If you’re looking for swoon-worthy nails packed with attention to detail, Simone Gilbert is your girl. This Melbourne, Australia-based nail tech owns and operates Urban Bliss Beauty nail salon. With more than a decade of experience under her belt, it’s no wonder her work demonstrates a masterful execution and flawless finish. If you aren’t keeping up with this self-proclaimed perfectionist who inspires creativity, you should. Here are three reasons why:

1. Her work is elegant with an amazing balance of hand-painted, embellished, and sculpted techniques.
