Apr 12, 2016 >> Three Ways to Nail Spring Beauty
Runways around the world are proclaiming Spring fashion isn’t just an ode to clothes and beauty anymore. We’re going fingertips first into Spring style. Manicurist Ashley Gregory created three sets of trending nail art to glam up our Drag Beauty story—because style is all about the tiny details. And since our issue is all about celebrating the uniqueness within, we enlisted the help of one-of-a-kind queens to give us a hand in modeling the coolest nail trends of the season. Put your boring nudes and go-to reds into hibernation: we’re going bright, brazen and drag!
We crowned Shea Coulee and Beverly Lately as our Spring fling queens. Not only do these ladies have impeccable stage presence, but their extraordinary style and bold confidence makes them our ultimate spirit animals this season. Nail extraordinaire Ashley Gregory transformed our Queens’ nails into one of the most coveted trends this Spring. (And did we mention Ashley’s Instagram is total manicure porn?!)
