Earlier this spring we posed the question, "Is Boston a black hole for nail art?" Our expert panel affirmed and elaborated on why they paint their own, including Nina Park (@ninanailedit). She spoke with Boston.com about her talent with talons, revealing that her Instagram popularity extends offline and into her day job: teaching sophomore English at Bunker Hill Day School. Park rewards Honor Roll and A report cards with nail art—a rare treat, considering she rarely paints anyone's manicure but her own. Would the expectation of glittery nails help us ace Great Expectations? Very likely. Catch the rest of the interview here.
