Meet a Heroine: Nina Park from @ninanailedit

Your real name and Instagram handle:
 Nina Park @ninanailedit


Where are you from?
 I was born in Houston, Texas but I grew up in Orange County, California and I currently reside in Boston, MA.


What got you into doing nails?
 I started painting my nails when I was doing my MEd in Secondary Ed, student teaching, and playing roller derby when I first moved to Boston! I found that painting my nails was a great way to focus on myself and relax amidst my incredibly hectic schedule.


Your favorite nail art design to do?
 I absolutely love pastel, abstract designs accented with gold foil. But I also love any kind of floral!



A nail polish shade you couldn’t live without?
 I absolutely love a very pale, concrete creme gray. 


Other nail artist(s) you admire?
 I have so many nail artists I admire! @mpnails, @sohotrightnail, @nail_unistella, @flowidity108...


One of your all-time favorite manicures you have ever done?
 I think one of my favorite manicures was the abstract white, pink, black and gold mani for Nail Champ but I also love my Hokusai Great Wave manicures!




What do you like to do besides nail art?
When I'm not painting my nails or working on a project, I absolutely love to surf or spend time outside! 



What song are you playing on repeat at the moment?
 I'm so behind the curve on music. I just always listen to NPR... and Cardi B, every once in a while. 


Three things that make you happy:
Color, early mornings, sunshine.  


Favorite Social Platform?
 Instagram, for sure <3
