on her nails: janna
Meet Janna! She’s a yoga teacher and a writer, and if that wasn’t enough, she happens to have great nails, too. Janna is working to get her memoir published, so I thought this was the perfect time to introduce you all to this lovely gal…
Where are we? Court Street in Brooklyn, right outside neighborhood bookstore BookCourt.
Salon or do-it-yourself mani? DIY, all the way.
Why did you choose these colors? I kept seeing all of these neon bright nails that I loved, but I’d done that before so I wanted a little twist.
Why do you wear nail polish? It’s one of the things I love about being a girl – you can wear nail polish! My grandmother wore red. My mother wears a lot of earth tones and beiges. And I fall anywhere on the spectrum. It’s just…fun.
If you could only wear one polish for the rest of your life, what would it be? Red. I always go for red first. As long as they have OPI The Thrill of Brazil, it will be that particular red.
And now a question just for you. Tell me about your book! Yes, I wrote a book. He Never Liked Cake is a memoir, the story of growing up with my father’s traumatic brain injury. It’s a necessary resource for the TBI community (the first of its kind from this perspective) and for book club lovers and lit folk alike, it’s a compelling narrative about what happens when life doesn’t work out the way we had it planned.
