Online PR News – 24-October-2014 – NAILTHINS ( and, the patent-pending, micro-thin nail overlays developed by former nail technician Jeanette Downing are creating buzz from BRAVOS Real Housewives to the Golden Globes.

The overlays appeal to girly-girls who want fashion at their fingertips, animal lovers who smile at the sight of their beloved pets silhouette and arty types who want to show off their crafty passions. There is something for everyone, smiled Jeanette. I agree with my former brother-in-law Ken Downing, Fashion Director at Neiman Marcus, when he says, More is more, less is a bore.

NAILTHINS are not a sticker or a water decal, but a state of the art addition to the field of nail art and design. At only 25 microns thick, comparable to half a hairs width, they are micro-thin, flexible, and conform beautifully to the nail bed. They are non-toxic and work with all natural, acrylic and gel nail systems. Used in conjunction with traditional polish, they add strength and durability, prolonging the life of a manicure.

The overlays are flexible and easy to apply, and can be layered and repositioned with ease. Designs are vector-based and created using the finest professional graphic imaging and manufacturing hardware. Jeanette says, NAILTHINS images render vibrantly and perfectly. They are never distorted or pixelated, so your design looks like it has been professional painted on.

The blog has awarded the companys Eiffel Tower and Black Bow designs its number two and five spots respectively for Best Nail Decals.

Jeanette received her esthetician and nail technician license in 1988. Her exposure to the field of nail art as part of her practice inspired her to try her hand at creating a better nail decal. Today, although she still enjoys giving the occasional manicure, she dedicates the majority of her time to running NAILTHINS. Jeanette hopes her success story provides inspiration for others to pursue their passions. She is a firm believer that, a creative dream, coupled with hard work and perseverance, will become a reality.
