nail polish being such a huge hit right now, of course they should experiment! 'Why not?'
So, what do you think, are you going to buck conformity and paint your nails in different colors?
