What was the original passion so the original passion was genuinely just doing my neal's? I did my dissertation petition that I am. I always have to be doing something with my hands. Otherwise I just feel depressed. If I'm not like making something so I studied bitcoin design and technology at Uni always saw in making things and when it came to my last year I was just doing my dissertation so as rating and Danilo reports and I just didn't feel like I had to create a vote by dead love pain and my Neal's Anim- swin tumbler is really taken off and I was seeing you know these amazing nail designs and I thought I saw reprint Neal's and I thought I mean I've obsessed with lay prince so I thought I could easily with island l. sold it and it'd be it will at least from there and it was just a really nice when when I was sitting right my dissertation my laptop it was really nice to be looking at some brightly colored fun looking nails and like something that I could be off as well so it totally spiraled from there and I started taking pictures of my nails didn't tutorials putting them on Tumbler anim- I mean when I look back on them. They're not not so gorgeous time. People are really into and start beating the news too and so from the START I painting my friends nails statements elva vintage fears Tonle Tampons to kneel are and then from there yeah I just kind of well I got kind of bored and other people's not board if he and other people's nails I I was trying to think like Kokin I do more people's nails with sitting in front of them all the time and like physically having to be the because it was quite tired and I was entering into the team and working taken as a visual merchandiser so it's quite difficult to and so I started in making Neil decals which early tattoo transfers for your nails Amazon started no actually started paying enforce Neal's I._B._M.. Falls Neal's sold them on as so it was like the designs I was doing on other people but I could say to people and London and Manchester and then I started making Neil decals and then the neal decals where they can a business to call from so I actually go and chased from top shop stock in the Neil decals so that was like an appointment. I had to decide to just keep this as his are like or dislike anti-business so sexy on for that and I'm glad I made enter business. What was the was the salon the thing you thought where I'm going to do this and I want us out on Yep so Iran ah so the neal decals? I ran the business for two years cold D._I._Y..
