After working as a hairstylist since 2011, nail artist Jackson, who was born writing backwards in mirror image, always had a passion for drawing. “After losing my dad, who constantly told me that I was too talented to work for someone else, I decided life is too short not to follow my dreams,” says Jackson. “I took a leap of faith with no clientele and no money saved, in a town where I didn’t really know anyone to work for myself.” Juggling both nail and hair clients for 9 months, Jackson encountered a few bumps in the road that almost convinced her to give up on nails, until she found a mentor through a Facebook forum, who helped guide her through the nail industry. As her nail appointment books filled, Jackson found herself with less and less space for hair clients and decided to give up styling altogether to do what she was most passionate about—nails.
