Professional Beauty Magazine is looking for lovely Step by Step Nail Art Guides to publish in our NailFile supplement.

If you are a skilled and avid professional nail artist who uses professional product brands only, this is a great platform to showcase your designs.

Typically, a Step by Step comprises the following:

  1. A written description of each step of the process of how you created the nail art design. Each step must be clearly labelled as in Step 1, Step 2…and so on.

  2. Each written step must be accompanied by an image that exactly matches the written description. Each image must be clearly labelled (i.e. Step 1, Step 2, etc.) so that we know which image goes with which step. The images must be of the nails only (i.e. no products or branding in any images).

  3. An image of the completed set of nails is essential and will appear at the top of the article.

  4. The nail artist must also submit a portrait pic and a short bio, both of which will be published at the end of the article.

  5. Please give your nail art design a name.

To see some good examples of recently published Step by Steps, please click on the link below for the Nov/Dec 2022 issue of Professional Beauty & NailFile and scroll to the pages 57, 58 and 59.



Please note the following:

  1. We cannot commit to publishing any Step by Step until we have scrutinized it to make sure it is of a sufficient standard.

  2. Professional Beauty does its own layout, so please only send the written steps as a word document and the images as separate attachments. We cannot use images that are embedded within documents.

  3. We DO NOT want any products or branding in any of the images, as the images must only be about the nail art and not used to advertise any product or brand. You may, however, mention which product/s you use in the written descriptions of each step.

  4. As Professional Beauty & NailFile is a publication targeted at the professional beauty salon and spa industry, this call for Step by Steps is open only to professional nail artists who have undergone legitimate beauty/nail training and who use professional products only.

  5. Please make sure to send the images of your step by step in jpeg or png format and in high resolution.

  6. Once completed please submit it to joanna@professionalbeauty.org.za



We look forward to receiving your submissions!
