NAILS loves a good group costume (see below).
For this year, we decided to be NAILS covers. There are so many iconic looks to choose from, but when it came down to it, we decided the early ʼ90s were best, since models wore several “fun” outfits. We may never know the real reason behind these cover concepts, but we can explain why the NAILS staff decided to portray these looks for Halloween 2014.
Kim Pham, graphic artist & VietSalon associate editor: “I had a mask and I love the masquerade theme! I’ve been to a masquerade, so I thought it would be perfect for Halloween.”
Kelsey Nolan, editorial assistant: “I went with this cover because I had the bangs!”
Beth Livesay, senior editor: “I helped my dad move last weekend and found the flute I played in junior high. I knew I had the perfect dress in my closet to complete the look.”
Taylor Yates, editorial assistant: “I actually picked this costume super last-minute. I was already dressed as Lucille Ball and serendipity struck. I happened to have all of the necessary accessories. Halloween magic!”
Sigourney Nunez, assistant editor: “It was a no brainer. As a nail art aficionado, this costume as the cover model of the Aug. ʼ92 issue gave me an excuse to show off my favorite nail tools — brushes!”
Danielle Parisi, art director: “I chose my cover because it was easy and so funny!”
Anh Tran, VietSalon managing editor: “I was a nail tech! I love my job!”
Shannon Rahn, West Coast sales representative: “I chose this cover because of its simplicity and because it has a pink logo…Who doesn’t love pink?”
Yuiko Sugino, graphic artist: “This was the best costume for the laziest costumer, and a reason to bring bubbles to work.”
