To say that Madeline Poole has nailed taking what was once a hobby and turned it into nothing short of an incredible career – well, yes, it’s a pun but its also true.  Not many people can say they create tiny works of art painted onto fingertips on a daily basis, all while having a bit of fun along the way! When nail-art was at its peak, Madeline was at the forefront – working her magic on the fashion industries finest (and a few friends too, of course ) !

Even when the hype of intricate detailing dies down, she’s just as fluent at doing beautifully simple nails – choosing and creating that perfect shade of blue to match your favorite hue of denim. She’s the kind of girl we love, a girl who wears denim daily – like Garance, who shared her love for skinny jeans as the first part of this collaboration with Gap.

We wanted to ask Madeline just a few questions on her style, nail-art and what else, denim!

Madeline Poole, Editorial Manicurist & Designer 

Describe your style in 3 words. 
Eccentric, Colorful, Multidecadal

How do you like to wear denim? 
Head to toe!

What is your first memory of denim? 
Light wash, baggy, holes in both the knees – attaching a picture of me with my family’s dog at a dog show in suburban Maryland (circa 1996… I think) in my favorite pair of Gap kids jeans :-)

How is denim a part of your life today? 
I wear a bit of denim everyday – I have denim shoes, bags, jackets and pants. I’ve even done denim nails. 

Dark Denim? Light Denim? Wide leg? Skinny? What’s your go to shade and cut and why?
Shade wise I love it all – there’s a time and place for every wash. I love high waisted wide legs, flares, straight legs and low rider baggy style the best.

What do you love about denim?
Denim feels like a neutral I can wear with anything which is helpful when your closet is as colorful as mine. (And I look good in blue :-))

Why did you choose this pair of Gap jeans?
I chose these because they fit like a glove, made me feel tall and slim :-) and I’ve always loved those little vintage patch pockets on the front of pants.
