For one of the nail looks she requested that Deborah give her double nails. Imagine one nail on top of the other, in a sort of bird beak configuration–this was achieved using tips one on top of the other with a small dab of acrylic on the nail bed to hold it on. Gaga called one nail the host and the other the parasite.
