Merry Nail Porn

dj c. Andrew King

In what looked like an underground vault but was actually uber cool Shoreditch hangout Cargo, Sophy Robson, the Queen of nail art celebrated Christmas Nailporn style.

Sophy Robson has been making waves and headlines in the nail art world with her fierce and funky nail designs inspired heavily by modern art and everyday life. Nailporn is a term created by Sophy to define her work, which is ‘revolutionising the beauty and entertainment scenes into the perfect marriage’. As for Robson’s Nail Salon, well it’s not your ordinary high street nail shop! No, Robson’s luxe nail salon housed in Hari’s hairdressers on Chelsea’s Kings Road is uber chic. Your digits can be transformed into any manner of contemporary, fun, artsy and even social or political statements. Talk about wearing your art on your sleeve, well ish.

Merry Nailporn was a night to celebrate and Sophy and her Nail Porners did it in the only way they knew how with free nailovers (you know a makeover but for your nails, yeah I made it up, got a ring to it doesn’t it). Premae Skincare, the 1st Allergen UK certified 100% Allergen-free Wellbeing Brand (lookout for the feature on owner Clare Eluka next issue!) were also in the house jazzling and lashing guests. DJ Snips, one of the illest in the game brought home some banging beats alongside BBC 1xtra’s DJ Sarah Jane Crawford, DJ Nikki Beatnik - straight off the Kelis tour, Nailporn’s own Siobhan Bell and Blackfoot Phoenix. Hot line up of DJs right, well it’s no wonder being that Sophy’s is a musical past. Before devoting her life to the beautiful world of nails Sophy started out in the music industry so knows a thing or two about dope beats.

Back to the party and the entertainment really kicked off with magician Von Majik. Words can’t even describe the trickery with a simple pack of cards, an elastic band and if you weren’t careful your credit card! I was totally amazed and this is coming from someone who’s seen David Blaine in person. Trust me Von Majik is one to watch!! Still slightly stunned we were shepherded to the Nailporn grotto where Santa dolled out nailicious gifts. Although I’m not sure this Santa was really vetting the naughty from the nice. I think he was just happy to have so many ladies on his lap, I swear some naugthies got away with nice gifts!!

As the party rocked on famous faces and models Dudley O’Shannessy  (starred as love interest in Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ video) and Jourdan Dunn dropped in to support Sophy and shimmied to the pumping baselines alongside the Shoreditch trendies, Nailporn addicts, press lovelies and friends that made up the crowd.

Merry Nailporn was a great way to celebrate Sophy’s success just wish the queues hadn’t been too long sooo wanted my Nails did by Sophy!  Merry Nailporn Sophy! Looking forward to next year’s soiree…I’ll bring the Egg Nog!!

Thinking bout getting your nails did by Sophy? Here’s where you need to go
