A besotted Monster – the name given to Gaga’s fans – paid for the black acrylic nail featuring detailed gold embellishments at an auction.A eagle-eyed member of Gaga’s crew found the unique nail after a concert in Dublin last year and promptly put it up for sale online.
The Edge of Glory star wore the nails at the launch of her Fame perfume and during her Born This Way ball tour.
In the official auction listing, the crew member explained: “I noticed an object on the floor of the stage, which at first I thought was a guitar plectrum. When I picked it up, I saw it was an acrylic nail.”
It’s not the first time one of Gaga’s eager fans – who she affectionately calls her Little Monsters – has paid good money for a piece of the star.
In 2010, a Russian billionaire reportedly paid a cool $1 million to feature alongside the Grammy Award winner in her nine-minute Alejandro music video.
