Tuesday, April 15, 2014 Nails: Nagisa Kaneko From Disco Nail

disco-nail-1

Meet Nagi a.k.a. nail artist extraordinaire Nagisa Kaneko. She lives and works in the hip Shibuya district of Tokyo where she runs an awesome salon called Disco Nail. Nagi’s personal look might best be described as girly new-age goth (or something along those lines), and she rocks it from the tips of her silvery, bleach-blonde tresses to the toes of her tough girl vintage boots.

We couldn’t be more pumped for these festival-ready nail designs, so we mix-and-matched our favorite sets and took them for a pre-summer spin.

Friday, October 11, 2013 Nails: An Hour With Britney Tokyo

1

If you’re looking for the boldest, brightest, and most balls-out mani, we’ve got the perfect gal for you—super kawaii nail artist Britney Tokyo. One peep at her Instagram, and you’ll see she’s obsessed with everything from ’90s graphics (think: smileys and yin-yangs) to 3D gems to junk food. Last month, our resident writer/awesome person Steaktooth hit up Britney to give the whole jeweled nail art thing a try, and we needed to know more about the lady behind the designs. So, we headed out to West Hollywood to watch Britney create our dream art-history-major-meets-hippie design in real life. (And, yes, that is Frida Kahlo on top of tie-dye.)

Thursday, October 3, 2013 Nails: WAHHHHHHH’s Sharmadean Reid

Sharmadean Reid knows a good thing when she sees one. The London-based stylist and businesswoman has a habit of spotting (and even starting) trends early, from Nike pool slides to tie-dye Proenza Schouler tees. Back in 2008 she was one of the first people to bring fashion-forward nail art to the mainstream in the form of her hip London salon WAH Nails, and she’s been spreading the WAH way of life ever since. In her new book The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls, Sharma lifts the lid on her unique brand of style and success with a little help from a worldwide crew of girls. Our contributor Phoebe Lovatt spoke to her to find out more.

I did it. I made it, twenty some odd years without ever getting my nails done. I mean, nothing more than applying layers of glitter to cover whatever color had been chipping off over the last few months.
