    Elsbeth Schuetz, Celebrity Nail Artist

    shares insight on her career as a nail artist to the stars!!

     

    How long have you been doing what you are doing and who are your customers?
    ES: For over 25 years, I’ve been doing nail art and manicures. I have VIP show biz clients such as Katy Perry, Hillary Swank, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Teri Hatcher and many others. Often, I have to work in set trailers so speed and precision are very important. Stars have little time so spectacular styles and designs have to be mastered quickly.

    How has fashion changed in the manicure world over time? What is relevant today?
    ES: 
    When I first started, super long nails were the thing and they were usually filed with a square tip. Playful motifs and figurative styles were “hot” and required a lot of artistic skills. I’m thinking of pin-up girls faces or flowers. For about 2-3 years, however, the trend in the U.S. has changed completely. Short nails are in, about 98% of orders that I’m doing usually go beyond just the nails straight across the fingertip. All the stars want a retro-style, like Jackie Kennedy or Grace Kelly. So rather classically inspired, even in terms of structure. One could describe it as an almond shape with softly rounded nails. Red is back, a “Bette Davis” or “Grace Kelly-Red”, in addition to gray, and black mud. Greenish gold is also currently very on-trend. Animal prints have been replaced by dots, simple graphic motifs also still have a great impact. I work a lot with very thin metallic films, which I secure on the nail with glue or nail polish. Filing, and then putting one coat over the top. The effects are spectacular and it’s quick.

    What is your view of the latest trend?
    ES: 
    Python-nails with real snake skin, that’s just the hype and the stars love it. However, it can cost you up to $300. I paint nails with white nail polish twice before I place the paper-thin Phytonskin (that I get from pythons after they shed their skin in the terrarium) onto the nails while the nails are not fully dry yet. With a slide, I press on the Phytonskin and then file away the overhanging parts. I put on a top coat and there you have it – an exclusive style. It lasts surprisingly long and suits any style of clothing.

    Do you have any tips for us. What should we consider when getting a manicure and how do we improve the shelf life of nail polish?
    ES: Soaking nails to soften cuticles is not ideal, the nail swells and if you then paint it the nail varnish fragments and cracks more quickly as the water has evaporated and the nail has shrunk. A modern manicure done almost dry and the cuticles are gently removed with cuticle removers. It is also important that the nails are oil free before you varnish them.

  • PYP Summit – Day 1

    By Saturday, April 18, 2015 0 No tags Permalink 1

    The wait is over! The 2015 PYP Freelance Business Development Summit has arrived to ‘Transform Artists into Stylepreneurs’

    The launch party for the 2015 PYP Summit kicked off with great fanfare. Speakers, panelists, sponsors and registrants alike mingled and socialized in the gorgeous lounge area of the Crowne Plaza Hotel with the ambiance of an industry social mixer. The air was buzzing with new introductions, PYP graduate reconnects and excitement.

    I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderfully pleasant hair stylist from Maryland who was very excited to attend the PYP Summit for the first time. She shared that her career was beginning to move in a new direction and she was excited to learn what the summit has to offer in the areas of creative growth. I assured her that she was at the right place.

    Crystal Wright, founder of the PYP Summit, made a wonderful welcome announcement to all in attendance and shared her deep gratitude for all registrants participation, as well as each of the event’s sponsors for showing their faith in her vision to create this industry’s first summit developed to creating stylepreneurs and helping them become successful.

    With a round of applause, these creative talents spent the remainder of the evening socializing, sharing info and taking pictures in front of the step-and-repeat, as they were eager and excited to take the first step toward their journey to success in the morning.

    The Boutique Issue – April 2015

     

    Letter to the Editor:

    My job as an editor opens the opportunity for me to visit interesting cities and I always take the opportunity to check out the local independent retail scene. I enjoy taking in a meal at a local mom-and-pop restaurant and observing how regulars are greeted by the staff by name and a smile. I also like walking to local boutiques near my hotel to get a feel for the fashion sense in that city.

    I almost always not only find a great buy but also make great connections with the boutique owner and their staff. I am greeted and assisted without any of them knowing that I own a magazine. I am usually provided such great personalized service, it is usually at that time that I disclose who I am and would love to learn more about the boutique so that I can introduce its wares to our readers.

    The smile that graces their face feels great to see and is familiar to me. As an independent publisher, I know how appreciative I feel when someone enjoys Linger Magazine enough to spend their money to support it. That is my goal with each issue. As this is our very first Boutique Issue, we aim to highlight more physical and online boutiques across the globe that cater to each of you. We encourage you to inform us of some of your favorite boutiques. Together, let’s ‪#‎supportindependentretailers‬ and spend our money to strengthen the local economy of entrepreneurs.
