Va Va Va Voom! Dita Von Teese Designed Sexy Red Nails!
Pick up her retro-glam nail tips for a little extra oomph in your life.
Dita Von Teese is known for her glam style that harkens back to old Hollywood Glamour. While some of her outfits can cost a pretty penny, you can pick up her nails for a song. Dita partnered with Kiss, a company that’s known for easy to apply nails and nail tips and created Dita Von Teese Nails by Kiss.
The nails are a stunning shade of red with a white half-moon. “I wanted to offer a shortcut to obtaining the nail style that I have been wearing for the last 20 years, and Kiss helped make it a reality,” said Dita.
The half-moon manicure was a big status symbol at one point. Said Dita, “I think it was a way of showing that you had someone take the time to DO your nails and perfectly paint a half-moon, rather than doing them yourself. If you look very, very closely, the most glamorous and iconic portraits of the 1930s and 1940s show the half-moon manicure.”
Want them for your very own? You can find them on Dita’s site ($9.99, dita.net) and they’re available at stops on her 2012 Burlesque: Hip Hip Hooray tour.
