Nail Color of the Month: DIY with Izzie Klingels

Marigold and Mint’s resident nail guru gives us a sneak peek of her upcoming class.

By Amanda Zurita April 17, 2012

Fashion watchers can’t get enough of this season’s patterned pants and ikat oxfords. They’re such big hits that they’re showing up on pinkies, too; the artsy nail trend is already a spring staple.

We asked Seattle-by-way-of-London digit-art aficionado and fashion illustrator Izzie Klingels of nail blog The Other Hand to give us some tips and a preview of her upcoming Marigold and Mint nail workshop. On May 24 she and the Melrose Market boutique staff will walk you through the steps in creating celebratory spring nails and a fancy flower pin—just in time for Memorial Day weekend. Find out what polishes to use, tips and tricks to avoid or cover up mistakes, and how to come up with your own vibrant nail designs.

Appointments for the class are available from 5–9 and will last 30 minutes to an hour. Sessions are in pairs so bring a friend or be ready to meet a new one. Space is limited and the spots will fill up fast: Call the shop or email info @ to reserve your time slot.
