Miss Pop’s Nail Art is Vibrant, Fun, and Ephemeral

A bold manicure can upgrade the blandest of looks, adding a colorful edge to your overall apparel. Case in point: Simcha Whitehill’s nail art. Known online as Miss Pop, the New York City-based nail artist has taken the fashion world (and Instagram) by storm, thanks to her bold designs.

With almost 45 thousand followers on Instagram and features in ElleMarie Claire, and Style.com/Print, as well as a regular spot on New York Fashion Week – Miss Pop is a force to be reckoned with.

“We’re challenging the notion of what wearable art is,” she told the Cut. “It’s not precious—it’s ephemeral. I can have whatever’s in fashion this week, and the next week, it changes. A lot of people underestimate the power of an interesting manicure. I like making nails look like jewelry—accessories that extend through the hands.”

Indeed, her manicures look like tiny works of arts. With one clear distinction: her art isn’t made to last. Check out her ephemeral, one of a kind, creations in the gallery below.
