I was really excited to hear that there is an exhibition dedicated to nail art coming to London – the beauty industry is full of amazing visuals, incredible packaging and passionate people, so I am surprised that there are not more exhibitions dedicated to beauty.
Curated by Ryan Lanji and DegreeArt.com, a company ‘investing in the artists of the future’ by selling, commissioning and renting the most prestigious student and graduate artwork,they have teamed up with the likes of Marian Newman, Sophy Robson, Sam Biddle, Jenny Longworth and Sue Marsh to showcase nail art as an art in its own right.

Nail-savvy brands such as Cheap Monday and Laruicci (creator of the gold claws seen in Beyonce’s new music video ‘Run The World’) will also be on show.
I can’t wait.
