  • 16 new color palettes: Kandalec loves how colors can work together when they are side by side, so she wanted to share more of her signature fool-proof color combinations!
  • Four-shade palettes down by season: winter, spring, summer and fall. Each quad in the book can then be broken up into two-, three- or four-part colorways for endless options.
  • 50 new nail art looks: Julie’s favorite nail art looks have been added, each with its own story. Some are named after the celebrities she has done the look on, like Camila Cabello, Joe Jonas and Machine Gun Kelly, while others are named after family.
  • The book helps nail art aficionados create their own signature look, providing tips and tools for every step of the nail art creation process.
  • 540 blank nails to sketch in.
  • The book is complete with a new QR code to stay up to date with Kandalec’s latest nail tips and celeb manicures in the digital space.

“I made my book for the creative spirit of any age and creativity level. It is designed for nail art lovers, whether that is a current nail school student, experienced nail art aficionado, someone who just likes to DIY at home and anyone in between. Adding the educational elements of color theory, my favorite tools and more, I want to guide and encourage nail artists to create exciting nail art that they love and have a gorgeous diary in which to store it, too,” said Kandalec.
