Nail-centered beauty, lifestyle, media platform Nailcon is highlighting the work of four New York-based Black women nail artists and curators with an immersive art exhibition held alongside Frieze NY. The exhibition aims to bring attention to the significant contributions of black women in the nail art community who have historically been underrepresented and underappreciated.
The four featured artists Dawn Sterling, Telly Talons, Honey Nailz, and Melissa Samuel will share their stories and showcase their unique talents in the beauty industry through a series of immersive art installations by Tone Woolfe and Mike McLenighan. In press about the exhibition, Nailcon founder Jazmin Gresham says, “We are excited to celebrate the work of these talented Black Women nail artists and curators,who have been instrumental in shaping the beauty industry.
