Nail designs will travel.
I was traveling to Cuba this year and visiting some local people in Puerto Padre a little town in Los Tunas in Holguin. Every year I go there and I notice the great nail designs. Even in a place where many things are not available you can find art. Almost every woman has nails and they have beautiful designs. Cuba is a place where people live in a time bubble, old movies are on TV and they can’t get anything there but they manage to make due with what they have. Being in that situation creates some very interesting resourcefulness. I think Cubans can fix anything. When it comes to nail art I found if amazing how they are up to date in nail art fashion since they are not exposed to media and the modern fast paced outside world revolving around them.
I brought some nail polishes, brushes and jewels to a local lady and she did some designs on a young girl who lived near by. She was so happy to receive the gifts I gave her and she showed me the design she did. Goes to show how popular nails art really is. I have been doing nails for 20 years now and have never really delved into nail art except years ago when air brush was popular. I love art and paint as well so this is a new door opening in an profession I have been in for years. There is always new and creative ways to reinvent your nail business or any business you are in. Blending art into my already existing business is fun, refreshing and puts a refreshing new spin on things.
So many designs so little time…
