PG tips.

In this instance we ain't talking tea. I'm talking Pretty Good (finger) tips. Check em...

Courtesy of the awesome Marian Newman:

"Credited as a ‘super-manicurist’ in the 21st Century Beauty Bible by Jo Fairley and Sarah Stacey and being described by Tatler as: “Marian Newman is to nails what Karl Lagerfeld is to frocks.” The Times online: “Forensic scientist turned nail guru to Kate Moss and Keira Knightly, Marian Newman is to pedicures what Heston Blumenthal is to fish and chips”.

Her session work is a major part of Marian’s life, having become the name that famous photographer Nick Knight calls upon to do his Dior, Lancome and Vogue shoots. Working closely with Sam McKnight, Val Garland and many others, Marian now commands an unrivalled position in her industry and is one of the few top nail practitioners whose work is seen in glossy magazines around the world virtually every week. She has worked with most of the legendary photographers, including Mario Testino, David Bailey and Patrick Demarchelier.

Some career highlights in this field are over 50 British Vogue covers to her name (plus many 100’s covers and editorial stories) and 10 years of working on every advertising campaign for Christian Dior. More recently, she created the nails on all the ‘Interlude’ films for Lady Gaga’s Monster Tour."

TIGHT. And a lovely lady to boot.

My Minx design is a prototype so no other person on the PLANET has it. Eat that.
