Transcript

Hi. My name's Megan Toth; I run a blog called NailsAndAles.com. It's where I combine 2 of my favorite things in the world; craft beer and nail art. I translate the beer labels onto my nails.

I got started in nail art when I was about 14-years-old, at my first job working at a salon. All of the nails techs there were amazing at hand-painted nail art. Back in the '90s, you really didn't see that a lot; you saw a lot of airbrushing. Nail art wasn't very prevalent back then. For some reason at this salon, these ladies, they did it and they did it really well. I picked up their tips and tricks, some of which I will teach you in this series. It really stuck with me and became one of my passions. I remember wanting to be a nail artist when I was in high school, but college got in the way of that.

You see a lot of videos out there where there are professionals that are teaching you how to do nail art on a hand model, and that's not how you can do it at home. I want to teach you guys how you can do it on yourselves. The first question I get whenever people see my nails is, "How do you paint with your non-dominant hand?" I'm right-handed, so they ask, "How do you paint with your left hand?" It takes a lot of practice, that's key, but there are also some tips and tricks on how to make it easier for you. I want to teach everybody at home that you can do this, too. It takes a little bit of time, but there are also some ways that you can get through it and make it a little bit easier on yourself as you practice.
