Get to Know Kristi!
Who is Kristi?
Kristi is a social media #girlboss who is on just about every platform imaginable! She shares her nail art hobby on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube AND her blog that she's been writing for five years!
What inspires her nail colors & nail art?
Kristi gets inspiration from her surroundings. Flowers, patterns in clothing, greeting card designs and fellow nail artists all get her creative juices flowing! Kristi also loves deconstructing images or items into manis. For example, if she is inspired by Henry and Buzz (her kitty fur babies) she could work in a few lines for the whiskers, a triangle for an ear and maybe a little paw print. Isn't she so creative?!
Mani / pedi color combo advice?
Complementary colors are her favorite types of combos! How about a little Color Clutch Color lesson? Complementary colors are defined by colors across from each other on the color wheel. Some of Kristi's favorite complementary color combos are pink & green, blue & orange, and yellow & purple!

Fun fact about Kristi?
While she loves painting her nails, it is strictly a hobby. When not making her beautiful art, Kristi works as an engineer for a company that makes computer chips. Painting her nails allows her to use her creative side, while being an engineer stimulates her self-proclaimed "inner nerd." Her job also helps support that nail polish addiction that we know we all have!
