Eda Levenson Shares Her Process Behind Designing the Coolest Nail Art with TNT’s Claws
Beautycon 2018 in Los Angeles marked the final stop for the #ClawsUp pop-up mani salon truck. Television network TNT teamed up with nail artist Eda Levenson aka Lady Fancy Nails, who created bespoke nail art based on each of the series’ five main characters, to promote the second season of Claws. The series stars Niecy Nash as a salon owner in Florida and follows her motley crew of manicurists who navigate organized crime and money laundering. The #ClawsUp truck was sponsored by indie nail polish brand Floss Gloss and kicked off in June at Herald Square in midtown Manhattan. It offered fans complimentary manicures with nail art designed by Levenson. At the Essence Festival two weeks ago, TNT announced that Claws has been signed on for a third season.
Allure spoke with Levenson who chatted about her design process for the #ClawsUp project, as well as celebrating nail art as an art form, supporting indie businesses run by women, her ride-or-die products, and why base coat is the always the answer.
