Looking for a unique and different way to spice up your look? For many, the additional touch or flair that immediately comes to mind is a new fashion accessory or jewelry. Here’s a hint for a definite unique and personal flair that absolutely no one else will have: Nail Art. Nail Art is defined by Wikipedia as, “a creative activity that draws pictures or designs on the fingernails-it is a type of art”. This is a definite understatement. The world that is Nail Art is full of free expression, uninhibited creativity mixed with endless possibilities.
Because I know that many of you are like me and believe that fashion and style is a very personal reflection of one’s personality, I don’t believe in the “cookie-cutter” anything. Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to meet one of Chicago’s premier Nail Artist, Ashely Crowe aka AstroWifey. My appointment started out with a consultation to assess what I was interested in. Ashley took the time to find out what designs caught my eye, what creative details spoke to me, and overall what my personality & style consisted of in order to personalize and create Nail Art specifically for me.
While watching Ashley pimp out my nails I learned so much about this amazing young artist. Only 22, she’s had her amazing works of art featured in a number of marketing campaigns, participated in stand-out fashion events all throughout the city (i.e. Topshop Olivia Palermo Event) and is now going to be featured in a Nail Art documentary alongside the icon Sophy Ronson.
Don’t snooze on AstroWifey Chicago! In the meantime check out my AMAZEing nail art that I call “Tribal meets Rocker Chic”:
