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.)
