New York City-based nail artist, Simcha Whitehill, AKA Miss Pop, jokingly refers to her style as “Back to the Future” — a nod to the past and a nod to the now. Her dashing designs are very clearly inspired by ’80s aesthetics, with her work being featured in top tier fashion magazines such as Elle and Marie Claire, as well as on runways during New York Fashion Week.
“I like to create a retro look full of bold colors and prints that still incorporates current trends to amp up classic styles,” she told Style Caster. “Of course, since nails are my fave accessory, to match all that shimmer, I’ve been bejeweling my toes too with metallic gold and silver polish. Plus, I line my bottom lash with silver so my eyes have extra twinkle too. I’m not exactly an au natural kind of girl, so especially in the summer when my usual makeup just melts right off, a little sweat-proof glam beauty makes me feel done up.”
“I think summer is all about doing what is comfortable,” stressed Whitehill. “So, if wearing pumps on the beach makes you feel good, well, then go for it.” But with summer now officially over, we can now turn up the volume when it comes to fashion. Especially when it comes to our nails.
