For Lady Gaga's now-iconic grey-lady cover for the September issue of Vanity Fair—the one styled by the uncredited Nicola Formichetti—the Gaga's nails were painted a soft shade of grey. Remember when grey was the nail varnish color-du-jour? Well, move over old grey, there's a new grey in town. Famed manicurist-to-the-stars Deborah Lippmann painted Gaga's nails with her newest creamy grey shade: Waking Up In Vegas. Have nails like putty yourself, for $16 at [Racked Inbox]
