About The Book
Nail Candy is a breath of fresh air in the cosmetology book market—it’s sassy, fun, and full of DIY nail art tutorials that anyone can do. It contains more than 50 ideas presented in full-color photographs and cute line-art illustrations that show readers exactly how to achieve a certain style, ranging from arty to girlish to hardcore and more. Readers will learn how to mask their nails off to create simple patterns, add studs and decals for edgy flare, and create more ambitious paintings that rival works of art.
