If I had one wish, it would to be better at painting my nails and to have the ability to do nail art. My favourite nail artist on the internet has to be Robin Moses, she is so inspirational and her videos are really insightful and helpful. When I asked her a couple of questions, I would never have thought she would have been as enthusiastic to help as she was! Robin is a nail artist from Florence, Oregon. She is an internet sensation and has nearly 24,000 Facebook likes, has been featured in many nail art magazines and has won many awards.

I wish I was talented enough to be able to paint my nails like this! Youtube her tutorials to see if you can do much better than me!
What made you want to start a blog about your nails?
What made me create a blog was that on Youtube you really can't get a good photo of your work. I wanted my viewers to be able to go to my blog and supersize my pics and hopefully get more true colors and see them really well. Many people do so much photoshopping on nails that they look like paintings. This hinders my work. I want workable, doable designs that are 'real.'
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to star nail art?
If you can do nail art? You have got a great career. This is a very hard job that is very multi-faceted.
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start a nail art business?
In today's world, women want to be heard and have a place to go to relax and not have to worry about their lives being gossiped about. It is MOST important to BE ON TIME and to always listen, to keep your station clean and to never agree or disagree too strongly - there are many reasons to remain neutral. It gives them full trust in you, your services and your friendship. You are EARS for them to unload into.
Robin describes this advice as "coming from my heart."
I would advise you to check out Robin's blog and Youtube as it is inspirational what she can do with nails and it is full of great ideas and how to carry them out.
Hope everything is well!
