A Question I like to askIf you could make a living out of doing what you love, what would that be?
A person who inspires me dailyMy mother, hard-working and always positive. She is the strongest woman I know.
A place I go to rewindNetflix with the beau. Or, duh. My nail art desk. :)
An idea I am working onAlways challenging myself to push further. Working towards my professional goals as future optician by day and nail artist by night.
The day everything worksIs the day I can accomplish perfectly symmetrical winged eyeliner on the first try
My message to the worldDon’t be afraid of change. It can be rather refreshing
Just the bottle and meNail art used to intrigue me at the outset. And soon it changed into a keen interest to be passionately pursued. When I joined Instagram a few years ago, I started exploring this world of colourful self – expression and was at once captivated by the vast range of shades and the uniqueness of designs I found there. Right away I purchased a few bottles of polish online and was ready to try it out myself. My very first designs were made of scotch tape and fast-dry top coat :)
Yeah! Chevrons it isRight from the beginning I knew tape was a wonderfully quick multitask tool. One of my favourite designs is the clean cut chevron starting right at the cuticles. I love pairing the chevrons in contrasting color, utilizing textured polishes, using glitter or creating ombre effects with a sponge. There are so many ways to pull off an eye-catching chevron. The dry-brush technique is also simple yet effective. One can transform an otherwise plain mani into something fun with just a few quick strokes of it, no other tools will be needed. For me, as long as the design looks uncluttered and complements its accompanying colors, it’s a complete win.
Growing aspirationI am currently in my final year of Optical Sciences and very soon I’ll be a licensed optician. I greatly enjoy what I do at work, especially my daily interaction with new customers. I keep an eye on the evolving fashion trends and also on the changing trends in eyewear. I do nail art during my downtime. My growing aspiration will surely lead me towards further creative growth. I want my passion for nail art to expand this way and I am always keen to pick up new techniques and tips along the way.
