"By the grace of God, this year I beat cancer. So I reinvented myself and my craft. I'm now doing press-on nails. This means that I sit at my desk for hours making your nails for you and shipping them out, only for you to install them and get the look in 10 minutes," Stha shared in her post.

She said people have been warming up to the idea, and she has been getting a lot of orders.

"This is your sign that don't ever let life get you down. No matter how hard it gets, make sure you get back on your feet. Noma impilo iba nzima, wena iba nzima kakhulu (Even when life gets hard, you must get harder)," the inspiring virtual nail artist shared.
