The Baby Boomer Glass Effect is a spin on the French ombré with pinks and nudes. This technique helps you create a glass effect that is suitable for many clients and nails. Nail techs can make it more extravagant and colorful or more nude, classic and elegant and learn how to insert any type of decoration under the “glass.”

After taking the classes, you can apply what you have learned in the Nailpro Master Challenge. Show off your skills in any of the four live competitions on the show floor from Aug. 21-22: Hand-Painted Nail Art, Gel Polish, Gel Design and Sculptured French Acrylics. With help from sponsors like The GelBottle Inc., Nailpro will be providing all the products, tools and models, so you will have one less thing to pack in your bag! Registration is open now until Aug. 1, 2022 (there will be no on-site registration).
