Nail Art: The Microcosm of Fashion

Posted on August 20, 2012 by casepops | 0 Comments

Colors, patterns, sparkles, ombré - cool nail art is everywhere this summer, and we're loving this method of self-expression.  Nail art is like the microcosm of fashion!  What do your nails say about you, where you're from, your hobbies? Below are some of the coolest nail art pics from the twitter feed and our (silly) guesses about the who, what, where behind these mini-fashion statements.  We also included some really fun examples from our favorite blogs:
