Pearlcore Nails Are The Perfect Winter Mani Trend

The reasons to love pearls are numerous. To name just a few: They’re elegant, timeless, and versatile. You could throw a strand or two over an oversized sweater, or wear them with an LBD á la Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. So it’s no wonder that Pinterest is predicting that you’ll be seeing all things pearl — a trend dubbed “pearlcore” — in 2022, from the actual gemstones themselves to the signature iridescent hue showing up on accessories. And pearlcore nails — stone-accented or pearlescent-painted manicures — are also expected to be one of the year’s buzziest manicure trends.

Los Angeles-based nail artist Britney Tokyo, whose whimsical designs have been seen on celebs like Lizzo, Rita Ora, and Paris Hilton, says she’s a fan of the adaptable nature of pearlcore nails. “Pearl-accented nails and iridescent polishes create colorful designs but are also simple enough to

Kenny Maguire’s ‘Alternate Realities’ comes into focus at TCC exhibit

Artist Kenny Maguire negotiates time and space with a tangible and digital paintbrush. His unique take on the world is informed by his 40 years as a painter and muralist.

Maguire’s newest exhibit, “Alternate Realities,” at Tallahassee Community College’s Fine Art Gallery gives viewers an entirely new perspective on how art can intersect with the metaverse, and what stories can be told across dimensions.

True Colors: The San Francisco Billionaire (Would-Be) Art Bonanza

Alcatraz was looming in the background and the Golden Gate Bridge lit up in the distance, and those in possession of San Francisco’s great fortunes—some new, some old—streamed into Fort Mason, the military base once used as the West Coast Union battery during the Civil War.

The site was once again playing host to the city’s major annual art fair, named Fog and often engulfed in actual fog. Wednesday night was the gala preview, where the heirs to Bay Area oil fortunes like Vanessa Getty mingled with the city’s banking kingpin Charles Schwab and tech billionaires—Zynga’s Mark Pincus, Instagram’s Mike Krieger, Twitter’s Ev Williams. The art adviser Sabrina Buell was making the rounds on behalf of her clients, one of whom is reportedly Larry Page, the Google founder who is currently worth around $119 billion.

But were any of them actually buying art? One could be forgiven for overlooking

Across the Spider-Verse Will Have a Totally Different Art Style for Every Dimension

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will lean into its eclectic mix of art styles with a different style for each dimension.

During an interview with Collider, filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller explained their “ambitious” approach to the Spider-Verse sequel.

“It is, as Phil said, a very ambitious sequel because we didn’t want to just sort of do the same thing again,” said Miller, who co-wrote the script. “And so, the idea that we’d be going to different dimensions really opened up an opportunity artistically to have each world have its own art style, and to be able to push the folks at ImageWorks to develop a way to have each dimension feel like it was drawn by a different artist’s hand.”

We already got a taste of the different styles from other parts of the Spider-Verse in the previous film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

There, we were introduced
