While British performer Laura Mvula and singer-songwriter Solange (with a surprise appearance from big sis Beyonce) took to the main stage Saturday at Coachella, there was a private surprise show by Ramona Lisa (otherwise known as Caroline Polachek, one half of New York-based duo Chairlift) at STYLEBOP.com's laid-back barbecue brunch in Palm Springs. During the artist's performance, we couldn't help but notice her ultra-cool nail art featuring a drawn-on eye on each finger.
After her set, Pret-a-Reporter chatted with the New Yorker, who wore a white laser-cut outfit by threeASFOUR, to find out the deal behind her digit dusters. "I did them. I do it before every show so I've gotten pretty good at it," said Polachek, who used Essie's white and green nail polishes, as well as a nail art pen for the black outlines. "It takes me about an hour." Also spotted on her left hand? An engagement ring; she tells us she'll be getting married "next year in September. Hopefully in the hills of the North East."
Polachek, who recently released her first solo album, Arcadia, under the alias Ramona Lisa, also shared that this year's Coachella experience was her first. "I'm actually performing with Blood Orange [on Sunday]," said the vocalist, who is featured on B.O.'s track "Chamakay." Added Polachek: "Dev [Hynes] and I have been friends for years." Hynes, who performs under the Blood Orange moniker, also was spotted mingling with guests at the intimate bash hosted by DJ Harley Viera-Newton and designer Langley Fox Hemingway.
With so many performers lined up at Coachella, it was hard for Polachek to decide who she was most excited to see. The songstress exclaimed: "I'm excited to see everybody."
