And on May 30, the single talon designed by nail tech Aya Fukuda sold for a whopping…[drum roll please] $13,000 (£8,500, to be exact). Gasp!
The nail was recovered from the Aviva Stadium stage in Dublin by a crew member after Lady Gaga finished a performance on the Born This Way Ball tour. Kind of makes you celebrity nail techs want to “accidentally” forget the nail glue with your clients, take the fallen nail masterpiece home, and list it for auction, huh?
I hope Lady Gaga’s nail tech charges accordingly in the future…by my calculations, that’s $130,000 for a full set!
