The best place to get a CalGel Mani/Pedi in the city is Marie's Nails in Soho (on Prince Street). It costs around $45, and these Girls can make anything you want on your nails. The only annoying detail: it takes up to two or three weeks to get an appointment.
Look at my nails (after a week and a half). I have to admit that I went a little overboard, but I really wanted to try some real Japanese nail art (and this is still a joke compared to what I have seen done at this nail salon).
Lady Gaga. Do you remember the video of Bad Romance? These are the nails in the video...it is pretty interesting...
Rihanna...I just wanted to make you smile :-)
Katy Perry. Leopard Print is back (again)...(I will soon write a post on the animal prints for this winter). In the meantime, the nails are a fun way to show your wildness. You don't have to do your entire hand like Katy, you can choose to do a regular manicure and just add one finger to put the leopard print on.
