The opening for Gaga’s Workshop at Barney’s included street performers, $95 chocolate heels and an inflatable Gaga head, but all we can think about are Naomi Yasuda’s nails Nail artist Naomi Yasuda has held hands with the likes of Lilo, Courtney Love, Ricky Martin, Steve Tyler and Lady Gaga. Like her extravagant nail clients, Yasuda believes nothing is “too extreme” when it comes to nail art. And now a press-on version of her wild talent is available at Lady Gaga’s Workshop, which opened this week at Barney’s. Yasuda has some trippy nails to match all the circus madness that Lady Gaga stirred up for her psychotic and fabulous pop up shop. Starting at the "mellow” end of the spectrum ($25-$45) Yasuda's nails will have the tips of your digits stacked high with Swarovski crystals and studs, or laced with gold and silver chains and bold colors. At the other end of the spectrum, nail art enters a whole other galaxy of fantastic Gaga-esque excess with Yasuda bespoke trio that took 2 months to complete. Hand-cut and painted cherry red flames are detailed with semi-precious gems and crystals. Zigzag cut nails look like some wild interpretation of Cubism. And charms of unicorns, guns, skyscrapers, and Lady Libery adorn pointed gold nails that border on weaponry. The extravagant sets can be yours for $225 each. Check out Naomi Yasuda nails for the Barney’s x Lady Gaga Workshop below and while you’re letting them set read up on how Editor Mish Way handled her fake nails.
