Need some help with the details of your Canadian Nail Artist of the Year collection? We’ve rounded up some tips to help point you in the right direction.
Tell a Story
Entrants have to submit three before and after images, with three different looks, so why not elevate the cohesiveness of the collection? Tell a story or set a theme with your collection and make an artistic statement.
Follow Your Vision
Sometimes pulling off the look you’ve envisioned is easier said than done. However, bringing the vision to an actual image is dependent on more than just your designs.
Choose a photographer that understands what it’s like to shoot hands since natural-feeling poses often translate a bit awkward on-camera. It’s also important that you choose a team that will help your artistic vision come to life, from that bottle of polish, all the way to the end of the entry process. When it comes to shooting your nails, lighting is key, but so is learning from past experiences.
What has Worked in the Past
Whether it’s going through your own past collections or studying what has worked for past winners and finalists, get inspired or learn something new. Creativity is always encouraged, so don’t be afraid to take a risk or do something completely new. Stretch yourself!
