Taryn Multack, better known by her profesh name, Miss Ladyfinger is a nail artist living in NYC. The Syracuse U grad majored in fashion design but uses her trained eye to turn digits (in lieu of fabric) into haute couture. She finds trends everywhere – from the streets to the catwalk – to create her cutting edge nail art. Her goal is to make the world a more stylish and, ahem, polished place.
We think she’s doing a pretty good job so we caught up with Taryn to talk about her designer wish list, 2014 nail trends, and tips (get it) for every girl on new ways to style their holiday nails.
If you could have ONE designer item under your tree/menorah/kwanzaa bush this year, what would it be?
A drawstring backpack from The Row.
Nail polish is getting banned. You can only safely stow away ONE color. Which one is it?
I’d have to say Peridot by Chanel.
2014 is almost here! Last year was all about the pointy nail, what new nail trend do we have to look forward to in months ahead?
My new favorite thing ever— matte! And nude. Together they look really chic.
Imagine you have three girlfriends. One lives Uptown, one lives Downtown, and one lives in Brooklyn. How would you paint their nails for a holiday party?
