Lorde’s Dip-Dyed Fingers Were The Best Nail Art Performance Of The Grammys

She brings new meaning to “exorcism chic.”

1. At the 2014 Grammys, Lorde looked like a more grown-up version of her usual teen goth self.

Her pants even had pleats in them! And her hair was decidedly less ’90s-Noxzema-girl-gone-goth and a little more fresh-from-the-Drybar.

2. And it was the first time someone out in the wild actually attempted the dip-dyed fingertips look…

Lorde’s still got edge, y’all!

3. Which has appeared in various runway shows.

Here they are at Mara Hoffman’s A/W 2012 show.

6. And apparently in V Magazine as well.

7. But what I really want to know is HOOOOWWWW do you get this manicure??

8. Handling charcoal briquettes?

9. Chain-smoking?


10. Performing an oil change?

11. Pressing your fingers into an inkpad?

12. Pen explosion?

13. Actual frostbite?

14. Lorde, please teach us your dark-hearted ways.
