No UV Needed just about says it all when it comes to the fluorescent glow of this Hot Pink Nail Gel from L.A.Girl. Just sitting in the bottle, it looks like a tiny work of art — and I’m sure it looks great on your nails as well!

This year, New Yorkers definitely needed a seasonal hard reboot, and the Spring edition of the biannual Affordable Art Fair brought much-appreciated flashes of color and whimsy into the City during its exciting four-day run in late March. Whether you’re an experienced collector, someone looking to invest in a single piece for your home, or an art lover who just enjoys the inspiration and joy of browsing, the Affordable Art Fair is a great place to expose yourself to (and purchase) art from a finely curated selection of cutting-edge, contemporary galleries from across the globe. For me, this recent fair really embraced the spirt of fun and humor in art. Let’s look at a collection of my favorite fun artworks spotted at the AAFNYC for Spring 2019!

Elad Lassry (born 1977, Tel Aviv, Israel) is an Israeli-American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. His chromogenic color prints — still life compositions, stock images, photocollages and studio portraits of friends and celebrities — never exceed the dimensions of a magazine page or spread and are displayed in frames that derive their colors from the dominant hues in the photographs. I love how this photo looks so much like an ad, and thus succeeds on the same level as the work of Andy Warhol to elevate commercial images to the realm of fine artwork.
Nailpolish (2009) is a new acquisition to the photography collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
For this Holiday season, Avon has some really cool stocking stuffers priced at under $10. One of my favorites is this set of four mini polishes in a range of metallic colors. The color on my nails in the photo below is called Mystic (above, far left), which has a bronze-gold hue on the nails – very festive! Two coats cover completely and the polish is super quick drying to prevent smudging. A set of four metallic colors sells for just $8.99 at This Link.
