Name: Fariha Ali
Salon: Enamel Diction, Los Angeles, CA
What inspires you and your designs?
Contemporary art and illustrators.
What's the most "out there" non-traditional material you've incorporated into a manicure?
Raw rubies and sapphires.
Describe a favorite manicure you've performed?
An industrial disco look. Metallic with studs, it looked like sheet metal essentially.
What's a favorite trick you've learned?
the Vetro technique for applying gel.
What's the most unique request you've received from a client?
Tentacle Porn, but unfortunately no client really requests it. So I would have to probably say 3-D body parts to honor a friend who was getting an operation.
