TELL US HOW YOU GOT STARTED IN NAIL ART? When I was 18 years old, I wanted to make art on my body somehow, and Nails turned out to be the right direction to explore. Nails are very easy to change every week or month according to my mood, and I think it’s perfect for me! Nails have never been only “manicure” to me. I have always conceived them as a form of art.
