RIP ManiCam, 2012-2015.

Posted on

E!'s ManiCam debuted September 23, 2012.

It was the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and stars were given the chance to show-off their nail art, their jewelry... their under-appreciated hand modeling skills.

It was the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and stars were given the chance to show-off their nail art, their jewelry... their under-appreciated hand modeling skills.
