A Visual Guide to NAILS' Cover Tech Contest

by NAILS Staff | July 25, 2019
 -

Follow these tips to create a cover-worthy image!

 -

When you're creating your image, remember that we will need room for the NAILS logo and address box.

 -

Be sure to send vertical images only. Horizontal images will not fit the dimensions of our cover. 

 -

Keep the nails in the center of the image. 

 -

If the image is cropped too closely on the nails, our logo, address box, and cover lines may cover your beautiful nails!

 -

Be sure to give enough space around the nails. 

 -

Keep the background of the image clean so that our cover lines will be readable.
