Making Magic with @Hannys_Manis

Posted by Kara Crail


Sparkly unicorn poops. Yes, you heard that right. Our collaboration stamping plate with @Hannys_Manis is the plate you didn’t realize you were missing. But who is the artist behind the sparkles, the cat buttholes, and the unicorn poop?

For the longest time, Hannah has been somewhat of a mystery to us. Her collection of 60-second stamping tutorials are mesmerizing and nothing short of flawless OCD satisfaction. Luckily, we were given a chance to connect with this magical unicorn of a nail artist and learn more in this fun little interview.

Maniology: How and when did you start creating nail art?

Hannys_Manis: I started when I was in high school. I’ve always loved to draw, and in high school I discovered YouTube videos of nail art. I’ve been hooked ever since!

Maniology: Is this your first collaborative nail stamping plate?  What was the inspiration behind your plate?

Hannys_Manis: This is my first collaboration plate! I was really inspired by designs that I love to do and keep going back to.

Maniology: In your opinion, what makes your collaboration plate different?

Hannys_Manis: I think what makes my plate different is the variety in designs and styles. The designs people can create can go from whimsical to sophisticated with just one tool!

Maniology: Do you have any other creative hobbies outside of nail art?

Hannys_Manis: I do like to draw, but nail art is definitely my creative hobby.

Maniology: What is a nail art design that you keep going back to?

Hannys_Manis: Any sort of stone texture nail art or galaxy nails are my favorite! I’m always trying out different techniques and styles. I also love that it doesn’t have to be perfect. The messier it looks, the better!
