Who is Toxic Vanity?

Who is Toxic Vanity? 1

My name is Silvia Gago, a Barcelonan living in Ponferrada (León, Spain) for more than five years, better known as "Toxic Vanity”, the name with which I baptized my nail art blog in 2011 and that without knowing it would become my alter ego and my dream come true.

With an artistic vocation from the cradle, my restless mind and thirsty for learning has led me to more than 25 years fully immersed in the world of art as a multidisciplinary artist learning each of these techniques and enriching myself artistically and personally (graffiti, custom, illustration , hyperrealism with pen, nail art…). 

I started in this beautiful world of nails in 2011 and I could not stop, I discovered that it is what I liked to do the most. In 2019 I started giving face-to-face courses in my country, Spain. I have always thought that art is made to be shared, sharing my knowledge with other people is wonderful. That same year I entered the Nailympion competition in Madrid for the first time, in the Flat Art Division 1 modality, of which I was champion with a 3rd prize.

During these years I have developed my own teaching technique after 12 years specializing in nail art and micro painting, so that whatever your level, you learn in a simple and fun way.

In full confinement of the year 2020 we created the website and the Online Academy to be able to offer quality training to all those people who, for whatever reason, cannot do it in person.

As of today, I have certified more than 8000 students and this wonderful work has led me to give courses in countries such as Spain, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Peru. I keep working hard, training, reinventing myself to teach you the latest techniques in nail art and give my best in each training so that you can achieve your excellence.

Thank you for your unconditional support, especially to all my students, you are also part of the team Toxic Vanity 🖤
