Rolling Stones Performance (12.15.12):Gaga joined The Rolling Stones on stage for their 50th anniversary concert, to perform Gimme Shelter with the group, whilst channeling Aladdin Sane in in a striped jumpsuit and massive platforms. Most notably, she debuted a fiberoptic light-up wig which flashes in time to the music. See a gif of it in action here!

Colors & Materials Used: Black, white, Celeb City silver and Golden-I (Sally Xtreme Wear), Snow Globe glitter (Sally Salon), and glow in the dark acrylic paint. Much more shimmery in-person!

Arriving in Tokyo (5.8.12): Back in May, Gaga arrived on her Tokyo tour stop looking perfectly polished, much to the delight of fans and fashion reviewers worldwide!

Colors & Materials Used: Rainbow stripes are Sun Kissed orange (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear), Cloud blue (Revlon), Bubblegum Pink (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear), and Spontaneous purple (China Glaze). I didn’t have the exact colors I wanted to match her hair, so all were given a coat of Petal Pusher nude (Sally Hansen Insta-Dri) once dry. Instant pastels!  Black portions were painted with a base coat of black, then rolled in black micro glitter before getting a top coat.

The photos don’t do these justice. It seems like strangers ask to see my nails the most when they’re rolled in micro glitter; way more eye-catching than glitter polish!
