Julie Le, aka @nailartslanger is an OPI Design Team Artist and educator and owner of Fill’in My Nails nail salon in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.
I am 29 years old, and have been doing nails since I was 15. I’ve always envisioned being an educator and OPI has made all my dreams come true. My favorite kind kind of nail art is 3D and hand painted. I’m so grateful to be able to spend my life doing what I love and being able to show my kids that anything is possible with hard work and dedication.
