FROM CHILD MODEL TO OUR NUMBER ONE INTERNET HOT GIRL, WE CHAT WITH MODEL AND CONTENT CREATOR, PATTY MAYO.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into modelling?
My mom had me modelling as a child so I ended up continuing with it when I got older. I would say much of my modelling success came from the beginning of Tumblr, especially when it was at its peak moment, back in 2009.
Best and worst bits?
The best part about my job is that I am able to be myself and every day and still be able to reach out to and inspire people. The worst part would be having your life shown to the world. People tend to create their own assumptions of who you are without truly knowing the real you.
Describe your style. Do you have a muse?
I don’t have one specific muse for my style. I’ve always considered myself to have a pretty diverse sense of style. I like to dress according to the mood I’m in. Even looking back, I’ve always been that way and I don’t think I’ll ever change. I do, however, adore Tony Medina and the looks he creates on his muses. As well as Nadia Lee Cohen; her creativity has no limits, oh and anything Anime!
When did you first try press-on nails?
I remember I was around 8 or 9. After my mom would leave the nail salon, so I wouldn’t feel left out, she would buy me cute little press ons from the store. I was obsessed, though by the end of the day they all had fallen off from playing outside.
What you love about wearing press ons?
Press on nails are so quick and easy to apply and wear. Actually I also hate sitting for hours waiting to get my nails done. So press ons for me beat the time and still give me the cuteness I desire.
Do you have any nail trends that you love/hate?
I’m happy to see the airbrushed styles coming back. Growing up as a 90s baby, these were always my dream look to get. Hate? Two words...Duck Nails.
Which nail shape is your all-time fav?
I’m a coffin or a claw girl! Whoever created these, THANK YOU. And I always opt for extra length.
