FASHION // HERS: Free Manicures!












Little did you know that you can get your nails done AND be apart of an art project at the same time. Nails Across America is Breanne Trammell’s baby, an experiential art project that harnesses the quickly-established intimacy that comes with someone who, for an hour or however long, is holding your hands in theirs.

Armed with a manicure kit and a 1968 Shasta Compact Trailer, Trammell is making her way across the U.S. and collecting stories from people of all walks of life who come in for a free nail session. The project was funded entirely by Kickstarter where just over $5,000 was raised. She’ll be on the road for two months with her final stop being August 2 through 4 in Wassaic, New York.  Trammell will be in Austin July 6.  In her mobile salon you’ll be able to choose from colors like Cheetos Orange and nail designs like #2 pencils and donut sprinkles. How can we say no?!
