After leaving college in 2018, La Tijera struggled with depression before discovering how self-care and beautiful nails could improve her outlook. “Along my journey, I’ve faced many obstacles, but I fell in love with doing nails along the way,” she says. Instagram influencer @Flynih inspires her designs as the looks are not only beautiful but artistically challenging. La Tijera names her best-self  lacquer color “Be My Zen” and describes it as a rich purple symbolizing passion, power, ambition, creativity, magic and so much more.”
