Lopez spent five years living in Cancun, which was the inspiration for her “Topical Tropical” design. “If you travel just outside the city of Cancun, there are many little jungles, some of them with animals roaming free,” she says. One set of nails is flat art (it’s a re-creation of a mural she’d painted on her bathroom wall); the other is 3-D acrylic.</p>

Spectacular. Amazing. Impressive. You can take your pick of adjectives, since all of them describe the quality and range of entries to NAILS' annual Nail Mural Contest. Beginning in 2003 with winners Sue Tumblety, Kazuko Tomiyama and Lorena Marquez, through 2009 when Kimberly Connolly Preston, Jessica Valasek, and Rachel Ouellette took the top prizes, these diminutive works of art continue to enchant us all.
