The Face of Celebrity Nails

The Face of Celebrity Nails

Naomi Yasuda is a thirty-two-year-old nail artist whose colorful, extravagant, often three-dimensional work was featured in a show at the Cooper Hewitt Museum this year. One afternoon at her apartment downtown, as she prepared to give a manicure to a hairdresser friend, she dunked her own fingers, with nails painted periwinkle blue, into a bowl of tepid water.
