What got you into doing nails?

I remember stumbling across a nail polish blog (I don’t remember the name) and I was just so fascinated. I was a tomboy, so nail polish wasn’t something I thought about at all; however this blog really opened my eyes and got me hooked. After spending days learning and filling my curiosity, I sought out and bought my first 3 essie polishes – Pink Diamond, Play Date and Bikini so Teeny in 2012 and I’ve been doing my nails since. I was horrible but practice makes perfect!

Your favorite kind of nail art design to do?

I am a gradient fanatic! I love blending multiple colours together. I also love stamping too.

A nail polish shade you couldn’t live without?

This is a bit tricky, but if I had to it would be any white polish. It looks amazing by itself and also the perfect base for all gradients.

Other nail artist(s) you admire?

@alinasnailplace, @yyulia_m, @alla_nails, @nailpolishsociety @yagala, @lieve91, @epicnemy, @son_nail, @redheadnails, @shannasnailadventures@lakodzen, @barby__1987, @clairestelle8 + so many more.

What do you like to do besides nail art?

I am a total nature geek, I love being outside and I am into astrology. Dance is a passion of mine, I like to bake/cook too!

If you could travel anywhere where would you go and why?

Hawaii! I’m very interested in the culture, but of course lying on the beach with a cocktail or two would be relaxing, while I take in the scenery.
