ROZ King is Toowoomba's nail art queen.

After only two years of painting, she is now creating mini works of art for her loyal customers.

Her work, which can be seen on her Facebook page, Bling Nails by Roz, is endless.

Rather than the standard one- colour nails, Mrs King creates one-of-a-kind designs ranging from ladybug-inspired nails to leopard prints, stripes and mini Converse sneakers.

"I've always been a bit creative," she said.

"I spend a lot of time researching and looking for ideas but they seem to come quickly."

Mrs King said the designs were endless and could include glued-on diamantes, flowers and bows as well as foils and glitter.

The painting process ranges from 30 minutes to 10 hours.

For the more intricate pieces of art, Mrs King said she worked on the acrylic nails prior to the customer coming in.

"Most of my customers come in and say 'just do what you like', which is great for me," she said.

"But if others have something specific they want, they just let me know and I design it before they get here."

The set of nails Mrs King is most proud of were inspired by Alice in Wonderland and took 10 hours to complete.

"I like to try different things and I think my art is a bit different from everything else that's out there," Mrs King said.

"I'd eventually really love to teach because I just love it so much."
