Rihanna has a lot of people to thank for her fame, fortune, and fashion-icon status. But while her outfits are usually stealing the headlines, she makes sure to thank a very important woman on her Twitter feed: Her manicurist. Take a look at some of Rihanna’s best manicures, as well as the mastermind behind hers and many other stars’ amazing nails, below.
Nail goddess to the stars (like Katy Perry, Pink and Nicki Minaj to name a few) a woman named Kimmie Kyees is the artist behind Rihanna’s most notable nail looks, and her work speaks for itself. Those nails, shiny black half-moons on matte-black tips, are pretty epic. And while Rihanna’s nails are always a little more decorative than they are functional, they’re definitely great for inspiration! Just because we can’t go see Kimmie ourselves doesn’t mean we can’t steal her ideas! Take a look at some of Rihanna’s best nail looks from over the years in the gallery.
