 Nail Artistry by Tina Panariello



HANDPAINTED FINE NAIL ART BY TINA PANARIELLO

Tina Panariello

Author of "Polished: Filing Away at Life's Truths"



When she was eleven years old, she realized something was terribly wrong with the dynamic of the outer family members. Tina left this chapter out of her book due to the fact that the particular family member was still living and was protecting the family from shame.


I had the pleasure of sitting with Tina as she meticulously handpainted my nails and spoke about her life, her dreams and her passion for doing the very best!


Tina Panariello grew up in the Marlboro Projects in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. And she has written a book about her life experiences. Her journey from secretary to International Award-Winning Nail Artist includes a few stops along the way – actress, mother, businesswoman, competitor, teacher, salon owner, and author. And she paved her road with courage, curiosity, creativity, and perseverance. Through physical challenges, traumatic transitions, devastating financial disasters, and personal sorrows, her indomitable spirit and faith in humanity edged her forward.

It makes her feel proud to know “THAT NO ONE GAVE A DAMN ABOUT HER, BUT SHE GIVE’S A DAMN ABOUT YOU, AS YOU SHOULD GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOURSELF.”


Tina live’s by the words “I JUST DID IT” with no guidance, with a silent mentor, no professional schooling, in business that is, but she wanted what she wanted and would like to share with you through her motivational/inspirational speaking on how SHE did it.


Tina's love of art is not just handpainting nails.  She loves to paint and is commissioned to do various artwork for clients.


"I wanted to expand my artwork, so I decided to start painting furniture. First, one of my nail art clients asked if I would paint her television console. Through word-of-mouth it began to grow. From furniture to walls, murals in homes, a tree grows in a Staten Island entrance way, a swing and a birdcage, to a garden room, even telephones! I’ve painted bedrooms, hallways and living rooms. And I have painted a Tuscany kitchen!"


In addition to being an author and an artist, Tina also loves to teach.


"Teaching my hand-painted nail art is like a breath of fresh air. I have given a three day (six classes in total) instructional workshop at The Midwest Beauty Show, Chicago, Illinois. For two years I conducted my hand-painted nail art technique classes at The Nail Technology Institute, Patchogue, NY. For three years I taught my hand-painted nail art technique for OPI. I was commissioned to do a one-week hand-painted nail art seminar in Puerto Rico. I also teach my hand-painted nail art technique privately. My classes can be as small as one or as large as 20. A one day class is eight hours, from 9 to 6, with a one hour lunch and two 15 minute breaks."
