Q: When did you start doing nails?
A: 2009 - got my nail license before my second year of college so I could have a fun job to pay my way through school!
Q: Where are you originally from?
A: A small island in the middle of nowhere called Sitka, Alaska!
Q: What is your favorite NCLA Color?
A: On Sundays We Brunch - it’s a client favorite because I’ve convinced all my clients to love it!
Q: What's your favorite part of LA?
A: Highland Park
Q: Round or Square?
Q: What's your biggest nail no no?
A: I'll say it every day of my life - DON'T rip your gels off!
Q: Nude or red?
Q: Favorite NCLA Cuticle oil scent?
A: So Rich Rose Petals
Q: Any advance on girls that want to start a career in nails?
A: Nail art can look amazing, but that won’t mean a thing if your manicure can’t last more than a couple days on your clients. Perfect the basics and take the time to hone your craft before diving head first into the creative/nail art space. Figure out your style and strengths and use those to set yourself apart on social media and in your workspace.
Q: If you weren't a celebrity nail stylist, what would you be doing?
A: Songwriting for artists, TV and film (what I went to school for)
Q: Fav LA salon?
A: Color Camp (+ they carry NCLA!)
Q: Any tips to make your mani last longer?
A: Wear gloves while doing dishes or cleaning with water, keep a top coat at home and apply one coat every other day to re-seal the paint, and moisturize cuticles at least once a day!
Q: Where to get coffee in LA?
A: Steampunk - a local hidden gem in Valley Village
