Tell us more about you: How did you get your start in nail art?
I loved nail art growing up and I would experiment on friends, family and myself all the time. Not until my time in NYC did I get serious about it. I worked at a nail art studio there and learned about so many different products and techniques that made the process more fun and creative. I learned that the possibilities are endless when it comes to nail art. When I moved back to Texas I continued to grow as a nail artist and now I have a '73 Shasta camper that I turned into a mobile nail studio! The combo of nail art and working out of a vintage camper makes work so fun!:)
Where do you get your inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere. It could be from a throw pillow or a pretty pattern on someone's shirt.
What is the craziest nail look you've ever created?
Maybe the Adele nails. I had so much fun doing them and used them to try and pitch doing her nails when her tour came to Dallas. Sadly I had no luck but maybe one day! Lol
What is your number one tip for nail art?
Make sure you have a clear vision of what you want to create before you start. Have a set theme and color palette so you end up with a cohesive design.
Shimmer or Glitter?
Wire and stud work.
Favorite style of nail art to create?
I love florals, abstract, geometric, and watercolor. (I can't choose just one!) I'm a painter so I love to do all of the hand painting!
What colors do you think will be in this spring/summer?
Still seeing lots of the rose quartz color! Also I'm thinking neon (especially yellow) will be hot for nails!
Any other trends you see on the horizon?
70's! Yea baby yea! :)
