Nail artist Brenda Pattison has been fortunate enough to have shared her celebrity nail portraits with their subjects.

Rockers Steven Tyler and Ozzy Osbourne are both proud owners of Brenda Pattison originals. Pattison, the owner of Nail Designs by Brenda in Inkster, Mich., and a huge music fan, began painting portraits of her favorite rock stars on nail tips in an effort to get her work noticed. “I love Aerosmith, so I did a nail of Steven Tyler and I got the rare chance to meet him backstage at a show here in Detroit,” says Pattison. “I showed him the nail and his reaction was amazing.

He asked me if he could have it, which is a great compliment.” Recently she had another thrill when Sharon Osbourne showed off three of Pattison’s nail portraits on her syndicated talk show.

The nails featured Sharon and Ozzy, along with their pooch Minnie. Speaking to Brenda on the air, Osbourne said, “I’d like a full set of nails as soon as you can do them, because I’ll wear them every day. I love them.”
