I had quite an unsatisfactory experience with the television network a few months back so I was a little hesitant to accept the offer. But given the circumstance that it is handled by a different group, I accepted the invitation.
Demonstrating freehand nail art.
Initially, I was asked to demonstrate nail designs on my hands, toes, and to a model. Personally, that is a lot for a freehand nail artist. Hand painted nail art takes more time compared to other techniques. No thanks to a fever that got me the night before the shooting, I ended up just demonstrating some Halloween and Christmas nail designs on a very friendly model.
As promised, here's the nail art segment for my international friends and to those who missed it last Tuesday night. Sadly, the video is in Tagalog and there is no English subtitle. To help you understand a little, the news is to create awareness that nail art is slowly trending and being accepted here in the Philippines. It also informs that there are various techniques as to how to have them such as freehand, digital printers, and water decals.

As a nail artist, I could only wish for a more detailed feature on nail art in the near future. There are so much more into this art, specially how it affects lifestyle. I personally believe the reasons behind why people are into it nowadays is a matter worth understanding.
Again, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who supports me and my nail art designs. This recognition and opportunity is not possible without all of you. :)
