NAILS NTNA Challenge 3
We were asked to focus on Entity’s Core Acrylic Line, and create the ultimate sculpted pink-and-white look. The nails must be sculpted on a model’s hand. No tips were allowed. Then NAILS mag wanted to see us turn our pink-and-white look into a haute couture masterpiece. We needed to take it one step further and embellish the nails any way we chose. (See my next tutorial ;) While they wanted the pink and whites made from acrylic, we could us any mediums to embellish the nails.
