Known on Instagram as @pretty_fingertips, Suzie is a great nail tech from Canada, always with a positive vibe and lovely, glamorous manicures! She gets her inspiration from Pinterest and Social Media and her "secret weapon" when it comes to manicure is...PATIENCE!
Let's discover her story!
MG: How did you get your start in your nail career? Well, it’s always something I was into! I started nail art blogging with regular polish about 8-9 years ago and it took off from there!
MG: What challenges did you face along the way? Well, where I live it was hard to get people into nail art in general... everyone liked French and basic...it took some time, but I changed a lot of minds!
MG: Where do you get your inspiration from?
Everywhere scenery, Pinterest, tons of amazing and talented artists on Social Media!
MG: Your biggest tip for the perfect DIY manicure? Patience.... and great prep work!
MG: How many nail polishes do you own? A lot less than I used to! But I haven’t counted them lately.
MG: What are your 3 fav gels from Madam Glam? Ooooh, it’s so hard to choose only 3! Back to Cali, Sweater Weather (currently on my nails) and Perfect Black!
MG: What nail trend are you loving right now? Hmmm... tortoise shell.... and always leopard print!
MG: What are your goals/dreams for the future? To live a fulfilled and happy life... less stress, more inner peace.... that sort of thing.
MG: Which celebrity would be your dream client? Why? Ohhhh, I don't know! I really like Ginnifer Goodwin, I’ve always admired her style, and she’s just so adorable!
MG: What advice would you offer someone considering this career? Take your time, go the extra mile.... take pride in your work and keep learning!
MG: What is most challenging about what you do? Right now, it’s staying steady.... with another shut down for the industry here, it’s tough to stay positive... but I’m prepared to learn some new things, do some classes and keep my creativity sharp!
