Wednesday, April 23, 2014 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Pharrell’s Backup Dancers
While hangin’ in the Cali desert all weekend long, we got down at some killer shows, but–if we’re going to be real for a second–one of our favorite live performances had to be by Pharrell. Not only did he bring his A-game onstage (and a surprise visit from Busta Rhymes!), but all his back-up singers and dancers were decked out in tons of Nasty Gal pieces. Rhea Dummett, Ashley Simpson, Khadija Nicholas, Christina Chandler, Ai Shimatsu, Mette Towley, Aye Hasegawa and Brya Underwood wore super graphic, ’90s-inspired ensembles that were totally fest and stage ready. Check out how they styled their looks (and swipe ‘em up for yourself) below!

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 Nasty Gals Do It Better: In The Nasty Gal Milk and Honey Jumpsuit
Don’t get us wrong—we’re all about that more-is-more attitude, but sometimes all it takes is a couple pieces to truly make a statement ensemble. See: Friend in Fashion blogger Jasmin Howell. This Aussie babe paired a crisp white Nasty Gal Milk and Honey jumpsuit with the Nasty Gal Collection Virtue & Vice Embroidered Bomber Jacket and Shoe Cult Collection Privilege leather heels to prove that less really is more when it comes to turning heads. Check out more pics of Jasmin’s monochrome ensemble below, and stay tuned for the launch of Nasty Gal Australia in the coming weeks!
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 Nails: Natalie Pavloski
When I lived in NYC and commuted to work every day, my main goals were to: 1.) Avoid eye contact at all costs, 2.) Ride the train without a single person talking/touching/glaring/sneezing on me, and 3.) Walk as fast as humanly possible during the transfers. Basically, nothing could get in my way. One particular day, though, I was power-walking through the Lorimer/Metropolitan stop, and there it was—THE most beautiful zine I had ever seen on display at The Newsstand. It stopped me dead in my tracks. The word “Nails” was written in giant script across a photo of a single hand holding a switchblade with crisp, white tips. Instantly, the image was burned into my brain, and shortly after that, I moved to Los Angeles and still wondered who the genius was behind that killer cover. Turns out it was nail artist Natalie Pavloski, an Australian who worked for housing and homeless organizations throughout NYC but had “always been doing something creative, whether it was drawing, painting or taking photos.” After talking with her mentor and friend, celebrity manicurist Alicia Torello, Natalie decided to switch careers and assist for her instead. “I started to put my own work out via social media and had a really good response. It’s been non-stop ever since.” Natalie also did the super kawaii Emoji nails for our rave lookbook, so we thought it would be the perfect time to ask her to share her top 10 nail designs with us—and the secret to making them look so awesome. —Chrissy Mahlmeister
