Dita’s Signature Moon Manicure, On The Cheap And Easy
After seeing a familiar image of Dita Von Teese sitting front-row at the Spring ’09 Couture shows, we used this blog to posit a simple question that had been weighing on us since she first emerged to herald the second coming of burlesque: the alabaster powdered skin, the red lips, the filled-in brows, the perfectly set raven locks; doesn’t the whole thing just get exhausting at a certain point? That’s a whole lot of daily maintenance in the name of staying in character. So who can blame her for cutting a corner or two where possible? At the personal request of Ms. Von Teese, Kiss Products—the leader in artificial nail design—has created an exclusive set of nails in her signature red moon manicure. These oval-shaped white and burgundy tips now provide a quick, easy, chip-free alternative to the weekly manicures that must be necessary to keep her fingers looking flawless at all times. Whether or not it’s an indication the Dita will be slipping into a pair of skinny jeans and a T-shirt anytime soon is debatable, but it could be good news for the rest of us if Kiss decides to make the coveted style available at drugstores nationwide. Fingers crossed.
