Harold "Buddy" Sims of Omaha has bragging rights of being the best nail artist in the Midwest and arguably one of the best in the world after finishing third in an international competition on Sunday.
"I started doing nails because I like doing nails and being able to make someone feel good about themselves and that experience with the clients and as I progressed in that I just started getting more interested in the art and I thought I'd enter this competition and it has just snowballed into what it is now."
Sims finished 3rd out of 24 contestants in the Nails Magazine Next Top Nail Artist Contest held in California on Sunday.
The theme was fantasy nails.
He currently does nails at Bella Dea Day Spa in Omaha.
