For her appearance on Good Morning America, Lady Gaga dressed as a human condom to talk about safe sex. We're not entirely sure how her gray dagger nails fit the concept, but they definitely made a statement. Katy Perry is known for her wacky manicures, so it's to be expected that she'd start sporting dagger nails. In fact, she took it to new lengths with these unwieldy gold talons.

Thinking of trying the look yourself? Rihanna's manicurist, Kimmie Kyees, recently told InStyle that "long, pointy nails elongate fingers, making them look nice and slender." Her one requirement? "You have to be fearless!"
