Earlier this year, we met up with Steph Stone to talk about her nail art. Back then, the LA-based artist created some fun, Dr. Martens-inspired designs for us (see them here) and shared some insights into her fashion-meets-art craft. We checked in with Steph just in time for the holidays and asked her to create new looks inspired by the season and her favorite Doc’s of the moment.
What are your favorite trends for this holiday season?
Texture has been my favorite trend to play with this holiday season. I wanted to pick a shoe of every type of texture to feature with complimentary nail art. Enhancing the shoe with an extra adorable sock has also been my favorite way to wear Dr. Martens.
What is your go-to look for the holidays?
California doesn’t get too cold so my staples have been a classic boot, skater skirt, and embellished top with a light coat. I like to incorporate feminine aspects into my outfit while still keeping it pretty tomboy. My go-to nail to keep it festive is a classic red nail.
Which shoes were your favorite to work with?
I loved working with the Iced Metallic as the glitter gradient really compliments the shoe without being too over the top. It was fun translating all the shoes into nail art.
What is your favorite thing to do in LA during the holidays?
My favorite thing to do in LA over the holidays is actually driving out of LA! Though the city doesn’t get much cooler you don’t have to drive far to experience a little snow. My Doc’s were the perfect shoe for the weather.
What is your favorite holiday song?
Mariah Carey Christmas album forever!
