Follow Friday: Buddy Sims

As the second runner-up in the inaugural NAILS Next Top Nail Artist competition, Buddy Sims has kept busy traveling the country as a creative design consultant for Tat’z Nail’z. Merging technology and nail art, the machine he teaches other nail techs how to use can put any digital image on nails, making it easy for others to create amazing manicures in seconds. If you aren’t keeping up with this cutting edge nail tech, you should. Here are three reasons why:

1. He implements innovative techniques into his designs. Just look at those 3-D scales! Get the step-by-step for the reptilian nails here.

2. He’s an advocate for MANicures. Buddy doesn’t shy away from a good polished nail and you shouldn’t either.
