Pamper Nail Gallery creative manager Brittnay Lopez used to request a full set with no polish at her local salon, only to go home and paint them herself. A couple years after graduating college, the self-taught nail artist tried sculpting her own acrylic nails.
“I was hooked,” exclaimed Lopez. “Even though I never had official training, I pushed myself to focus on sculpting with both acrylic and gel. Now that I feel I have sculpting and shaping down, this past year I’ve been honing in on painting characters and scenery. Doing nails has allowed me to push myself creatively, while also challenging myself. This is 100 percent my dream job!”
