This is my entry to NAILS Next Top Nail Artist 2015/16 first pre-competiton challange. The theme was "Cover Artist" and we were asked to create a hand-painted design inspired by a NAILS Magazine cover from over 30 years back.

I chose the May 2015 issue for many reasons. This cover inspired me the most, I love its mood, theme and the colours. And this cover gave me the chance to use one of my favourite technique, the Zhostovo folk art painting.
I chose Russian Almond nail shape. It provides a perfect base for the whole nail art. The centre of my nail art is the Saint Basil’s Cathedral like on the magazine cover. The colours of my flowers are in harmony with model’s sweater on the picture.

The nails were made using acrylic system from Nail Harmony, Young Nails and Nail-Artists. The hand-painted design were made using acrylic paints, regular nail polish and gel polish from Nail Harmony (Gelish), Cheeky, Kiko, Nail-Artists and Polycolor.

I hope that you will enjoy this tutorial and this quick journey to Russia. ;)
