This collaboration between J. Crew and Nails by Mei is interesting. Comprising a collection of rings, I couldn’t help being reminded of Bea Bongiasca’s work (some of the rings in this collection feature enamel and shapes very similar to hers, in particular the Loop Crystal Ring). Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery … I suppose.
The site’s description: You might already know Mei Kawajiri (aka @nailsbymei) for her maximalist manicures and celebrity clients. This season, we collaborated with the Japan-born, New York-based nail artist on her first-ever collection of rings, inspired by the colorful, playful accessories of the early 2000s. Like this crystal-embellished, twisty loop ring that wraps around your finger. Feel-good fact: This style was made using eco-friendly recycled glass and brass casting.
This is priced at USD$49.50.
