At Nailpro, we love showing off the amazing creations of everyday nail pros. Starting with the May 2022 issue, our cover contest will give licensed nail techs the opportunity to be featured on the cover as well as a three-to-four-page spread of the magazine.
Now is your chance to vote for the mood board you want to see transformed into the cover set. On Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021, visit Nailpro’s Instagram to cast your vote via the poll in Stories. Make sure you are subscribed to Nailpro to discover the winner in May 2022 and see the cover nails!
Give it up for the top two mood boards (in no particular order) of the May 2022 Cover Contest.
Mood Board 1: Head in the Clouds
Concept: Black, art and color move the spirit, so I take it all everywhere!
Mood Board 2: Asian Heritage Month—Chinese New Year and Year of the Tiger 2022
Concept: Tied to the Chinese lunar calendar, the holiday was traditionally a time to honor household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. It was also a time to bring family together for feasting. With the popular adoption of the Western calendar in 1912, the Chinese joined in celebrating January 1 as New Year's Day.
Nail techs will be given creative freedom as they create a set of nails that coincide with the themes (see below) of Nailpro magazine. For a recent example, check out the November/December 2021 issue.
