I’m a total manicure devotee.
No matter what the occasion, the season or the style, I love me some nail magic. From pretty neutrals in an at-home paint job to rose gold tips or full-on nail art by the pro’s. I’m up for it all!
So I’m sure you get my excitement when I got in touch with nail guru Fakher Beauty nails. She’s a true tastemaker in the field – some living proof here and here – and her elaborate designs led to collabs with Vogue, Adidas and Maybelline (she’s their Dutch nail art ambassador). In between working with brands and doing editorial shoots, she’s up for a private session every now and then.
A few days later I can confirm that statement nails are the perfect conversation starter. I’ve turned a handful (no pun intended) of strangers into blog readers, and since I talk with my hands a lot this is something fun that stands out and makes people curious. I’m a little happier every time I look at my nails so be warned: I might not be able to stop.
PS. If there’s anything you’d love to see a DIY for, let me know in the comments and we might just do a step-by-step breakdown!
