NAILS: What do you use to make your designs? Do you favor acrylics or gels, or a mix?

Sereditskaya: I work with every kind of nail material. In almost every one of my works there is acrylic, gel, and paint.

NAILS: Do you paint or draw on anything else besides nails?

Sereditskaya: Sometimes I decorate accessories like mobile phones, but only a few times. I really just concentrate on my nail skills.

NAILS: So how did you get started working on nails?

Sereditskaya: Since childhood I have bitten my nails, and my hands were always in a terrible state. People always told me to go to salons, but I always refused until I was 20 years old and agreed to go.

At that time I did not understand the difference between acrylic and gel, and I did not care which material was to be used on my nails. Soon after I started doing nails myself, and I could not tell the difference between expert nails and nails made by a beginner.

It wasn’t until I bought a nail magazine and got to see high-quality nails that I understood. The nails I was doing then were just awful, so I decided to take them seriously since that moment.

NAILS: Do you work in a salon, or do you go to clients?

Sereditskaya: At the moment I’m working at home and I have a nice room to work in. This year I was going to open a nail studio, but due to the financial crisis the opening was postponed.   

 

 


Liliya says the most popular nail style in Ukraine is “of course” stiletto. “More than 80% of my clients prefer stiletto,” she says. “Even though they’re long, they’re still the most popular in Ukraine.”
