Celebrity manicurist Mar y Sol didn’t let the fact that New York Fashion Week is taking place virtually this season stop her from creating nail looks we could admire from our bubbles on Thursday.
Sol created must-see punk-inspired manicures for Christian Cowan’s SS21 NYFW show — a collaboration with music superstar Lil Nas X –and a fashion film featuring a unisex ready-to-wear collection to benefit Atlanta’s Black queer community.
Sol, whose brushwork we’ve seen on Oprah, Lizzo and Jasmine Sanders, was inspired by the details in the collection and Lil Nas X’s free spirit. So, of course, the manicures were a far cry from ordinary.
“My goal with the nail looks for Christian Cowan and Lil Nas’ collaboration was to defy the ordinary and inspire the extraordinary,” said Sol.
And indeed she did with shades Mom the Manager, Beach Bum, The Final Rose and Best Friends Forever from vegan nail polish line defy & INSPIRE. And for the finishing touches, she added Swarovski crystals.
