Essie GEL Training in New York

You heard right! Essie is coming out with a gel (aka No Chip). Releasing in salons in October, the 36 shade line has keratin technology infused with Vitamin B5 and E to condition your nails and keep them happy and hydrated. Why the long wait for Essie Gel when all competitors were releasing gel products? Weingarden did not want to release a gel manicure…

Help Polished Girlz!

Last month I went to the Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati to work with Polished Girlz to bring some nail joy into the lives of the girls staying at RMH. I met Alanna, the creator of Polished Girlz, and had a blast teaching her and her volunteers how to do snowflake nails. Polished Girlz is an organization of girls teaming up to bring children…

BRASS Going Hard

BRASS, the director and creator of Nailgasm Doc is always repping for AstroWifey. I adore her, her passion in her profession, and for demanding some respect for us nail artists out there with her film. Her doc showcases what is it is to be a nail artist, what it means to us, and why we do it.

Dark Knight Rises

Had the pleasure of doing Cathryn’s nails, who is a MAC Cosmetic instructor here in Chicago. She brought in some really awesome MAC lacquers, and wanted to do a Batman Dark Knight Rises themed manicure to tribute the release of the movie. On the ring fingers I used “Midnight Tryst” which is a dark gunmetal color which was perfect to duplicate the look of…

New Shellac Shades & Options

Coming home to random packages in my hallway is always a super pleasant surprise. Opening it up and seeing that CND hooked it up early with Additives is an even nicer surprise! Guess what that means?! Tons of colors and creations are just waiting to be whipped up with this kit. Additives can be used with acrylic, gel, and Shellac; but I’m sure my…

Zoya Remove +

One of my clients just told me she loves my polish remover because it doesn’t burn her skin. She has a nervous habit of picking her skin around her nails, and usually in the past she says certain polish removers severly burn her skin and make her uncomfortable. When I heard this and recently had a friend ask which nail polish remover I recommend,…

Go Hard!

Isis rocking the AstroWifey Go Hard In The Nail Paint tee oh so well! I know I keep teasing, but believe me I am being picky on my second color-way for the tees, so that it’s just right! I would rather drop both at one time. Give me a few weeks, and you can snatch one up in my shop! Til then, let’s gawk…
