Well, maybe not easy. But Star Nail’s global education director Elaine Watson has a quick tip on how to get a better performance out of acrylic for 3-D designs.
When we asked Orange, Calif.-based celebrity nail artist Elsbeth Schuetz to come up with a toenail art design for this month’s cover, she brought us a whole slew of nail tips to choose from. While her hand-painted nail art is always super creative and artistic, we wanted to go with something a little more simple and wearable for the cover. Inspired by tone-on-tone patterns, she created this faux-snakeskin design using layered polish and diamond-shaped rhinestones.

Gina Silvestro is constantly thinking outside of the standard nail “bubble” and strives to stay on the cusp of trends, while sharing and instilling innovative thinking and techniques with her peers. For this month’s cover we asked her to create something fun and bubbly.
Dashing Diva’s Gelife Soak-Off UV Gel System can be used to make standard pink-and-whites as well as more fashion-forward nail designs such as the “ombre effect,” in which the nails gradate from one shade of color to the next.
The Wet Paint Nail Glaze System offers flexibility and individuality by letting techs create custom polish colors by layering base colors and topcoat glazes together.
