Nail tech of 23 years and SO Gel Nails Ambassador Becky Bunnell recently collaborated with other artists for a steampunk-themed photo shoot. The St. George, Utah-based tech says this was a first-time experience for her. She got started by simply posting to her business page that she was looking to do a shoot. The model and photographer are actually fellow nail techs who have taken classes from Bunnell. The makeup artist is a local hairdresser and salon owner who had always wanted to do a steampunk look. Bunnell decided on a mixed-medium look using hard gel, gel-polish, stamping, foiling, nail piercings, metal pieces, chain, studs, and clock hands on full well nail tips. The entire look took three and a half hours to complete.
