Hey guys! Omg, there’s a cunnt video that just dropped, and I am pretty sure you guys saw it! How are we loving the new, Katy Perry music video “Dark Horse” featuring Juicy J?!! Uh-huh honey ^~^
Before anything, whether you like the words of the song or not, lets keep it trill: the beat alone was good enough for me, which is what drew my attention to the song. Then, I was all “Team K.Perry!” to finally see the visuals where, Katy Channel’s her inner “Memphis- Egyptian Goddess” persona that was demonstrated in a really cool modern way. For the most part, I really enjoyed how the concepts where from our past history, yet in between scenes the director added portrayals of current lifestyles’ being represented from different social groups- one being the different nail art manicures Katy wore. (Decode the social groups: Go look at the official video below!!)
In retrospect to my new , Katy Perry “Dark Horse” attraction, below is a video of how you can trick your claws out, if you intent on turning your inspiration physical, lol!! (Shout out to, HelloMaphie for this!) :

Once again, adding to the growing list of DIY nail art goodies featured here on the, Cunnt Claws’ website- we could’nt be more stoked to present you with yet another yummy treat! (Hint…hint: just in time for the holidays).
Stimulating nothing but desire: Brooklyn native, Ria Lopez (Ria Nailz) teams up with American pop star, Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells to give us some fun printed nail art wrap exclusively for New York’s nail art brand, Rad Nails. Here to represent the Bitter Rival nails wraps, nail artist Ria Lopez chats with us:
Give us the inside scoop that stem the collaboration between you and Rad Nails?
The collaboration came about, because Alexis and I were discussing what would be a good way to give women something more then just a t-shirt at their Sleigh Bells shows. We felt like it would be cool to have something different specifically for women, and what better way then nail wraps!
Freaking love the complementary colors of the, pink and yellow color coordination. Individually, which single nail design is your favorite?
I don’t have a single favorite. Alexis and I designed them with all of them being our favorites!
Describe your signature nail art style? And how did these sets of nail wraps represent that?
The nail wraps were inspired by, Sleigh Bells album cover artwork- which is two bad ass guitars; one pink and one yellow with tiger stripes. I don’t think I have a signature nail art style but I do try to make some; tuff, fun, badass nails and these nail wraps definitely represented that.
When coming up with the ideas for designs- what kind of customer was the intended target?
Our target customers were, all of the women and girls that come out to the Sleigh Bells show and they don’t have a “RiaNailz” with them.
Will there be more nail wraps from, Ria Nailz?
I don’t have any plans right now to make more nail wraps, but who knows what 2014 will bring.
Folks clutch these nail wraps, so you too can have some “RiaNailz”!!!!
