One of the things most frequently associated with rock 'n' roll is nail art. JK. Well-manicured digits are hard to maintain when you're thrashing a guitar, but it looks like nail art has finally made its way to the merch table anyway—thanks to Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss and Rad Nails (founded by MTV Style alum Chrissy Mahlmeister, NBD *hair flip*). With the help of her nail artist, Ria Lopez, Krauss has designed a killer set of custom nail wraps inspired by Sleigh Bells' most recent album, Bitter Rivals, and we are PUMPED.
"I had loved what Chrissy was doing," Krauss told Nylon, "and one day I was brainstorming with Ria about how we could incorporate band merch that was also really friendly to women. I think merchandise tends to be a very male-dominated world, and a lot of girls come to our shows. I wanted to do something for them that's different than a T-shirt or a tank."
