Nailporn (@thisisnailporn) by Sophy Robson (@sosoflynails) is switching things up this year starting with its new nail art interview series i’ll be taking part in with my good friend Sasha from theholynail. i haven’t written about nails in what feels like forever so you can imagine how hyped i am to get back into the swing of things under fashions premier nail artist. eichimatsunaga, if you’re reading this for some reason, i’m trying to get to know you!
Update: $125.00 raised!!!! I am truly thankful for everyone who has been supportive in the launch of my magazine. It means the world to me. This is a new journey for me, and I am so appreciative of the encouragement and love from new and old friends, and family, that keeps me going. That catch phrase "build and they will come" has completed marinated in my head. At this point, anything is possible. Let’s continue to make it to the finish line, and enjoy the ride.
Hey everyone, please remember that a little goes a long way! It will mean the world to me if you can help me launch my magazine by encouraging friends and family to donate to my dream. Journalism is my way of giving back to you. I cannot do this without you. Thank you!
this was my first attempt at a nail art magazine during college in 2011. omg!!! visual journalism was by far my favorite course and it’s so crazy to see what has happened in a year. i remember turning in my assignment and missing my first and only class of his (which was the last class) to ‘watch the throne’ i want to show jon resh tipsy today. he was the dopest instructor at columbia chicago. all of his lessons have been important to my life.
This semester was so inspiring thanks to my visual journalism course. Like I seriously don’t think I could have made it if weren’t for that. Anyway, each student was assigned to create a small piece a magazines and mine of course was dedicated to nail art. I titled it TIP$ET based off the term and lifestyle I learned from Lushy. Everything was from scratch plus I got a chance to learn and work indesign. The cover art is by Poole while the story photos are by Astrowifey (those brown hands with the Versace inspired designs is my fingers too!) I’m proud of my visuals, and I hope to turn this sucker into something forreals in life.
