What inspires my nail art:

Typically, by the time I sit down to paint, my mind has already conjured up some sort of design. Although, when I'm having a bad case of painters block, Pinterest is my ultimate go-to. I like to be original, so anything from wrapping paper to a cute crop-top can get me started!

How long have you been doing nail art:

There was really no defining moment when I began experimenting with nail art, but if I had to guess, probably around 4-5 years. I always got a kick out of the reactions I got from my friends and classmates when I came in with a new design. (Especially back when I had enough free time to change my polish on a daily basis!)

What inspires my nail art:

My nail artistry is inspired by being pro-self-esteem. I design my nails based on what will help brighten up my day another shade! Pro self-esteem is all about supporting your own happiness and confidence, so I love extending my confidence from within myself onto my nails. Some say I wear my heart on my sleeves, but I believe I wear my heart on my nails.

How long have I been doing nail art:

I have been doing nail art since middle school! Middle school is a tough stage in any young person's life, so I used nail art as a medium for me to create balance within myself. It was --and still is-- nail art therapy! Fast forward to today and I am still using nail art as a form of self-expression.

May Finalist

What inspires my nail art:

I find inspiration for my nail art all over! I enjoy putting my own spin on trends I come across through browsing the web and social media. I also take a lot of inspiration from seasons and holidays throughout the year creating fun and festive designs. But my favorite way to be inspired is to just fall in love with a new polish or color scheme and let my mind wander until I come up with a way to unify the designs onto my nails.

How long have you been doing nail art:

I was fascinated by nail art at a very young age, so I started attempting nail designs with tooth picks around age 8, which would make it 14 years, but I have been a nail artist professionally for a little over a year now.

What inspires my nail art?

I've always been obsessed with Japanese nail art. It's so intriguing to me how each nail is like a piece of art work and when it's put all together it brings out an individual's personality.

How long have you been doing nail art?

For the past four years nails have been my passion.
