Tape is my forever loveWhen I was first introduced to Pinterest two and a half years ago, I was so inspired by photos of nail art that I tried my first tape manicure and have been hooked ever since! I enjoy using other mediums such as water marbling, sponge gradients, and the occasional free hand doodle; however, tape is my forever love. I always watch in amazement as I peel the tape off of my nail to reveal sharp lines and a fun design. Also, my creativity with different color combinations and polish applications always feels exciting!
Escape! Escape!The simple act of painting my nails provides me allows me to spoil myself and wind down after a long day at work. Although I absolutely love my profession of mental health counseling, it is quite a demanding job. Nail art gives me an escape into myself and my creativity helps me to carry on with a healthy and balanced mind at my work.
Freedom I loveI see myself continuing as a hobbyist. I once considered becoming licensed, but I think that doing this professionally could dampen my enjoyment of it. I occasionally paint my friends’ nails, and even that can be stressful! I love the freedom of having my own hand close to my face and doing whatever comes to mind. As I continue to attract more people online who like my work, a major goal is to just keep painting what I feel like and not worry about doing what I think other people want to see. I love nail art and am so glad I discovered it!
