Having an active social media account in this day and age is one of the fastest ways to gain immense popularity and attain success. One of the many people to have gone through this route is internet sensation Lovely Mimi who first rose to prominence on Instagram where she posts videos that garner millions of views.

Originally a nail technician, Mimi began her journey to stardom when she created her first Instagram account called mimilovelynails. Here, the salon owner frequently posted images and videos of her work to the delight of her followers. A while later, she created another account called itslovelymimi where she started uploading make-up and nail painting tutorials. Her videos on here proved to be a huge hit, especially for the fact that she added a lot of humor in her content. What followed next for her was the launching of a music career as she further made an appearance on the VH1 reality TV series, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

What Lovely Mimi Did Before Fame

The Instagram sensation we know today as Lovely Mimi was born Myha Thi Luong on August 20, 1990, in the Asian country of Vietnam. Before the colorful videos, glitz, and glam she has become known for, she was just an ordinary girl who grew up within the walls of a refugee camp in the Philippines. Her family later left the camp and made their way to the United States in 1993.

Upon her arrival in the U.S, Mimi began studies at a high school. It was the beginning of another life for the young girl who had to further experience alienation from her peers as a result of her being different. What followed next was a life of rebellion as she would run away from home for periods of time and began drinking alcohol which led to fights with her parents. She ended up dropping out of high school and entered into a life of crime which got her in trouble with the law as she had to spend some time in a juvenile detention facility.

Without formal education or training to do anything, Lovely Mimi found it difficult finding a job. She was left with no option but to employ herself, and so she began working towards owning a beauty spot. In no time, the Vietnamese immigrant became an owner of a nail salon in Maryland which she called Luong’s Lovely Nails.

How She Became Famous on Social Media

Lovely Mimi went on to be very successful as a “nail architect”, a phrase her fans like to call her. She improved year after year and became very popular in her town before attracting the attention of people all over the United States as a result of her use of social media, particularly Instagram where she posted numerous pictures and videos of her work that attracted a huge number of followers and fans.

Mimi soon began posting tutorial videos which brought her even more fame. Her make-up and nail-painting tutorial videos were laced with comedy which made it appeal to an even wider audience as her reputation as one of the best nail technicians in the U.S. became solidified.

Lovely Mimi has since then been the first name on every woman’s lips when it comes to doing nails. She has capitalized on this fame by opening various outlets in cities across the United States.

Lovely Mimi’s Foray Into Music and Television

While handling her business as a nail shop owner, Lovely Mimi worked towards launching a career as a musician. In September 2016, she featured the London-based boy band 5ive on her hip-hop song titled “We Don’t Care”. The following year, she made her first appearance on the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reality show, joining a long list of supporting cast members on the show that included Melissa Scott, Jasmine Washington, Rod Bullock, and Keanna Arnold, among many others.

What We Know About Her Marriage and Divorce

Going by what we see on social media and the role she plays on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Mimi appears to have a larger-than-life personality that is filled with colorful hair and make-up, big eyelashes, and amazing-looking nails. However, what people might not know is that she is a mother of two children; a boy and a girl named Juice and Jayy.

Lovely Mimi welcomed her two kids to the world with her husband Remy Skinner. The pair exchanged vows in 2010 after having dated for a very long time. Skinner, who is also known as Remy the Boss, has gone on to work as her manager and has appeared in some of her videos on Instagram.

Unfortunately for the pair, things went sour and they have decided to go their separate ways. The couple divorced in 2019 on grounds of infidelity on the part of Skinner. Mimi accused him of cheating on her with several women, notably former LHHATL star, Just Brittany. Mimi said she felt betrayed upon finding out that Brittany who she took as a friend was having an affair with her husband.
