Once again, I am deeply honored to tell you that Manila Standard Today (MST) did a feature on yours truly as a nail artist. MST is a local newspaper that is distributed daily all over the Philippines. The article, entitled A Different Kind of Art, appeared today -- Sunday, 27 January 2013 -- at the Art and Life section.
Look! We even made it the front page!

Under my headshot, it read:
A Different Kind of Nail Art
Rina Francisco Alcantara considers nail art her form of self-expression.
I was personally interviewed by Dinna Chan Vasquez, assistant lifestyle editor of MST, a few weeks back. I want to openly thank her for the well-written feature. This article nailed (!) my story as a nail artist. And my profile was rightly expressed.
Dinna concluded the newspaper feature with my top 10 nail designs of 2012. I could only wish there were pictures to accompany those designs so readers would be able to relate.
Here's a bird's eye view of the story:

Beside my personal picture, it read:
Rina Alcantara is an art-loving entrepreneur.
If you're a fellow Pinoy and have chanced upon a newspaper stand today, may I invite you to read the article and perhaps you can share with me with your thoughts.
For my international friends, and to those who can't grab a printed copy, you may read the full feature here.
