Crazy Hatter

Today we’re interviewing the talented Dess a.k.a dess_sure on Instagram. Check out more of her nail art in her Nailpolis gallery as well!

1. Help us get to know the girl behind the nails!
I live on a tiny tropical island. I do not like glamour, fashion, nor heels. I have a fear of flying. Someday, I would like to have a cow.

2. What’s your most used nail art tool/brush?
My detailing brush is always by my side.

Color Makes Me Happy

3. Do you listen to music or watch tv while doing your nails, or do you prefer to concentrate on your work?
Soothing Chinese music makes mani time a wonderful experience for me. I sing along while i paint.

4. When did you first get into the amazing world of nail art?
In early 2012, after seeing beautiful photos of nails online, I started playing with polish. By 2013, it became a full-blown addiction.

5. If you had to pick, which of your designs are you the most proud of?
I am proud of the designs which demonstrate my originality and creativity. (Art such as “National bird and flower of Jamaica,” and “Chocolate in the sun.”)

6. Do you use acrylic paint in your designs, or stick to pure polish?
Due to the sticky consistency of nail polish, attempts to paint with it are very challenging for me. I use mostly acrylic paint as it saves me a lot of time.

A Colorful Mind

7. Do you think you’ll continue creating unique nail art as the years go by?
Yes. Nail art helps with my depression. I want to keep learning, keep practicing, keep improving, and keep having fun.

8. What’s your nail care routine like?
I use a nail strengthener as a base coat, and i apply vitamin E oil on my cuticles. But sadly, I do not have a proper nail care routine. I need to work on that.


9. What are some of your other hobbies?
Crocheting, and sailing.

10. Does your nail art ever get noticed while you’re out and about?
Many times. Usually, I wear loud colors and ‘crazy’ designs, so people can’t help but notice.
