Check out this preview of NAILgasm, a documentary directed by Ayla “Brass” Montgomery that explores the not so subculture of nail art.
Aside from being one of the most searched and populated hash tags on social networking sites like Tumblr and Instagram, nail art has been around since 80s hip hop and curly perms. What was once considered “ghetto” and borderline tacky has become a mainstream obsession from Japan to London to the streets of LA and NYC. If you can dream it up, you can wear it on your nails. Popsicles covered in diamonds? No prob. Simple french white tips because you’re a classic kind of beauty and you don’t want frozen treats on your hands? Come on in. Graduating and need some caps with actual tassels applied? No sweat, my pet.
You can watch NAILgasm in its entirety for a $1.99 rental fee.
Lady Gaga once said, “Any woman is above the rest if well-manicured.” We couldn’t agree more.
