Behind the NAILPRO July 2017: Rainbow Stars

Cutie marks are back in action—and what better place to showcase them than on nail tips? China Glaze recently released its My Little Pony (MLP x CG) collection, and we tasked New York-based nail artist Naomi Yasuda with crafting a design worthy of our cover. She took the sweet and whimsical quality of My Little Pony and kicked it up a notch, creating hand-painted ombré stars against a black background—the perfect design for a hot summer night. The more “grown up” approach reminds us that MLP is just as much for the kids as the kid at heart.
