Called Nailphilia, London’s first-ever nail art exhibition took place in September at the Execution Room. Through every medium imaginable, the exhibition delved deep into the world of nails, merging fashion and art and redefining everything you thought you knew about the aesthetic of the fingertips, according to curator Ryan Lanji.

Alongside artists, Nailphilia boasted established nail technicians such as Marian Newman, Sophy Robson, Sam Biddle, Mike Pocock, Megumi Mizuno, Antony Buckley, Jenny Longworth, Sue Marsh, and The Illustrated Nail as they showcased their talents and techniques through installation, photography, film, and books. The event was sponsored by, Sweet Squared, and Scratch Magazine.
