Lady Gaga has always been ahead of the talon trends after bursting onto the pop scene and putting the beauty spotlight firmly on wacktacular nails. She's long teamed her infamous outfits with equally headline-worthy manicures from stiletto-length designs covered in pretty bows to sharp grey claws. So it’s no wonder that for her latest column for V Magazine has Gaga dishing on the many reasons why manicures are so important for, well, a Lady.
As the bonkers songstress warns in her opening paragraph: ‘BEFORE YOU READ THIS YOU MUST BE AWARE THAT MANICURES ARE EXTREMELY UNDERRATED!’ We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
