It's about the whole package from head to toe- or nails. Nail art doesn't have to be cheesy anymore and nail salons are taking things up a notch. I recently visited Paint Box where manicures become an experience. From the ambiance to the nail art look-book with this season's curated collection, the whole vibe transcends the experience from being just another manicure to completing your style/look. The bonus is it's not outrageously expensive and you're served champagne or wine during your appointment (I'm sold just on that)!
My point ladies- Whether you're in New York or not.. Your nails are a part of the whole picture. It's one of the first things people look at, so don't neglect them. Have fun with them. Just don't paint rainbows, flowers, and shit on them!
