Who is Toxic Vanity? 1

My name is Silvia Gago, although I'm sure you'll know me by my stage name Toxic Vanity, y am International Master of Nail Art.

Born and raised in Spain, I have an artistic vocation from the cradle, possessing a restless mind and thirsty for constant learning, are more than 25 years as a multidisciplinary artist behind my back, learning each of these techniques that have enriched me personally and professionally: graffiti, custom, illustration, hyperrealism with a pen and last but not least nail art that changed my life.

I started in the world of nails in 2011 and I could not stop, I discovered that it is my passion. In 2019 I started my journey as a nail art instructor in my country, Spain.. I always thought that art is made to be shared, sharing my knowledge with other people is wonderful.

Additionally, I have competed in several international competitions to be able to get out of my comfort zone and continue growing as an artist, winning awards in all the competitions I have entered to date:

  • Nailympion Spain 2019 3rd prize Flat Art Tip Box Div. 1 
  • Nailympion Portugal 2023 Div 1 1st prize Flat Art Tip Box and 1st prize Salon Trend Manicure Tip Box
  • Nailympia London 2023 Div 3, 3rd prize Runway Nails, 2nd prize Design Nails for an Album Cover, 3rd prize Art on Nails (more than 2 inches long)
  • Nailympion Spain 2023 Div 2, 1st prize Flat Art Tip Box, 1st prize Mix Media and 2nd prize Salon Trend Manicure Tip Box.

During these years I have developed my own teaching technique so that whatever the level of my students, they learn in a simple and fun way.

Today, I have certified more than 10.000 students around the world, I have certified myself as Nailympion International Judge (NIJ) and I have imparted courses in Spain, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Peru and Chile.

I continue working hard, constantly training and learning, reinventing myself to provide my students with the latest techniques in nail art and give my best in each training so that everyone who sits in my classroom can achieve their goals.
