Alexis Krauss is all about the nails, girl.

Fashion and music are the funniest-looking twin sisters. They're always together, always kinda sloppy. Sometimes they dress up like a swan or wear a big mouse head. Together, they're always looking to make a bold statement. If you follow Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss on Instagram (@KraussingAround), you know what she's trying to say through fashion these days: It's all about your your nails, girl.

Krauss has taken her love of nails a bit further than the normal rock star. She even invited Ria Lopez, her 24-year-old manicurist, aboard the S.S. Coachella.

The Sleigh Bells singer lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where Lopez's mom owns a shop, Maritza's.

"One day, I just popped in," Krauss says, "and we initially started doing very traditional manicures, and then I would come in and go, 'Can you try this?' And Ria just kept getting more adventurous and creative. "We spent more and more time together and then I would bring her on photo shoots, video shoots. Now she just has her own totally unique thing going."
