Get Katy Perry's Black Shatter Manicure at Sunpoint Retreat
Beauty Beat: Shattered Nails, Not Shattered Hearts, at Sunpoint Retreat
If you're not too busy breaking hearts today, consider trying out a wacky (but super cool) "shatter" manicure, á la Katy Perry. At first, I was understandably perplexed by the nail effect but after Sunpoint Retreat (344 E. 63rd St., 212-319-5805) took care to shatter my nails to perfection, I'm a fan of the deconstruction.
For only $15, you can get this growing mani-trend painted onto your digits. Great timing, too, because it just so happens to be popping up on every fashionista at Fashion Week. One day it's all about the prim and polished look, and the next, it's dark and shattered. If Valentine's Day isn't your thing, here's a great way to express how you really feel. The textured, unkempt appearance of the nail is the antithesis of what we go to the spa for. But for a little inexpensive beauty daring, I say, it's worth a taking a "crack" at.
