Juan Alvear‘s nail art is part beauty movement, part performance piece.
An amalgamation of the grotesque, the elegant and the self-effacing, a push and pull that is as arresting as it is disconcerting.
The New Yorker has worked his magic on the digits of performers like avant-garde Venezuelan artist Arca, “sugar-trap” rapper Rico Nasty, and flamenco pop superstar Rosalía.
He’s also a favorite of designer Collina Strada and models like Jazzelle Zanaughtti.
The common thread tying together his clients: a commitment to the innovative, the unexpected, and sometimes, the weird.
Other notable clients are Julia Fox, Charli XCX, Lourdes Leon, Symone and Kim Petras.
He is represented by Opus Beauty and you can find his portfolio HERE
