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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Yesenia Oliva (San Luis Obispo, CA) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"'Music is love in search of a word.' I found this beautiful quote and decided to use it as inspiration for our first challenge. Music is a reminder of memories whether it’s sad or happy ... Sometimes if a certain song comes on the radio it reminds of a certain moment right?  This is what I wanted to show. I wanted to show all the beautiful things that come out thru that speaker that makes us feel so much.

I chose gold glitter for the speaker because I wanted to make it stand out more than anything else, with the colored notes out of it.  I decided to make the album coming out of the speaker just to make it fun with a little twist."

Tammie Alvarado (Tulare, CA) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"My inspiration was the Yellow Submarine from the Beatles. I choose it because when I think of music I think of Iconic figures. So naturally I had to choose them. Their choice of color variation and use of shapes really captured my eye.  I am so happy, excited, and honored."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Simone Gilbert (Victoria, Australia) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"Upon reading the theme for this week’s music challenge, I immediately thought back to my childhood. My Grandparents owned an old player piano, which is a piano that plays braille type musical scrolls.

I created an antique-looking nail with musical notes swirling its way around the tip, where it takes off and becomes three dimensional. I decided to incorporate a gloss factor to symbolise the black piano keys that we would to press to mimic the music as it played. These childhood memories are amongst some of my fondest and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of reminiscing to create my nail for this challenge."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Sherri Traweek (Redlands, CA) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"These nails represent the band and genre that touch me the most, and play a big part in who I am. The Pawnshop Kings are a pair of brothers who, through heavy doses of Southern Soul and Southern California surf culture, spread the Gospel through music that moves you to the core.

I've taken a few of their trademarks, and recreated them in acrylic, gel and acrylic paint. From Joel's acoustic guitar, to the Fender amp, the humble wood stage, and even the crown, these nails sum up the Pawnshop Kings experience.

The crown hanging upside down on the guitar isn't just a literal interpretation of their telltale logo, but tells a much deeper, more profound story. Traditionally, an upside down crown signifies a king who has fallen in battle. In this case, the crown represents Jesus Christ, and how Scott and Joel hang their musical influence ultimately on Him. The fact that it's also on a nail represents who I hang my creativity on!"

Robyn Schwartz (Grand Forks, BC, Canada) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"Lots of things inspired me for this nail — rock and roll was the first thing that popped into my head. Then, a glittery electric guitar, music notes and stars. I wanted to make this a fun, glittery, rock-inspired nail. I think it turned out really well."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Quisa Robinson (Ft. Worth, TX) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"My nail art was inspired by my love of running and how listening to music USED to be the one thing that made running bearable. I wondered how I could make running into a nail without the obvious way of creating a shoe, which wasn’t very music related anyway. My "Aha" moment came when I decided I wanted to portray the actual act of listening to music. I ran with an ear idea and would equip it with my Apple earbuds just like the ones I wear in real life. I thought for while about the ZONE I get in when I am running. It's almost like the music hypnotizes me. I thought of many ways to expressed my hypnosis until a twilight zone type swirl popped in my head. The ear was completely from acrylic, it was a challenge getting that particular shape and adding all the details of the ear...I kept wanting to incorporate Rihanna in there since she is my favorite artist but I didn't want to do lyrics or an actual face, that's when I remembered her tattoo and BOOM I had it!"

Nuni Torres (Kissimmee, FL) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"For this challenge I was inspired by the 70s, a real laid back era. Make NAIL ART not WAR. I brought a lot of color into this look trying to keep the bright tie-dye from the 70s in mind. It was definitely a time crunch but I think I made it work."

Nikkoal Bounds (Los Angeles, CA) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I choose to go with a concert theme with a Live DJ. Without a DJ or Music Engineer for a show, event, advertisement, ect. would be a plan and boring attention grabbing. When I got this challenge I had a vision of a female DJ and I felt that the DJ represents me since I love all genres of music. That's one of the reasons why I painted a diverse crowd."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

NailGurl (Bronx, NY) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"Music has changed (as a whole), and the devices used to play music have evolved over time. I remember the days when records were played at house parties and clubs. I also often daydreamed about my teenage years; making good use of spending hard-earned cash on cassette tapes, while breaking a few portable cassette players along the way. And please don’t get me started on those lovely holographic rings neatly pressed in plastic…better known as CD’s. Weren't those divine? And everything changed when MP3 players invaded the eardrums of the youth and adults…..from coast to coast. What next? And that is the inspiration behind this piece."

June 1, 2014  | Video

Marisol Alvarado (Stockton, CA) 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 entered my mind was the word music. Then visual musical notes. Music has inspired me throughout my life and my career. One of my passions is nails and I am continuously motivated by music. My family and I are all working together to reach for our goals and encouraging each other along the way. We are all on the same path in one way — chasing our dreams. The 3D hand is grasping for your dream, representing music with the 3D microphone. The cord wrapped around the microphone is in the shape of the treble clef."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Marianthi Tsitsopoulou (Oreoi, Greece) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I wanted to express music as a lifestyle, more than a product. For that reason, I made an afro girl, who represents the origin of my favorite kinds of music — soul, hip hop, funk and so on. I wanted her to have motion in her posture, and sound as she would be moved (the sound of her jewelry). I used a nail tip to sculpt her face and continued with a form to sculpt her body. I used water colors for her skin, make up and clothing and acrylic for the headphones, hair and the vinyl record adjusted on her head. Jewelry is made from chains and jump rings. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!"

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Lini Sherburne (Sparks, MD) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I chose one of my favorite bands: No Doubt, and one of their classic hits, "Spiderwebs" to be the inspiration behind my art. While searching the Internet for images related to the band, I saw a sheet of music for "Spiderwebs " and immediately noticed how much the bars of music looked like the title of the song: spiderwebs. I quickly decided that my nail would focus on bars of music that would transition into webs, ensnaring music notes within. The "tree" holding up the webs would be a treble clef, and since the tree is the base of the web, the nail itself would become the base of my design. The final element of the "Spiderwebs" theme was the spider. I wanted the entire design to flow together, so I placed the spider' s head as the center dot of the treble clef. I wanted to add an extra musical touch to my design, and so I used actual string from a guitar to create both the music bars and spider webs. The finished nail is bright, colorful and a little bit outrageous, all characteristics that truly describe the band' s style as well."

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

June 1, 2014  | Video

Lexi Martone (Dix Hills, NY) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I've done Backstreet Boys. I've done Spice Girls. The only things left were Eminem or Christmas music, and you've pretty much covered the extents of my musical enjoyments. As much as I love a Christmas nail in June, others might not share the same appreciation, so I decided to go with the later. When I first sat down to think about it, I drew a complete blank. After a couple hours I had concocted this crazy idea in my head to make the nail actually play music. I mean, what better way to convey a music theme with actual music."

Lavette Cephus (Toledo, OH) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"This challenge was so fun! Although I am a late ’80s baby, I feel like I was supposed to be born in the late ’60s. My family and I were obsessed with “Soul Train”. I am the oldest of six siblings (a big family meant our own soul train fun) , and we would always pretend to have our own soul train line. I want this competition to be as fun as possible, and when I can add energy to the challenge I will and as soon as I think of the soul train I think of energy, dancing until your feet hurt, bending lower than you thought possible, laughing and fun time with others. To add a touch of calmness I thought of a magnificent singer during those times — Diana Ross, an idol — she wore a mean afro, which also reminds me of Soul Train. It seems everyone on the show wore an afro."

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."
