What inspires your nail art?

Street & high fashion and any kind of art. I go to art museums, I go window shopping, look at fashion blogs, and I like to go to libraries and look at art books.

What brands and products do you use?

Presto LED Gel from Nail Labo. I love how there is a huge variety of colors, and also that I can order online wherever I am in the world, which is a big plus for me since I go on lots of business trips. Some different brands, depending on different times I buy a certain nail color, the quality differs, but Presto Gel is made in Japan so I can always rely on the best quality.

Do you have any nail art tips/tricks you can share with us?

It is easier to do art with a smoother polish, so I usually put a little bit of acetone into my polish. please check out my Youtube! I only put up one tutorial yet, but I have shared how to create a water marble effect. I plan to do a lot more tutorials soon!
