Behind the Scenes: Leaving on a Jet Plane

November 1, 2010  | Demo

Elaine Watson, global education director for Star Nail International, sculpted this month’s autumn leaves for the cover. Because the nails were leaf-shaped at the free edge, she didn’t have to do any file-finish work, so the application was actually remarkably quick.

Behind the Scenes: A Long Overdue Appointment

October 1, 2010  | Demo

Five years ago, Patricia Yankee was named NAILS' Nail Tech of the Year in 2005. Part of her prize included a trip to California to do the cover nails for NAILS Magazine. We never seemed to be able to settle on a date that worked for both of us. And all of a sudden, it was five years later and we were still trying to figure out a good time for her to come out. Thankfully, it all came together this past June.
