Chosen for Nails

Magazine Annual

Cover Contest 3

Years in a Row

Kaitlin Jeanette Smith was selected as a

Noteworthy Entry for NAILS Magazine Annual

Cover Contest  (January 2016 p. 118).  This is the third year in a row that her work has been

featured in the Cover Contest having also been published in 2014 and 2015. At just 22 years

old, this is her 10th time in National Publications.  Kaitlin was chosen from an elite group of

Professionals Nail Artists from around the World. Her "Truly Turquoise" Nails showcased in

the magazine were made on a Gelish® base utilizing a special technique to create the effect

of a real gemstone.  The same technique was also used on the bracelet shown in the


Kaitlin both painted and modeled all of the nails shown in publication which requires

ambidextrous hand skills. Unlike many of the entrants; Kaitlin does not have a corporate

sponsor but rather works independently and chooses products according to what best

actualizes her creative design process. She is a 2011 graduate of Raphael's School of

Beauty Culture, Inc. in Niles, OH.
