Beauty and sports cross paths on the racetrack as 19-year-old Top Alcohol sand drag racer, Ashley Sanford, speeds past the competition with Gelish Soak-Off Gel-Polish as her main sponsor. While drag racing doesn’t typically attract female racers to the track, Sanford is currently making a name for herself in this male dominated arena — proving she is driven, focused and ready to win with her “tough-as-nails” attitude.

As for teaming up with Gelish, everything just fell together naturally and it’s a great fit. As Sanford says, “Gelish is a line of gel-polish that has been really popular the last few years. It’s not like regular nail polish. It’s made of materials that make it last longer. In a way, we fit perfectly together because it’s great for girls who work hard and are on the go, and that’s exactly what I am. I’m always moving and working around the car. My nails should be as tough as I am.”

As rough as Sanford is with her hands on a daily basis, the one sure-thing that she can count on is her nails staying shiny, glossy and chip-free for up to three weeks. Gelish is definitely as tough as Sanford and supports her with her race to the top.
