Book Review... Glam Nail Studio by Amber-Elizabeth Stores

i have something super exciting and special to share with you all today... the book Glam Nail Studio: Tips to Create Salon-Perfect Nails by Amber-Elizabeth Stores! it was kindly provided to me for review, and i couldn't be more grateful :) Amber-Elizabeth Stores is a celebrity manicurist that's know as 'The Queen of Shellac'. this book is everything you could want, all in a sleek little package.

all of the following pictures show content that is the property of Race Point Publishing, 2013!

Glam Nail Studio starts out with the basics, from the structure of nails to historical nail trends. it will guide you through what you need to take care of your nails (both hands and feet!), and from there, how to take care of those tools.

here's a look at page 12, which illustrates the structure of the nail!

next up Glam Nail Studio guides you through all sorts of nail polishes and treatments... including the best colors for your individual skin tone! page 46 is my skin tone; i love that it's illustrated, not just stated in the text... this way you can actually see how the different colors look with your skin.

in addition to teaching you all about polishes and nail art products (including add-ons, like crystals and studs!), Glam Nail Studio also provides information on things like Reflexology and even manicures for pets!

page 98 starts the look at Reflexology, the chapter includes charts for both the hands and feet.

the most exciting part of the book comes up last... nail art tutorials! they are so creative, and each is step-by-step explained in detail so that you will be able to recreate it yourself.

page 180 and 181 details the adorable frosted cupcake design!

as you can see, i needed a heavy bookmark to hold open the book for pictures... that would be my only complaint at all... i would love to see this book in a spiral bound edition. however, the content makes up for it! the book is hardcover and 224 pages... including a handy glossary and index at the end.

Glam Nail Studio is available from,, and anywhere books are sold! it retails for $25. this is the direct link to the book's page on Amazon... at the time of publishing this blog post it's priced at $18.22!

i hope you enjoyed this look at Glam Nail Studio by Amber-Elizabeth Stores. i can't recommend it highly enough, it's worth every penny! i'm so thankful i had the opportunity to review this book... i actually had never even heard of it until i was contacted about it. will you be picking up your own copy? 

Happy Monday! Ria :)
