Francheska DeLaney is an artist, and her canvases occupy the tips of fingers and toes. At The Nailology Studio, she tailors manicures and pedicures to her clients' specifications, soaking, filing, and buffing men's fingernails, for instance, or glamming up ladies' nails with her tools and brushes. Her portfolio displays short, cream-colored nails flecked with gold leaf, leopard-spotted toenails with zebra-print tips that help wearers illustrate the food chain to their children, and even 3-D crystal-kitten charms adhered to a fuchsia backdrop. And Francheska doesn't just innovate with pattern, color, and embellishments, either—she also takes nail shape into consideration. Long and pointy, medium and round, or short squares with softened edges, nails in Francheska's hands flourish into their most stylish selves.
