Hopefully by now you have been to our Nail Art Gallery site and become quite addicted. Simply go to nailartgallery.nailsmag.com and you can either browse photos without logging in, or log in for a fuller user experience. Read on for some cool new features and improvements we’ve made to the site.
1. Phone Uploads
If you’re an iPhone user and have IOS6 or later installed, you can now upload photos directly from your phone. Open your browser to Nail Art Gallery and log in.
Nail Art Gallery no longer limits the amount of photos that can be posted to your profile. This means you have endless opportunities to share your nail creations and how they are made.

2. Create Your Own How-Tos
Another new feature is the ability to post tutorials with multiple images and instructions.
We’ve added these new features in the hopes that you continue to use Nail Art Gallery as a place to showcase your nail art. These modifications will not only make it easier for you to document your creations, it will also help you share your designs with clients and peers. The more you post, the more you are building a beautiful portfolio of your work that you can reference again and again.
> Tag your photos with as many labels as possible and add descriptions and product names.
> Use watermarks with no more than 50% opacity and place the mark so it doesn’t obscure your art.
> Be detailed when filling out your profile. List your full name, salon name, link to your social media, and update your profile regularly.
> Don’t steal other people’s work and post it as your own. Nail Art Gallery is a space for posting photos of your creations and yours alone.
> Choose decent images. Photos that are too blurry or have crazy borders detract from the nail art you worked so hard to create.
> Provide contact information so if we are interested in using one of your photos in Nail Art Gallery Magazine or elsewhere, we can get a hold of you.
