In an interview, the artist, who is also a teacher at a private school, narrated how he got the idea of painting on his nails and what has kept him going. “The first nail I painted was 25 years ago. My dad and brother are also artists and I was inspired by them. Everyone who sees this art gets a bit of a shock. These are my own nails and I haven’t used anyone’s else’s because growing nails this long can take a long time — usually up to a year and a half,” Narahari said in a video feature by Barcroft TV.
