Paintbox NYC creates nail art inspired by the May 2020 Issue of Wallpaper*
Photography featured in our May 2020 Issue – available to download for free here – has inspired nail art designs from NYC’s famed Paintbox salon
The May 2020 Issue of Wallpaper* centres around Art, Architecture & Escape and, in keeping with the escapism theme, we asked the team at New York’s Paintbox salon to create nail designs inspired by the issue.
Their nail art pays homage to the range of multi-disciplinary stories within the Wallpaper* pages – from the rainbow waves of Julio Le Parc’s artwork to the cool-hued geometries of Arizona architecture and the pastel decadence of 80’s inspired jewels.
With the right supplies, and a steady hand, the designs can be recreated at home. Or you can download a free copy of the May issue here and flick through its digital pages to inspire your own digit designs.
Artist Julio Le Parc is still making waves and inspiring these stripy nails
No-rules jewels take centre stage alongside these sparkled pastel nails
Embedded in the desert landscape of Arizona, a rugged concrete house prioritises shelter and chic, next to blue swirling nails inspired by arid night skies
Sinewy lines and strong shapes define this season’s tailored looks and the monocramatic geometries of these nails
For uplifting interior inspiration (and nail design), we’ve got our heads in the clouds
