Over the last ten years, we have seen the limits of what nail arts can create, evolve to unbelievable levels. There seems to be no limit to what can be created, from realistic paintings to textures, illusions, sparkles, jewels, and more. Our latest columnist Stephanie Yaggy Lavery from Mia Secret tells about what sparked this evolution, and how artists continue to push the boundaries of possibilities. From Nail Tech to educator, to DK Beauty owner, Deborah Jacklin tells us about the evolution of the industry in the last 35 years, and how she has seen the world of nails change.
