Looking for a great summer read? This one is perfect for all us nail fanatics! Nails – The Story of the Modern Manicure by Suzanne E. Shapiro documents the evolution of nails throughout the centuries. It’s beautifully written with gorgeous photography and imagery to tell the tale of how nail adornment began and its impact on culture.
A personally thrilling moment was when Suzanne asked to include All Lacquered Up in the book. She contacted me over a year ago so I’m even more excited to see the finished product and be a part of it. And now you have a chance to win a copy of your very own, along with a limited edition nail polish created to celebrate the launch, OPI Switchboard Starlet.
Nails – The Story of the Modern Manicure
On page 130, representing one of the 35,000 nail blogs that Nails Magazine estimates are in existence, you’ll find me!
Outside of the fascinating stories and facts in the book, you’ll also find colorful and interesting images from pop culture, advertising and fashion. And the photo essays at the back, including an inside look at OPI, are not to be missed.
It was during her visit to OPI to create the photo essay mentioned above that OPI Switchboard Starlet came to fruition. A 1,000-bottle, limited edition run, Switchboard Starlet is a semi-sheer red jelly inspired by the nails of the 30′s and 40′s. If you remember the OPI Texas sorbet shades, this is similar.
And now you have a chance to win a bottle of your very own, along with a copy of Nails – The Story of the Modern Manicure.
