Rockstar Toes is a casual term for toenails with enhancements, usually glittery, colored, or embellished acrylic or gels.

I always love getting out of the office and seeing what’s going on firsthand. And after the year we had last year, it’s refreshing to see the shape of things turning around.
A current trend is to add glitter, mylar, and other embellishments to nail enhancements, but how can nail techs be sure they aren’t compromising the strength of the enhancement and causing premature service breakdown by adding too much? Sometimes the glitter tips I’ve sculpted break off at the free edge, causing clients to doubt my abilities. (This occurs more often in gels than acrylics.)
There’s a hot tip circulating among educators to help techs with their glitter applications.
