Lady Gaga's manicurist Ayak Fukuda opened up about working with Gaga, creating the "Gaga" shape, which are her recent, overly long talons and other assorted Gaga'ian topics.
On her collaborative process with Gaga: "Lady Gaga gives me so much inspiration. When designing her nails I always keep in mind her eccentric yet glamorous style. When I come up with designs I feel represent her, I'll show Gaga and we go with them if she approves."
On creating Gaga's hot new stiletto manicure: "We call this shape the 'sexy Gaga shape.' Gaga wanted a very pointy, sexy-shaped nail, so I created this shape based on her request."
On creating Gaga's nails for the "Born This Way" video: "I really loved what I did for Lady Gaga in 'Born this Way.' I used a vibrant red and black polish from Priti NYC and finished it off with Swarovski crystals in jet color and silver metal."
On what she and Gaga will be doing next: "My next big project is something I can't talk about just yet . . . The inspiration and ideas I come up with for Lady Gaga are endless. I already have so many new and fresh ideas which I have plans to use very soon."
