Who Wants Hypercolor Nails?


Speaking of things from the ’90s having their comeuppance, do you remember Hypercolor t-shirts? I absolutely loved them, in theory.

Swarovski crystals, 3D designs that were painstakingly done one petal at a time, multi-color hand-painted scenes, etc — all done by my amazing nail artist Thomas. I had it all. Or so I thought! Enter the totally DIY-able nail marbling technique. Continue reading
