Behind the Scenes: These Toes Are A-Twitter

May 1, 2010  | Demo

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.

Behind the Scenes: From Russia , With Style

April 1, 2003  | Article

This month’s cover comes to you all the way from Russia. Russian women are very fashion-conscious and feminine in their styles. With a full set of nails costing around $120 U.S. dollars (and rebalances costing $60) not all women can afford enhancements, but a growing number of women visit salons regularly.
