Intern Receives A Model Mani, Backstage Vivienne Tam

I was really excited for my intern, Ashley, when I found out she got an extra unheard of perk backstage at Vivienne Tam this week.

Ashley reports:

New York Fashion Week is like Christmas to me and this season I got an extra present. I was covering backstage when all the models had to go to rehearsal when the lead manicurist Katherine Kim of Incoco asked me if I would like my nails done the way they were doing them for show. I answered “Yes” in half a second and was so excited. This never happens at NYFW!

First, she cut my nails straight across to make them square and filed. Then, she prepped them by buffing each for about 10 seconds to make sure their surfaces were smooth. Kim was using stick on nail color from Incoco Dry Applique in Ruby Slippers, which she applied just to the tips of my nails. Once applied, she filed the remaining stickers off.   I couldn’t believe how great my nails looked and how fast and easy it was for her to do!
