Celebrity manicurist Gerry Holford gets to have some seriously cool adventures, working on major brands and tending to the talons of the rich and famous. She’s giving us a behind the scenes look at her life, and some of the secrets from on set.
In November of last year, just as the air was getting a chill in New York City, I was flown out to sunny Santa Barbara, CA to The Bacara Resort and Spa to shoot the Michael Kors Spring 2014 Catalogue.
The Bacara is a world-renowned spa destination, and Santa Barbara is like heaven on earth! I arrived, unpacked, got a few hours sleep, and before I knew it I was on location at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club painting nails for some of Kors’ most popular faces. For the next week I worked with Karmen Pedaru and Oksana G, as well as some pretty hot male models!
Nails were kept at a sporty length and in classic colors. I used Hint and Desire from the new Michael Kors nail lacquer collection ($18 – stocked exclusively at Macy’s). I am so pleased to share my work for Michael Kors here at pedicure.com and I hope you continue to check in for updates on my Behind the Scenes column and for my pro picks and tips!
