Lady Gaga's Nail Artist Dishes on Her "Born This Way" Mani

Aya Fukuda is the nail artist behind Lady Gaga's latest talon nails which they've coined the "sexy Gaga shape," and she's also the one who created the intergalactic "Born This Way" manicures. Here Aya tells us what it's like to work with Gaga, how they come up with crazy new designs that push the boundaries, and what exactly was on Lady G's nails in that video . . .

On how she started working with Lady Gaga: "Hair Room Service called me for Lady Gaga. Hair Room Service is a company I work with based in NYC that provides house calls throughout the city."

Keep reading . . .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. Making nails for her is so much fun and truly a piece of art."

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 "Born This Way": "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 colour 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."
