Leo Burnett said “Curiosity about life in all of its aspect, I think, is still the secret of great creative people” , words that reflects the very creative genius of Sarah Waite, blogger of Chalkboard Nails , a young American guru of nail art.
Entering on his blog we kidnapped by a sparkling of colors and patterns, a world in which all aspects of life become the result of inspiration from the fashion world to nature, passing through glitter prints and fantasies of all kinds.

Tell us about yourself . Why you choose to work as a blogger? Why you are interested in nail art?
I started doing nail art in 2011. It began as a hobby, but quickly grew into something more as I realized that nail art is my passion! I enjoy sharing my work with my readers, and seeing their recreations or interpretations of my designs is one of my greatest joys.
Nail art is so wonderful because the possibilities are endless. You can do crazy nail art, you can go more subtle… There’s always nail art to fit your personality or to fit the occasion.
Tell me about yourself, your study, your dreams, your works…
I live in Phoenix, Arizona in the United States with my fiance and our little doggie. I recently quit my job to attend nail school, and now I work as a nail technician at a local spa. My goal is to change the public perception of nail art — many people think that nail art can only be tacky or garish, when I know that’s not true.
When and how did you get into nail art?
Around 4 years ago, I was online and I came across a leopard print nail art tutorial. I thought it was really cute and wanted to do it myself, so I went to the drugstore after work and picked up the supplies that I needed to try it out. I was hooked!
How do you usually come up with nail art ideas?
I draw inspiration from a number of different sources. Right now, I’m trying to perfect the style of Japanese nail artists. Their nail sets are always so refined and balanced. I also love getting inspired by nature, fashion, fabrics, pop culture… You can truly find ideas anywhere!
About your Disney nail art?
I’ve always been a huge Disney fan since I was a kid! It was only natural to combine my love for all things Disney with my nail art passion.
