He experiments a lot with different designs on his daughter’s digits, and she will tell him that she likes them or (politely) let him know that she is not the biggest fan of his latest nail art creation. He posts pics of his daughter’s nails (along with photos of his celebrity work) on Instagram. Whatever his method, it seems to work both for his family life and his career, which is touching and inspiring.

In our recent article on nail trends for Summer 2013, we highlighted several popular styles and one color in particular: orange.
