Get to know the lovely lady behind @kellimarissa!

Who is Kelli?

Kelli runs an AWESOME YouTube channel and Instagram page that features nail art tutorials, makeup tutorials, tip videos and beauty product reviews. With her nail art, Kelli focuses on nail designs using tools that most of us would already have at home. Kelli has short nails, so her tips are great for those of us that aren't #blessed with a super large nail canvas. 

Go-to mani hack?

"Honestly, my biggest tip for people is to use what you have!" Kelli often gets told by followers that they wish they could buy expensive products so they could get better at painting their nails and doing nail art. But to that, Kelli says, "trust me, you don't need anything crazy! I am the sloppiest painter ever and I clean up my manicures using a cheap acetone and a $1 concealer brush from Walmart." Most of her nail art is created using Scotch tape, the end of a pencil, an old paint brush, a plastic bag, etc. "Just use what you have and be creative!"

That creativity can be seen below in some of her recent art pieces:

Fave mani/pedi color combo? 

For this one, Kelli told her secret - she only gives herself a pedicure once or twice per season! "Pedicures last so long for me so I just don’t bother very often, but I always make sure to pick a seasonally appropriate color." That makes life easier, huh?! Right now, Kelli is rocking a bright ocean blue on her toes for the summer season. 

Fun fact about Kelli? 

* We have another Color Clutch blog exclusive here *

This is something Kelli hasn’t ever shared before - her nails are square on her right hand and oval on her left hand! Kelli is a lefty and she wears contact lenses, and contacts + square nails aren't the best combo. "It sounds silly, but nobody has ever noticed!"


We hope you've enjoyed getting to know Kelli!
