Rihanna's Flashy Fingertips: From Nail Art to Neon and Glitter, Is There a Nail Trend She Hasn't Tried? (GALLERY)
Rihanna's nails are as much a part of her look as her ever-changing hair.
Never without a statement-making mani, the "Diamonds" singer treats her nails as one of her most important accessories.
But Rihanna doesn't just try the latest nail trends, she sets them, from neon nails to glittery designs and french manicures with flair.
Like her outfits and hairstyles, the singer's nails channel the mood of her music at the moment, but one thing stays consistent: their long, oval shape.Lady Gaga with her creative nail art, the great thing about Rihanna's many manicures is that they're not just about making a statement. Sure, she'll rock smiley faces and long black nails, but her fingertips would never be mistaken for talons thanks to their feminine form.

Thought recently the pop star has been coordinating her nails with the rest of her outfit to fit the more sophisticated style she's been sporting while promoting her new album "Unapologetic," Rhi Rhi has sported plenty of fingertip flair over the years.
