The Artist Making a Big Mark on a Tiny Canvas

Gracie J’s artistry blossomed on the most unusual of canvases: fingernails. After launching her blog, The Editorial Nail, in 2014, she soon landed the role of key nail stylist for the mani-centric TNT drama Claws—which grew her celebrity client roster and further catapulted her to Instagram stardom. From minimalist, jewelry-like patterns to 3-D vaginas, this bold entrepreneur is carving a new niche for nails at the intersection of art, beauty and fashion.

“When you rock with confidence, people don’t doubt you, and they don’t question if you deserve to be in the room that you’re in.”
