ManiMe: How did you get started in the nail industry? 

Natalie: I loved painting nails and creating designs for a number of years as a hobby. In 2012, I moved to NYC and started assisting manicurists onset and during NYFW. With a lot of hard work, I was fortunate enough to have built a career out of it.

ManiMe: How did you develop your nail art style?

Natalie: My style has been ever-changing, growing, and evolving over the years. I think it's a good thing to continually be open to new inspiration while holding onto your own fundamental aesthetic. Mix the old with the new, the classics with what’s current and trending. 

ManiMe: What are your favorite colors, textures, or techniques to use in your nail art?

Natalie: I love a classic red or french tip, but I also love to mix it up with fluorescents and satin shimmers. I love to switch it up, matte or shine, extensions or natural nails. I like to play around and have fun with nail looks and nail art. When it comes to technique though, I always like to make sure any look is clean and precise. 

ManiMe: Where do you typically find inspiration? 

Natalie: I take inspiration from all over. I have an app on my phone where I write things down as the ideas and inspirations come to me. Books, movies, TV, walking around NYC, and people watching. This city is overflowing with inspiration 

ManiMe: What is your favorite at-home manicure, pedicure, or nail care tip? 

Natalie: Always have a good quality file handy, both at home and on the go. Also, keep a pumice stone in the shower for your heels, especially during spring/summer when you may wear sandals and open-toed shoes

ManiMe: What’s your favorite ManiMe Essential product to use? 

Natalie: The Max Top Coat No 2. A good topcoat is a must-have for me as I love the shine it gives. 

ManiMe: What was the inspiration behind your Summer Picnic gel designs?

Natalie: Exactly that! I love picnic blankets. 

ManiMe: Describe your ideal picnic - where are you, what are you eating, and who are you with? 

Natalie: In Central Park with a sandwich and my loved ones. 

ManiMe: What are you looking forward to this summer? 

Natalie: Time outdoors and in nature. 

ManiMe: How do you keep your manis and pedis looking fresh during the summer? 

Natalie: Regular maintenance and upkeep.
