Born and raised in beautiful Haiku, Midori built her nail prowess from the ground up. As a lifelong painter it was only a matter of time before she discovered a new kind of canvas: her nails. After enough demand from people who noticed the intricate designs she did on her own nails, midori began doing freelance nail art and has been for the last three years. With an eye for style, deep care for nail health, and a hell of a lot of talent, you are in good hands with Midori!
