V Magazine Gaga Memo No. 7

Hello! As you all obviously know, I love nail art.  And I have mentioned a bunch of times that I am obsessed with Lady Gaga.  What happens when those two worlds collide? 1. This blog. 2. Pure joy.  Recently Lady Gaga wrote an article about the importance of having your nails look good, a topic I know every single one of you can agree with!

Does that nail pose look familiar? :-P


HOLD ON. BEFORE YOU READ, THIS YOU MUST BE AWARE THAT MANICURES ARE EXTREMELY UNDERRATED! YOU MAY ALREADY BE ROLLING YOUR EYES, BUT PLEASE LET ME GET A WORD IN ABOUT THIS!

I find that any woman—no matter how stylishly she is dressed—is instantly above the rest if well-manicured. I know this may sound harsh, but perhaps if I beat it into you, you will CUT THOSE CUTICLES. TAKE the time for yourself, do it more frequently, just to stay in a nice self-compassionate habit. Grab a coffee and a magazine, this moment is just for you. Also, if you d on’t have the money, doing it at home by yourself is an excellent hobby (spring for fun nail products to make this more enjoyable), and tell your friends that manicure-related products make good gifts! If you are not pressed for cash, find and kidnap the best nail technician in your city and make her your best friend (when you’re trying to close that deal with Coca-Cola, your shiny talons will come in handy, I promise).

SIX REASONS YOU SHOULD DO THIS:
1) HAVING A PERFECT MANICURE INSTANTLY MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN.
2) YOU’LL BE READY FOR SEX OR TO PUT A PENIS IN YOUR HAND.
3) IT’S A WAY FOR YOU TO EXPRESS YOURSELF (CAREFUL HOW YOU DO THAT).
4) IT FORCES YOU TO SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF.
5) IT BOOSTS YOUR SELF-ESTEEM EVERYDAY.
6) IT PROJECTS AN IMAGE OF SUCCESS, WHICH IS GOOD FOR BIZ.

So, for my dear veteran salon goers, I’m including some more adventurous options and tips on how I like to do my nails. Thank you to my amazing manicurists, Aya, Emma, Marian, and Deborah, for always taking care of my prims. And to Freddie for gluing on my nails, Brandon for telling me when I need a manicure, and Tara for telling me I don’t.

P.S. Ladies in lights, in the magazines, and on red carpets—know that I am judging your cuticles…but that’s about it.

  4. I agree that one should always (or at least most of the time) should have well-manicured nails. It looks nice and shows that you take care of yourself. But how on earth does it make you ready for sex? That's just weird.
