Q:

WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER ABOUT HOW WE MET?

A:

Hmmm, this is when I wish I had a better memory. I worked with one of your sisters first, many years ago, so I am going to guess that we most likely met on a shoot with your sisters. I remember being very excited when you first called me directly to come do your nails at your home.

Q:

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF ME?

A:

You have always been one of my favorites because there is always laughing, great conversation and fun involved. I remember doing nails at your home in the Valley and you would be right down on the floor with me, sorting through colors. And occasionally we did nails in the movie theater!

Nails for Adele, Jessie J, and Rihanna

Q:

What nail look do you want me to try next?

A:

Maybe a color underneath the nail. We have never done that before!

Q:

WHAT’S THE FUNNIEST MEMORY YOU HAVE OF US?

A:

Ahhh, there are so many! Maybe Rihanna’s birthday party in the Hills many years ago. You were so silly—you’d had a few and were so funny!

Another funny but sweet memory was the time you so graciously agreed to meet my friend’s little girl Faith, who was battling cancer at the time. Out of nowhere, you told her you had a gift for her and you gave her a purse. It was crazy because on the way to the house, Faith had said, “I am gonna ask her for a purse because I am sure she has a bunch of them!” I am still eternally grateful for the kindness you showed her and her family!!!

Q:

IS THERE ANY NAIL LOOK THAT MAKES YOU CRINGE, LOOKING BACK (YOURS OR MINE)?

A:

Oh dear LORD, I used to have the longest, ugliest nails! I loved nail art so I was always trying something crazy, haha—but that’s what is so great about nails. You can really get away with so much because it’s temporary!

Q:

WHAT’S THE BEST MANI WE’VE EVER DONE?

A:

I am super fond of the gold glittery nails we just did on you, they are FAB. A bit outside of your norm, being that it’s glitter and all, but that’s the fun of nails!

Q:

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT?

A:

The relationships in my life with my clients, friends, family, my man and even my amazing pup Lola. I am so blessed to have so much love in life. They all bring me so much happiness. I am also so grateful that I get to share some of my work life with my friends and family, thanks to the generosity of the amazing and talented people I get to work with. I think my nieces and nephews are starting to think that going backstage at concerts and meeting celebrities is normal! 🙂

Q:

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF PROFESSIONAL ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?

A:

To make sure my presentation/setup was well thought-out because it would be the first impression my clients would have of me. And to make sure I was always prepared and ready for anything. When I arrive, all I need is an electrical outlet and a sink—I literally bring everything else with me.

Kimmie’s nails made me feel fierce!

Q:

What was my most diva moment?

A:

Most diva moment … hmm. I would never refer to you as a diva. HONEST AS HELL, for sure, but I never feel like you are one to act crazy for no reason. One of the more recent memories was a photo shoot where the people from the magazine had decided you were going to have a whole new look without telling you—which included cutting your nails off! I got such a good laugh that day. But I still think you were super cool about it, and in the end the shot was gorgeous—long nails and all!!!

Q:

WHAT EMOJI WOULD YOU BE?

A:

🏃 or 😴 … I think those are my two most common speeds!

Q:

WHAT’S YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL?

A:

Not gonna lie, I had to Google this one and I took an online quiz. After very important questions like “choose a state,” “choose a color” and a few others, I was told that I am the coyote. It said, “Coyote is the trickster of Native American legends. Highly adaptable, they can live in any environment and have already survived near-extinction. Like the coyote, your perseverance is legendary—you know how to make the best of life and can always find ways to amuse yourself.” I hope I did that right. Coyote seems cool!!!

Q:

WHAT POLISH COLORS SHOULD EVERY WOMAN HAVE ON HAND?

A:

Nude like Spin The Bottle by Essie, and a great red like Chinatown from NARS.
