Nail Art How To: 3-D Seashell Nails (June 2014) Behind the Nail Pros

For the first time ever, Nailpro hosted a cover contest that allowed nail techs from around the globe to submit their work for the chance to be Lead Manicurist in a cover photo shoot for the magazine. And after judging a bounty of incredible submissions, we found one in particular that we just couldn’t look away from. The artist? Svetlana Svetich of Studio E'lan in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

When we had the chance to meet the talented tech in Los Angeles, we decided on a beachy cover for the June issue, complete with wet-looking wavy hair, seashells, and even a sandy textured nail. See how the makeup, hair, and nails came together in our latest and very special edition of Behind The Nail Pros!
