Campaign season is in full swing!

Campaign season is in full swing. Once all of the fashion shows are finished-- NY , Milan and Paris-- the designers need to shoot their campaigns. Last week I was on the CK campaign with 2 beautiful young girls and one hot young boy (no surprise there for Calvin Klein, right?)

Most people think that my job is very glamorous-- well picture me at 6 am leaving my apartment wearing long underwear, 3 layers of sweaters a coat scarf and hat and lugging my manicure kit which weighs 50 lbs on a light day (because you just never know what you will need) and spending the day OUTSIDE on the photo shoot. That is all I can divulge for now. But look for some great clothes from CK in the fall!!

Going Hollywood!

Today I'm doing nails on a new YSL ad. The last time I worked with them resulted in this glamorous shot in front of the Hollywood sign. How I got my butt up that hill I have no idea but that's me in front of the Y.

Shaving all my love for you

Last week was nicely mixed. A day in the lab working on new colors and trends --- finishing up concepts for fall/winter 09 . Just a little hint…. Twinkle, sparkle and shine! I spent 2 days on set with Kate Winslet (did you hear that she is an Academy Award winner now?!) and the extraordinary photographer Steven Meisel. The make up and hair team were none other than Stephan Marais and Oribe. If you haven’t snapped up some of Oribe’s new hair products I recommend you run to the nearest salon and get hooked! The fragrances are to die for! I finished up the week working with up and coming model Drees Hemingway (great granddaughter of earnest and daughter of great beauty Mariel). We photographed her wearing Marquee Moon created for the fall Rodarte fashion show – sorry kids cant get it until july at Nordstrom. But it will be worth the wait! You can check me out backstage at the Zac Posen show via

New - I Want To Love You P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)

Maybe you're inspried by the soft neutrals, pinks, and flowers that just cheer for spring; or perhaps you just need an 80's flashback. Either way, my new spring shade will bring out the Pretty Young Thing in you. P.Y.T. is a lush coral creamsicle that plays somewhere between sheer and opaque depending on your application. It will capture the look that makes you dance!

Cover to Cover

Vanity Fair cover 2006, Tom Ford, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley
Vanity Fair, April 2009 issue. Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, and Paul Rudd

When I created the nail look for Tom Ford with Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley for this iconic Vanity Fair cover back in 2006, little did I know that I would be re-visiting the look three years later on the new legends of comedy--Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, and Paul Rudd. The four jokesters kept us in stitches all day. When Paul Rudd blew in Seth Rogen's ear I almost wet myself. I can tell you none of the fab four are regular manicure guys, I think this was their first, which made it all the better.
