Lady Gaga can always say that her fake fingernail is worth money, as it was auctioned for $12k and purchased by an enthusiastic fan of the “Edge of Glory” singer.

The fan has laid claim to one of the intricately-designed false nails worn by the singer at the launch of her Fame perfume and during her “Born This Way” ball tour last year after paying a five figure sum for the unique item.

Gaga, 27, adorned herself in black acrylic nails featuring detailed gold embellishments - which were designed exclusively for her by New York nail artist Aya Fukuda - last September, but the singer appeared to lose one of the nails while gyrating on stage in Dublin, Ireland and it was later picked up by an eagle-eyed stage hand after the concert, who promptly sold online.

In the official auction listing, the crew member explained: ”I noticed an object on the floor of the stage, which at first I thought was a guitar plectrum. When I picked it up, I saw it was an acrylic nail.”

It’s not the first time one of Gaga’s eager fans - who she affectionately calls her Little Monsters - has paid good money for a piece of the star.

In 2010, a Russian billionaire reportedly paid a cool $1 million to feature alongside the Grammy Award winner in her nine-minute “Alejandro” music video.
