I love nail art—been doing it for years, um, been getting it DID for years. I had the raddest, weirdest nails waaaaay before Willow Smith was on the scene. Swarovski crystals, 3D designs that were painstakingly done one petal at a time, multi-color hand-painted scenes, etc — all done by my amazing nail artist Thomas. I had it all. Or so I thought!
