Did anyone else notice Jennifer Lopez's nails last night during the 55th Annual Grammy Awards? CoverGirl partnered exclusively with E! Entertainment to produce a mani cam that displayed every celeb's manicure so we got an up close & personal look at J.Lo's gold leaf encrusted nail art.

Long, pointy nails have been trending for a while, but I have to admit, I'm not really sure I can embrace this look 100%.
