Getting Colored by Kleur
Nail art is a perfect way to express your individuality and celebrate color. While traditional nail art is cool, the crazier the better for Nicole by OPI. This past weekend some of the Nicole staff hit up Beat Swap Meet in Los Angeles-an event full of vinyl record sales, B-boys showing off their skills, and geometric-heavy manis by LA collective Kleur.
Like the artwork of our June blogger spotlight For Your Nails Only, the girls of Kleur mix styles, hues and expectations by designing unconventionally stunning nails. Kleur is an appointment-only nail art collection, but their presence is strong at a range of unique LA events. If you're in LA and can't fit them in during the week, check their website for weekend events you can attend to get your nails done.
Stellar nails were our Beat Swap Meet take-away, but most importantly, we were reminded that you never know what you'll stumble upon when you support your community. Because when you discover new nail enthusiasts and noteworthy artists, it's pretty much like striking gold.
