NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Lauren)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Lauren Boyd (Memphis, TN) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"What's been near and dear to my heart lately is my city Memphis. My city is known for the blues scene, but the legacy that continues is unfortunately the lesser known. I wanted to pay tribute to my city's amazingly talented people by showcasing the venues in which they've performed, BB King's Blues Club and the Levitt Shell. I was roaming about on Beale St. and saw a George Hunt painting that spoke to the city's history and black heritage, so I thought it was fitting for the design. This nail represents history, culture and a continuing legacy in Memphis. I'm happy to be able to fuse together music and my love for both it and my city."

NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Konstantina)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Konstantina Tsihlas (Athens, Greece) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"The first thing that came to my mind was Lady Gaga playing piano. I admire Lady Gaga because she is a good singer, she is unique and she is not afraid to be different and do all that crazy stuff. She usually plays piano at her concerts and it's my favorite instrument. I searched through the Internet and decided to make her with a bow on her hair because that was her characteristic appearance. I also wanted to create an MTV music award because it's the biggest prize-giving. Another thing that I decided to create on my nail for this subject was a CD case. Ι wanted  my CD case to open and take out the CD. It wasn't that easy but I figured out a way to do it!"

NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Kenny)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Kenny Vo (Richmond, VA) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I listen to and appreciate all types of music, but it is rave music in particular, that inspires me the most. For me, rave transcends beats, notes, lyrics and instruments; it is an otherworldly force of immense energy that brings people together in unison and synergy. I wanted to create a nail tip that epitomizes rave as a whole, from the physical and visual effects, to the more spiritual and indescribable emotions that are felt.  I have therefore created a bright, colorful and vibrant 3D flower, with each petal having a different color, and I have adorned the nail tip with crystals and colored studs."

Karrie Bowers (Morgantown, WVa) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I chose my favorite band, Oasis, and their iconic music video for 'Champagne Supernova' to base my nail on. I've been a fan for nearly 20 years, and their music inspired me to learn guitar as a teen. This is what really sparked the creative part of my mind."

NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Jarrel)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Jarrel Baccus (Stockbridge, GA) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"The very first thing that came to my mind was MTV videos and the way the broadcast of music videos changed the music industry. For those who don't know the exact history, MTV's very first music video broadcast was on August 1, 1981 for the Buggles "Video Killed the Radio Star". The launch of MTV's music videos mimicked the first man on the moon, only instead of placing the United States flag on the moon it was an MTV flag instead.

My 1980 semi-retro-themed nail takes you inside the music study of your favorite musician from the 1980s, KISS."

Erica Tam (Yellowknife, NW Territories, Canada) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"The piano was the first instrument I learned to play and it also brings back fond memories of recitals! I love the piano; not only is it a timeless classical instrument, it is also very versatile. From pieces by Mozart to jazz, blues, and to John Legend's hand in R&B. Music is a large part of my life and I cannot imagine life without it!"

NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Amy)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Amy Gustafson (Victoria, BC, Canada) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I was inspired by the headphones and colours I saw right away. I loved that the headphones became something else (the script Love). I decided that I would have the headphones become the piece of music. I loved the curves of the photos I saw and thought I would incorporate that somehow with it going outside the nail. I love flashy so I thought the more sparkles the better."

NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Alecia)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Alecia Mounixay (Wilmington, NC) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I used white hard gel for the base of the nail and various neon gel-polishes that faded in the background, lightly dusted with glitter and capped twice with clear gel-polish top coat to give it more depth. I handpainted the word music with little notes. I used white acrylic powder to make the music notes and painted them with gel-polish before applying them to the music lines that surrounded the nail with wire base. This was also capped with black acrylic and gel. The face was made with white gel-polish to give it life and painted with acrylic paint for fine detailed lines."
