Nail Addicts Studio owner Strebler started painting nails as a hobby. “In high school, art was the only class I was really good at,” says Strebler. “I decided to combine my love for nails with my passion for art and turn it into a career.” Inspired by tattoo artists, 90s cartoons and her childhood memorabilia, Strebler says that as of lately, she’s mastering the art of shading. “I mix clear top coat with black gel polish to create a shading color, which gives my hand-painted characters dimension and makes them really stand out.” The self-taught artist uses Bio Seaweed Gel, Presto and Young Nails products for her unique nail designs—one of which, Cardi B shared on her Instagram!
