Nail Art

Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.


Honor My Mother

Nail techs create nail art in honor of their moms.

This nail makes me think of my mom because she is a business woman — very serious and classy but she has that sassy and flashy side of her. I used gold foil and silver glitter for the nail art because it reminds me of her jewelry. She only wears gold and silver jewelry and it is like her signature look — never a day without her David Yurman. I love my mom and wish I could see her every day. This is just a small expression of my love for my mom. Words can’t ever express how much I love her and miss living near her.

When I was younger, my mom and I would go shopping every Saturday morning together. I’d be carrying one of her purses, filled with my favorite lipgloss of hers and wallet with one of her cards inside to make me feel like I was all grown up. The first stop we’d make when we got to our destination? The purse department! This is one of my favorite memories of my mom and me, so I knew I had to put a fabulous 3-D leopard-print purse on this tip. The 3-D charm bracelet at the smile line represents the charm bracelets that both my mom and I wear — she and my Nanny gave me mine for my high school graduation present and it has such sentimental value to me! And then of course the fabulous pink inlays, sparkles, and bow represent both of our girly-girl sides!

The nail design represents my mom because she has always loved flowers and I remember planting them around the house with her when I was little. The flower design and yellow background color was taken from a barrette that my daughter has. I wanted to incorporate the breast cancer ribbon to honor my mother’s ongoing fight with breast cancer, and the “MOM” for Mother’s Day. I was adopted when I was three months old from Athens, Greece, and my mom has always been there for me.
