While we love pumpkin-flavored baked goods as much as the next chick, we think the whole pumpkin obsession belongs in the kitchen, and not on our person. Basically what we’re saying is this: Pumpkin Spice Latte-inspired nail art is for high-schoolers — an unpopular opinion, surely, but we’re just looking out for you. Don’t worry though; you can still express your autumnal enthusiasm through your accessories. This mani is the perfect example of how to do fall nail art like a grown woman. Read more »
Local nail aficionado Emma Still of @nevernotpolished caught our attention on this dreary Thursday with an Instagrammed photo of her gorgeous, detailed nail art. According to her post, the design was “inspired by some of the beautifulness at Occasionette,” one of our favorite Philly gift shops. Read more »
Yesterday we told you all about the elaborate nail art that took over some runways at New York Fashion Week. It was bold, dangly, in-your-face stuff. Perfect for a fashion show, less wearable in real life.
The best nail trend we’re seeing now is the minimalist manicure. It’s the perfect foil to an over-the-top outfit, and it also is the ideal complement to more monochromatic looks. Here, 10 so-chic minimalist manis that we’re dying to try. The best of the best.

If you’ve perused Phillymag.com in the last few weeks, you know there’s been some extensive World Cup coverage. While we at Shoppist have had, well, zilch. So we decided to jump on the bandwagon and have our hand (pun intended) at soccer reportage—Shoppist-style. We present you: World Cup nail art. Two reasons it’s amazing: 1) It counts as fan garb, so you don’t need to wear an ill-fitting borrowed soccer jersey unless you’re an über-fan; 2) You can get it at Lacquer Lounge right in the city.
For this week’s installment of Conversations of Style, Shoppist met with Lacquer Lounge owner Lisa McElhone at her wonderfully girly, recently opened Rittenhouse location. We picked the beauty’s brains about her biggest splurge (Ed. note: We can vouch that it was totally worth it), who she’s inspired by and the ever-important: nail art or basic mani? (It’s the “boxers or briefs?” equivalent for nail mavens.)
