A Woman Who “Nails It” Every Time!

NY Fashion Week just wrapped up and it’s been another great one!  This season, in addition to attending several top shows (from alice + olivia to Naeem Khan), I had the privilege of meeting one of the key forces “behind the scenes” at many of the shows: celebrity manicurist extraordinaire Pattie Yankee.

The name Pattie Yankee may sound very familiar to those of you who (like me) read the editorial credits of the top fashion magazine covers to find out who are the best at beauty.  Her handiwork has graced the pages of dozens of beauty/fashion magazines, including the March 2017 issue of Allure magazine featuring GIRLS star Allison Williams (a long-time client).  Her client roster includes Katy Perry, Pink, Rachael Ray, Debra Messing, Hayden Panettiere, Kourtney & Kim Kardashian and many other celebs.

Next time you’re in New York City, consider treating yourself to some of Pattie’s amazing nail art or other VIP nail services.  I am happy to arrange to have Pattie Yankee come to you as your own personal celebrity manicurist. Pattie created her own line of nail lacquers a few years ago and some of them are quite spectacular — especially the “Living Waters” silver holograph shade, a shimmery scarlet shade called “Ransom,” a heavenly nude shade called (appropriately enough) “Halo,” and a perfect classic, sheer pink shade called “Grace.”

“I wanted these fragrances to enhance an aspect of [a woman’s] personality, or perhaps reveal something about her that no one knew before,” says Christian Louboutin. Perfect for gifting, this newly released collection features all three of the designer’s signature Eau de Parfums – each is housed in a sleek glass bottle that’s colored to evoke its scent.

BULGARI

FullSizeRender (44)

Drawing on Bulgari’s Roman roots, each piece from the Bulgari Bulgari collection is defined by a logo-inscribed clasp that’s reminiscent of ancient coins. This exceptional new piece continues to incarnate the unabashed boldess of Italian design with its dégradé lizard-leather finish – creating an ethereal quality that’s at once modern and timeless.
