October Nail Artist of the Month: Mac Schoen Nails

9:00:00 AM

Happy Thursday and Happy October!  I can't believe that October is really here, but that's okay because I rather enjoy this month.  Fall is in full swing, I have dozens and dozens of apples to bake with, and it's almost pumpkin carving time!  Not to mention all the nail art possibilities because of Halloween being right around the corner!  I need to start my Halloween Nail Art Wheel!

Since it's the first post of the month, that means it is time to introduce you all to another amazing Nail Artist of the Month!  I am very pleased to introduce you to the talented McKenzie from @Mac_Schoen_Nails on Instagram!  I've been following her account for quite some time and admired her work.  She is seriously an amazing nail artist.  Just wait until you see what she created for today!

Let's take a look!


Hello ladies! I was so honored getting chosen by The Little Canvas to be Nail Artist of the month for October!  I'll share a little bit about me and then I'll tell you about the materials and tools used to create my mani.

I'm 22 years old, been happily married for just over 3 years now. I grew up learning to paint and draw from my aunt. I used to paint rocks, canvas, or just whatever I could get my hands on. It wasn't until a little over a year ago that I discovered the amazing world of nail art! Becoming such a great passion of mine it's been a blast pushing the boundaries of "what's possible" to be put on nails!

I hope one day to get my nail tech license, but until than I'm just going to enjoy this great ride. :)

I want to give a huge thank you to The Little Canvas for this wonderful opportunity and thank you to all my supporters, I wouldn't be where I am without you guys! I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Now the details of my mani:
I used mostly acrylic paint to do the design itself - Colors and brands used..

Brand: Americana
-Winter Blue
-Neutral Grey
-Alizarin Crimson
-Moon Yellow

Brand: Apple Barrel
-Tapestry Wine
-English Ivy Green
-Christmas Green
-Granite Gray

Brand: Folk Art HD
-Forest Moss
-Autumn Leaves
-Yellow Ochre

I used Nail Aid 3 minute Artificials as my base coat to help strengthen my nails. 'Bahama Mama' by Essie is used on my thumb and I used a cream color by The New Black (it was in a tiny kit from Ulta it doesn't have a name sorry!) as a base coat to my design. I used an amazing brush by Jolie Polish for clean up. If you've been searching for a clean up brush that holds up through a good acetone thrashing, than head over to Jolie Polish at storeenvy.com :) Trust me you won't regret it!
Another must have is HK Girl top coat by Glisten & Glow which is what I used on this mani. Last but not least I finished this mani with some cuticle oil from Sally Hansen.

Amazing, right?!  Honestly, amazing cannot even describe how fabulous these nails are.  Look at all the little details!  The pumpkins on the pointer, the bridge, the changing leaves!  It's just AMAZING!  I wish I were this talented!!!!

Please make sure to follow McKenzie on Instagram!  You will NOT be sorry!

Thank you so much for this amazing mani, McKenzie!  :)

Until next time, <3.
