On days when nothing’s going right (food baby in the belly, hovering boss, ex posting a million pics of his new GF on Facebook), nail art still has an uncanny ability to make us smile.
We ventured to Wassaic, New York, a friendly hamlet two hours from NYC, where artist and certified nail technician Breanne Trammell churns out designs we love from her studio in an old barn.
In today’s Pretty Smart videos, she shows us a lowbrow/highbrow duo: donut sprinkles that’ll make you hungry (above) and geometric, summer-inspired shapes reminiscent of Richard Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park paintings.
Both tutorials are easy enough for amateurs, though Trammell did help our editor with her left hand.
She really nailed it.
