Nails Magazine 30th Anniversary Nails – Predator/Prey

Who’s hot at 30? Nails Magazine! Happy Anniversary! For turning the big 3-0, Nails is celebrating all year. I’m honored to be one of 10 nail artists asked to come up with three nail looks that reflect the last three decades of the magazine.

First reveal: Predator/Prey 
Snakes eat birds, and birds eat snakes, so it’s a mystery who is Predator and who is Prey

This look is a tribute to Tom Bachik’s October 1999 cover. As an nail artist, he has catapulted nail design as fashion – starting with Hollywood stars and traveling all the way to everyday nail enthusiasts.

Feathers are trending again in nails (not hair) and my tribute adds in the texture for Year of the Snake (2013). I’ve stayed with the blue and ice white, and love how the scales seem to transform into the dots on the feather. The feather, now updated to the side, completes the shape of the nail with a wing tip.

This is very much an editorial look, but would you try feathers?
