Topic: Fantasy Nail Art
Fantasy nail art has been around for some time now, but have recently become pretty popular with celebs.
Celebrity nail artist and manicurist Naomi Yasuda’s client list features brown sistas like Alicia Keys, Monica, Keri Hilson, Jazmine Sullivan, and Teyana Taylor. Naomi works with Keri & Alicia regularly, but is responsible for Keri Hilson’s popular Complex Magazine Style & Design Issue, as well as the cover of Alicia Keys’ latest album, The Element of Freedom.
One of NYC’s most popular [up and coming] designers LaQuan Smith previewed his Spring 2011 collection back in September, where celebs like Cassie, Serena Williams, Jaslene Gonzalez (of America’s Next Top Model fame), and Deborah Cox walked in his fashion show. Big hair, metallic makeup, and over-the-top nail art completed the dramatic look of the show.
Rising star and Hollywood royalty Willow Smith was spotted working the funky nail trend in her music video for “Whip My Hair.”
Photos of Keyshia Cole’s latest video shoot proves that she’s a fan of the fantasy nail art as well.
Tell us what you think:
Is fantasy nail art only acceptable on kids, celebrities, and in fashion shows? — or, is it cool for everyday women to rock the trend as well?
