Nail Artists Sophy Robson & Disco Nails ‘Master Class’ Event

24 April 2013, 16.15 | Posted in nail art | 5 comments »

SophyDiscoHS (6)

We’ve long loved nail artist Sophy Robson and were super excited to cover a recent “Master Class” event in London she organized with the goal of educating both aspiring and established nail artists.  The event included instruction by Robson and the much-admired Japanese nail artist Disco Nails (aka Nagi) who works from her salon, Disco Nails in Shibuyo, Japan. In other words, two of the world’s most talented nail artists, what a gift for attendees!

Check out more images from the event after the fold, plus a video. All pics & coverage by Amina Khan for HighSnobette.

boxed-in french by illustrated nail

Spring is taking it’s sweet time to make itself felt in New York. I’m finding nail art to be a fun way to channel warmer weather by wearing lighter colors when a coat and boots is still de rigueur. The Illustratednail takes the classic French manicure design and reduces it to a black outline on a white nail. The result is sleek yet edgy.
