(From the June 2010 issue of NAILS Magazine.)
NAILS Magazine has totally reinvented our online Nail Art Gallery: Now it’s a little bit Flickr, a little bit Facebook, and a lot of amazing nail artistry. Use this tutorial to help you set up your profile and get started sharing and interacting right away. Pretty soon you’ll be using our catchphrase: Have you seen MY Nail Art Gallery?
Our brand-new Nail Art Gallery, which has long been the most popular section of our website, has been completely redesigned, and I know you’ll love it. It’s a cross between Facebook and Flickr, and allows you to do more to showcase your own art, as well as browse and get inspired by other nail artists’ work.
On Nail Art Gallery 2010, you can create a personal profile, become a fan of other nail artists, and upload all of your nail art photos in one easy-to-share place. In addition, you can interact with other nail artists by browsing, liking, or commenting on other techs’ art and photos.
I’m hoping you’ll visit the site at nailartgallery.nailsmag.com. You don’t have to register to browse, but I think once you see the fantastic artwork you’ll be inspired to create your own profile. Use this article to give you some pointers for maximizing your Nail Art Gallery experience.

That’s basically it — six easy steps to ¬becoming an engaged and active member of Nail Art ¬Gallery. Have fun! This site is a place for you to keep all of your nail art pictures in one place so you can show them off to your peers, your friends and family, and your clients. We encourage you to share the link to your Nail Art Gallery profile with as many people as you want. And we hope you’ll be inspired by other artists’ work. We know we are inspired by you all every day.
Why Go Pro?
There are two levels to the Nail Art Gallery. Everyone can join for free and have access to all the features listed on these pages. You’ll be able to upload up to 50 pictures at no charge.
For more prolific nail artists, we offer the Pro Membership. A $20 annual subscription allows you unlimited photo uploads, a second profile page for your salon photos and salon information (a great promotional tool for you!), promotional spots as a “Featured Nail Artist” in the pages of NAILS Magazine and on our Nail Art Channel homepage, the ability to download your original high-resolution photos, and a PRO label on your profile. We’ll be running ¬promotions throughout the year on Facebook and Twitter, on our blogs, at events, and in the magazine. So make sure to keep your eyes peeled.
