Kelly Osbourne defends pricey Emmy manicure
Kelly Osbourne is typically the one dishing out the fashion critiques on the Emmy red carpet. But this year, she was the target of some fashion policing over a $250,000 manicure that some considered wasteful and tacky. Now she's taking the opportunity to defend herself.
"I see that my nail polish has offended some of you, however I see your point, but it was a once in a lifetime experience. #MyApologizes," she tweeted. "And please forgive me for not regretting it. It made me feel like a queen!"

Osbourne was the person who brought attention to the manicure, posting an Instagram photo and writing, "About to get a $250k manicure w nail polish made w blk diamonds" before she reported for E! on the Emmy red carpet. "I have a big mouth & i know it! I just don't like knowing that I have unintentionally offended anyone! If its intentional I don't give a S***," she wrote.
Not everyone accepted her defense. "A $250knail polish isn't classified as an 'experience,'" responded one fan. "It cld hve fed a 3rd world country."
Other comments complained that she spent more on her nails than they'd need to pay off their homes. "In my world, that is the price of a small house."
"Given the state of the economy and the fact that there are families that can't even afford to feed their children, it was excessive, wasteful, and very poor timing," wrote another, while some took issue with the fact that it didn't live up to the price tag. "What's wrong with plain old glitter nail polish? It looks the same, anyway."

Osbourne explained that she wasn't spending her own money on the Azature manicure, which contained 267 carats of black diamonds.
"No I did not pay for it. I was just lucky enough to be the one that got picked to wear it," she tweeted.
