I can’t stop checking out everyone’s nails – and lately they’ve been delivering on a new level. A surge of creative influences are hitting our 10 (or 20) digits, from mixed-up styles, impressive DIY commitment or studios like new custom nail art salon Pinky’s Nails. In the thick of this Renaissance, last week we checked out Nail Art Party, thrown by our fave sophisticated toy store and contemporary gallery Magic Pony, in collaboration with artist Sholem Krishtalka. It was a PWYC event, where kids, teens, hip 20-somethings & moms alike to get a new arty look. Some even brought cartoon inspiration, using an image on iPhone as guide.

We <3 your nail party, Magic Pony.
