My first job was…

As a student worker at the campus library in college.

If I could be anyone famous, I would be…

Andy Warhol.

I am inspired by…

Contemporary art and fashion.

My proudest accomplishment is…

When I quit my day job and took a leap of faith to start doing nails full time.

My favorite movie is…

The Japanese film “Tampopo.” It’s about a truck driver who coaches the owner of a ramen shop, who has no cooking skills, to become a master ramen chef.

My perfect day is… 

Lounging in bed with my two cats, Yuca and Pepe, and watching TV.

Fariha 2Are you a morning or night person?

Definitely a night person. All of my clients know I hate to wake up early.

My favorite type of food is…

Spicy Asian food, like Korean, Szechuan and Thai.

My most recent impulse buy was…

A Dyson hair dryer. It has changed my life!

My guilty pleasure is…

Watching Korean dramas. The stories are usually so outlandish that it’s like reading a fantasy novel.

Fariha 4I can’t discuss nails without…

Stressing the importance of learning the foundations.
