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."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

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 (Beru)

June 1, 2014  | Video

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

"I took to the Internet and looked up a few of my favorite artists — females in the music industry with a distinct strong individualistic image. Missy Slliot. M.I.A. Kesha. Within these videos I saw a lot of color and A LOT of gold. Both Missy Elliot and M.I.A. had these dope gold chains so that's where I got that inspiration from."

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."
