When I interviewed Charlotte Ronson last week about her swimwear collaboration with Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, I couldn't help but be distracted by her crazy manicure. Charlotte's nails were painted with a red, orange and yellow flame design that would ordinarily be at home on the hood of a 1980s Camaro.
