Tina Fey's wearing little more than an American flag on the cover of January's Vanity Fair. The unusually sexy look for the geek chic comedienne continues in the Annie Liebovitz-shot editorial with an exposed black bra and demonic red pumps. In fact, the stylists and makeup artists manicured every inch of the actress - except for her hands. Despite the crazy campy look, the dancing-lolling-vamping Fey wears her nails short and bare as if, gasp, they actually belong to Tina Fey. Because messing with someone's nails is like making them wear a mask. Some people talk with their hands, but everyone's hands talk for them. Anxious? Your chewed up nails give you away. High maintenance? We're terrified of your crimson claws. [Side story: A friend of mine confessed that her boss's nails used to make her sick. The attorney "would openly gnaw on them in court" leaving an unprofessional and unattractive set of nails in his nervous wake. Are you surprised that a Manhattan lawyer can get away with that? Don't be. After all, the self-styled bad-ass defends killers for a living and as my friend said: "I doubt anyone ever gave him shit."] The moral of the story is: Your nails tell the truth about who you are. If Tina Fey's all-American hooker garb included Revlon Raven Red on her fingertips, she would've looked like an actual hooker. Whereas bare nails make her Tina Fey dressed up as a hooker. Which in turn make the pictures funny - not embarrassing. So what do your nails say about you? Are you telling people you're a little punk rock with that Black Satin, even though you're in bed by 11 every night? Or maybe you're coming off as a little tacky with those tips? --GLENNA GOLDIS (our new weekly beauty columnist!)
