My aunt Cleide is the person who introduced me to the 'nail' world. She used to take me to the nail salon every Saturday, when I was 11, in an attempt to stop me from pulling my nails. Some 15 years later, here I was wearing her favourite darker polish for my first attempt of doing my own colourful nails.
It took me a while, and I wasn't exactly thrilled with the results. But I found it OK for a first attempt, hoping it got better with time.
