Describe your NAHA Collection in 1 word. 



Where were you when you found out you were chosen as a NAHA Finalist? Describe that moment in 3 words.

Computer Face Plant


Any advice for nail artists looking to take their artistry to the next level? 

Keep reaching for varied inspiration; use every little thing that slightly sticks! What doesn’t work will fall away, so don’t sweat it. Experiment and stay educated.


Why Nails?

I’m a fan of the little canvases that adorn our digits. As fashion designer Prabal Gurung once stated, nail polish is the full stop -the final period – to a collection.


Matte finish or shiny?

You’ll find a combination of the two in many of my designs


What’s your party trick?

The elegantly artful nail and glittering with discretion


Tell us your go-to Nailstyle. Color, shape, etc.

Nothing beats a beautiful Almond or Oval shaped nude / neutral with just a bit of micro-glitter or pigment or crystals.


We’re going to Vegas! Where will we find you? Poolside, dancing the night away at the clubs, gambling, or relaxing and taking advantage of restaurants and room service?

When I’m not at PBA Beauty Week? If it’s Vegas, it’s showtime! JLo? Let’s go. Celine Dion? Bring it on.
