In Style May Issue

Everyone needs pick up the May Issue of In Style because its the 2012 Best Beauty Buys issue!! It has everything from hair to makeup to nails….check out my mention regarding the Best Trendy Color…I picked Essie’s Power Clutch!


Doesn’t Michelle Williams look so beautiful at the premiere of her new film Take This Waltz at the Tribeca Film Festival? People Magazine thinks so too and has named her as one of their Most Beautiful People of the Year! For her Tribeca premiere, I used Tom Ford’s “Plum Noir” Nail Lacquer. The deep plum color worked perfectly with her  pretty springy dress….buy the polish here.


Nail Art

Fun nails I did on my friend Stephanie.


Olivia Palermo Shoot!

I worked on a shoot the other day with Olivia Palermo for the cover of Shop Til You Drop magazine. She is absolutely stunning and walked onto set perfect from head to toe. Olivia is one of the easiest clients I have ever worked with as she knows exactly what she likes and only wears red nail polish!!! We used Essie’s “Fishnet Stockings,” which complemented all the clothes and her skin tone. Check out some behind the scenes pics below.


ps..I have been swooning over her J. Mendel dress above for years. If anyone knows how I can get my hands on one please let me know!!



Rose Bryne Shoot!

Here are some behind the scenes pics from a recent shoot I did with the gorgeous Rose Bryne for FLARE magazine. I used Essie’s “Brooch The Subject” to give her the perfect nude shade.



I just had the pleasure of working with the amazing Julia Louis-Dreyfus while she is in NYC promoting her new show VEEP on HBO. She is just as hilarious as you would think she would be and such a pleasure to be around…and one of the easiest clients! Julia’s go too colors are Essie classics: “Mademoiselle” for when she wants to be simple and pretty for daytime interviews and “Wicked” for fun shows like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and partying the night away with Vanity Fair.



Spring is here!!!

I am so happy that Spring is finally here and we can move away from all the dark, drab winter colors. Its all about NEON this season. Here are some  colors for inspiration.


If doing straight neon nails is a bit too much for you, you can always pair a neutral with neon like I did for Stylecaster.com here.
