OAKLAND, CATaylor Watson in an Oakland based artist and educator. After being raised in Connecticut and attending college in Ohio, Taylor kept moving westward in search of sunnier skies. The Bay Area has been her home for the past 9 years, and she'll probably be here for many more. Taylor started Party Nails in 2011 as a fun side project while she was working in the non-profit world. Party Nails started as a pop up nail shop, where Taylor would offer nail art at bars, parties, and other events. Now a certified nail tech, Taylor mostly does on set manicuring on photoshoots and does nail art at private events. Her nail art is often inspired by bright textiles and patterns, as well as other artists' work.
When she's not painting nails, Taylor can be found beertending at Shotwell's Bar, making kombucha, crafting, or hanging out with her cat. She is also is in the process of launching her own body-positive health coaching business.
