Bright Eyes Gets His Nails Did

Here’s Mr. Bright Eyes dishing with Guitar World Acoustic (yes, we’re dorks) about the Saddle Creek Manicure.

CONOR OBERST: Sierra Casady a guitar player with CocoRosie, a very cool band I toured with a while back, taught me a trick … I go to a salon and have the nails put on professionally, and then I file them down real short. What I end up with is basically like having a pick on every finger … What makes it even nicer is that you can paint a little design on the nails if you want to — like perhaps some Japanese or Chinese letters.

See? CocoRosie is good for something after all. As for the Japanese or Chinese letters — as long as he realizes they’re not the same.
