New York Nail Artist
A short story of how a Belarusian professional piano player became a nail artist in New York City
Hello, my name is Dasha and I’m from Belarus. This is a relatively small country, so, if you don’t know where it is located – it is OK, just take a look at Eastern Europe right between Poland and Russia. Here it is. Now let’s go from geography to a little about who I am. Drawing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I was even taking art lessons, but my Mom had already started dreaming about her daughter becoming a musician. As you might have already guessed, I graduated from the Conservatory of Music in 2008 and worked as a concertmaster and piano teacher in a music school. My pupils and I have participated in countless competitions and concerts. Drawing and designing of clothes have remained my favorite hobbies.
New York City
I moved to the United States in 2016. Changing the country where you live is a great challenge but also it is a great opportunity to change something else in your life, a career path for example. By that time I had become a little bit tired of music. I started wondering what kind of career I could choose. I like the beauty industry, I like drawing, I like doing something with my hands and seeing the results of my work. Nail Art fits all these wishes. That is how I became a licensed New York nail artist.
Happy clients – happy me
What I’m really enjoy about my work – it is a great feeling when I finish a client’s nails and I see joy and happiness on their face. I’m trying to build fair and friendly relations with my clients and they pay me the same way – by coming back as soon as they can.
