NAILS commemorates its 35th anniversary with a celebratory cover from nail veteran Greg Salo (@gmansalo). Salo serves as president of Young Nails Inc. and has been doing nails for 25 years. You can catch him creating content weekly for the Young Nails Biz Vlog and for the Nail School vlog. The fresh, forward-thinking attitude of Salo and his brand were the perfect fit for NAILS’ new look.
Here are Salo’s steps for how to create the petal-inspired nail in this month’s cover look:
1. Sculpt the nail with Cover Pink. Apply SlickPour in Radar Warrior to the nail.
2. Add dimension by overlaying thin petals over each other all the way down to the tip.
3. Pinch the nail.
4. Cap the nail with Speed Clear and file it into shape. Trace the edges with Mission Control white to define the petals.
