Fashionable nails + nail art.
Nail polish fanatic: here you'll find only photos/colors I like. Posts are queued to appear every two hours.
Credit whenever possible, unless the source doesn't credit. I'm always looking for the origin of orphaned photos, so if you know of one, let me know.
Viva la lacquer!
Let me begin this post by saying how excited I am for the next album—Born This Way! With a whole new Gaga era comes a whole new bunch of manicures to match, so what better way to commemorate the upcoming 2011 release than to close out a chapter with her previous album covers.
Hopefully a new camera is in order for me soon, but in the meantime you will have to take my word for it; these were far better in-person. The Fame hand would sparkle with every movement and the “bloody tears” drip on the accent nail of The Fame Monster (modeled after the alternate album cover) was slightly raised and shiny—enough to resemble actual liquid. The colors and materials used were quite simple. Black, white, and grey (‘Kiss Me Here’ by Pure Ice) polishes along with clear and light blue glass rhinestones.
It’s November already, so the Born This Way cover art and the first single are just around the corner! (Last I heard they were talking about releasing the first single in December. Obviously that’s subject to change, but it’s so close now!) I will be painting my nails in anticipation!

Half-moon manicures at Ruffian. This look like an updated vintage look — this type of contrast (but reversed, with the tips and moons unpainted) was the only socially acceptable way to paint one’s nails in early days.
