Celebrating Nails: The Story of the Modern Manicure w/ Vanity Projects

I had the pleasure of attending a great event celebrating all things nails at one of my favorite nail art salons. Though I have had my nails done by some of their amazing manicurists (at various event and loving them through their Instagram account), this was my first time at the Vanity Projects NYC Nail Salon and it was there to celebrate the wonderful book, Nails: The Story of the Modern Manicure by Suzanne E. Shapiro.

The first-ever "all things nails" book discusses history of the manicure, the evolution of the painted nail and all nail trends that we've tried and loved. The book shares interesting tidbits like how Hollywood, fine art, and music genres like Hip Hop has influenced nail art, and the new new, hot trends like outré nail art which is booming now. Did you know the manicure has been around for less than a century? At the very crowded event, we enjoyed a book signing, OPI and Suzanne E. Shapiro nail lacquer giveaways, and some amazing accent nail art. Attendees chose from a wide variety of art art designs offered by Vanity Projects (including a freaking dinosaur).


To get your hands on this awesome book, head over to and get it for $21.86.
