Senior Henna Arvind doesn’t remember exactly when her obsession with nail art began. “I remember always being a fan of having my nails painted when I was a little kid,” Arvind said. “I started by buying a bunch of stickers and kind of experimenting with that, and then I got tools and then I was able to do artwork on my nails,” she said. “I love doing art, so it’s kind of cool doing it on my nails.”

Arvind’s designs range from Christmas trees to peacock feathers, although flowers are her most common design. Arvind finds inspiration for designs on social media websites like Instagram and Tumblr, and she tries to recreate them while making them her own. Arvind stresses the importance of patience in the process.

“Sometimes when I really want to achieve a nail design I will spend a lot of time on it and if I don’t like something I’ll start totally over,” she said. Arvind also practices her art by painting her friends’ nails. “My friends love it when I paint their nails, which is awesome because you only get one palette on yourself,” she said. “I don’t like having plain nails. I feel like they’re bare and boring.” ♦
