Megan Rainwater, Beauty Changes Lives 2014 Tippi Hedren Nail Scholarship Winner, always knew she was an artist, though it took her some time to realize what kind of artistic path she would take. She soon became fascinated with how other nail technicians were able to create such beautiful and unique designs all on a single nail. Gathering inspiration via Instagram, Megan was able to keep on top of the newest trends in nail art and eventually decided acquiring her license as a nail technician was her vehicle towards her artistic outlet.

Congratulations to Maria, and big thanks to Beauty Changes Lives and the legacy of Tippi Hedren for continuously providing educational opportunities.
