Four local nail-art pros
You swear by a hairstylist who knows how to cut your unruly locks and frequent a facialist who gets exactly what your skin needs. Now you can be just as picky about who does your manicure. Choose the nail artist who suits your polish personality:
Loud graphics Taylor Watson, the woman behind Party Nails, draws from ?90s nostalgia (e.g., Lisa Frank designs) and drag culture, and uses local polish brands such as Floss Gloss. Book her through TopCoat or stop by Nailed at the Lexington Club on Sunday.
Runway-inspired Saturday by Kate Spade, Joie and Mara Hoffman are just a few of the fashion lines that have inspired Pams & Kin?s nail masterpieces. Parris Hodges and Kiri Jones have a knack for painting couture-caliber designs. Book them through TopCoat or find them at Macy?s Nail Bar.
Edgy talons The nail-shy need not apply for Steph and Nails. Self-taught Stephanie Besa-Kallens shuns polka dots and stripes in favor of long, pointy tips decked with wild leopard-print patterns and Wu-Tang Clan decals. Book her through TopCoat.
