Modern Nail Art
My stall, Modern Nail Art features a real nail artist who will paint a classic work of Abstract Expressionism on your fingernail for a small charge.
Playing with the idea of the art as commodity, Modern Nail Art combines the crafts of the painter with those of the beautician, bringing us the ultimate, intimate experience of personalised individualism through the popular idea of a “nail bar”
