Chrysta, a college student studying psychology, may not work as a nail tech, but she’s incredibly talented. The 23-year-old content creator, who has over a million followers on TikTok, has a viral series where she uses anything — and I mean ANYTHING — to do a manicure and see if it actually works.
BuzzFeed spoke to Chrysta, who revealed that the series started after she began doing her nails to cut the cost of going to the salon every two weeks: "I started posting on TikTok as a digital journal for myself to show my progress. As I started gaining followers, I noticed that most people wanted to know how to do their nails with what they already had around their house," she said. "I started looking up different ways to do so, and that led to my 'doing my nails with random things' segment on TikTok."
"So far, I've done my nails with a toothbrush, drinking straws, toilet paper, corn starch, baby powder, leaves, Scotch tape, Oreos — and the list goes on."
