Your real name and Instagram handle:
My name is Aanchal and my Instagram is @aanchysnails
Where are you from?
I’m from Canada.
What got you into doing nails?
I always loved having my nails painted since I was a child. I’d always ask my mom to paint my nails for me. Then in high school I started posted pictures of my nails online, that’s when I discovered this awesome community! I noticed people would like and comment on my art so I continued to post and fell in love with trying different designs and always having my nails polished.
Your favorite kind of nail art design to do?
Abstract floral designs are my absolute favourite! But I really do enjoy minimalist negative space designs as well.
A nail polish shade you couldn’t live without?
I couldn’t live without pink! I adore every shade of pink.
Other nail artist(s) you admire?
There are tons of amazing nail artists I admire. I’ll list a few, but there are so many more! @redheadnails, @nail_art_by_tal, @nbnailart, @nailsuponatime
What do you like to do besides nail art?
Other than nail art, I love to workout. Weight training is my favourite but I’ve really been getting into HIIT exercises lately. I also love to hang out with my dog, Sunny.
What is something you are trying to improve this year?
I would love to improve my time management skills; I have a really bad habit of procrastinating. I end up getting everything done on time, but having a little bit of wiggle room would be fantastic.
What kind of nail art do you find the most difficult to do?
I find free hand nail art to be the most difficult. I’m actually trying to get better at free hand art. I think I’ve improved a little bit but still have a long way to go.
