Two of Chicago’s most boss babes just made something next level cool. Meghan Lorenz, Cities in Dust designer, and Ashley Crowe, a.k.a. the insanely talented nail artist Astrowifey, teamed up to create a piece of jewelry that brings the best of their worlds together. The Cities in Dust aesthetic is wearable yet edgy with bronze metal, collars and cuffs, stones shaped into balls and daggers. And, Astrowifey is a legit artist. The things she can paint on a nail bed blow.my.freaking.mind. My fingernails are the size of that of a seven year old and I’m convinced she could depict The Last Supper on my pinky nail.
I can imagine the creative process these two went through to make this bronze nail ring. I followed along on Insta while the two revealed snippets occasionally. I love where they ended up and appreciate that it was specifically made for any nail bed….child-sized or otherwise. The ring is adjustable and even doubles as a cool midi if you flip it around. It’s finally available in extremely limited quantities on Local Eclectic. I hope this is just the start of more hand jewels to come from these two!
