A Nail Date with Déng

When it comes to describing Déng, multi-faceted is an understatement. 

This self-described nomad spends most of his time playing soccer, and when he's not doing that you're sure to find him amongst fellow creatives.

Déng and I met years ago by way of Shamaal. In fact, he came recommended on Moonman's Nail Date, so our manicure was long overdue.

This nail date was spur of the moment since he came for a normal Sunday family dinner. I was completely caught off guard when he asked me to do his nails, but that surprise quickly shifted to excitement since he gave me creative freedom on four of his nails.

This was not Déng's first manicure, and I'm more than sure it won't be his last.

 Déng is a firm believer of expressing your true self without judgment. Through this belief he allows whoever he's in the room with to let their work speak for itself to reveal their most authentic, genuine self.
