We recently sat down with Faith Roxas, the Lacquer Cabinet’s first-ever Mixologist to find out her favorite nail products, tips and predictions for the future. Here’s what she had to say!

Must have nail product?  

My must have nail products are a glass file, cuticle remover, nipper & pusher, 4-way buffer and a base coat. I believe that a perfect manicure starts with the basics. Filing your nails is the easiest way to get the shape you want. And nobody wants an ugly-looking cuticles right? These products will give your nails a softer appearance. Also make sure to buff and polish your nails for a shiny finish. I never forget to use a base coat before applying a lacquer. It provides a smooth surface for your nail color and prevents your nails from staining.

Favorite Nailtini lacquer besides your collection?

My favorite Nailtini Lacquers are Bloody Mary, Sidecar and Frappe! I think every girl needs to have a classic red, nude and a dark color. If you can’t pick a color of the day, you can never go wrong with these shades. They are my go-to nail polishes!

Quickest and easiest nail art tip? 

I would say French tip, glitter top coats and dots. If you want something classy, there are a lot of easy ways to do a French Manicure like putting scotch tape on the bottom half of your nails and then painting the part above the tape with white polish. Anything simple could be glamorous with a glitter top coat. If you want to go for a cute nail art, use a bobby pin to create dots in different sizes and colors.

Favorite and least favorite nail trends or innovations of 2013 (I.E. at-home gel 

manicure, nail wraps, ‘caviar manicure’, oval shaped nail, etc.)

Favorites:

Different top coats/finishes/textures like matte, velvet, pixie dust, etc. 

Ombre Nail Arts, Metallics, two-tones French Manicure

Least Favorites:

3D Nail Art, Crackles, Duck Feet Nails, Stiletto Nails

What trend/innovation do you think will be hot/would you like to see in 2014?

I would really love to see more pastel/soft colors for spring, 

Bright/neon colors for summer, glitters, metallics and holographic nail polishes.

 

For a chance to win the February Lacquer Cabinet Collection featuring the shades shown above, show us your best Valentine’s Day or love-inspired nail art along with the hashtags, #MyNailtini and #LoveRoxie. Faith will choose and announce a winner at the beginning of next month. Good luck!

Nailtini Was Pretty in Pink at New York Fashion Week

We are still jumping for joy at the opportunity we had to participate in fashion designer Naomi Spindel’s Ready-To-Wear Spring 2014 show at New York Fashion Week.

Truly talented,  fashion up-and-comer Naomi Spindel honed her flare for fashion while working for designers such as Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta and Proenza Schouler to name a few. For her premiere show at Fashion Week she debuted a fun, and glamorous 10-look collection featuring  hot shorts, wrap tops and slipdresses in rich fabrics and stunning feminine shades.  

Going with the glam feel of the show, renowned Manicurist Omary Gonell used Nailtini in Blushing Lady and Grenadine to create some equally as stunning nail looks which paired perfectly with the designer’s vision. 

The final look was jaw-droppingly gorgeous! ImageImage

Nail the caviar mani with tips from ‘Tini Beauty Bar Master/Founder, Michelle Toma Olson:

  • Have the beads ready for application with jar open.
  • Place your hand on top of a clean paper plate.
  • After applying a base coat and/or your chosen polish, liberally douse your nails with the micro beads. Sprinkle the beads over your nail(s) until they are completely covered.
  • Use the residual beads that fall off the nails for your second hand, or pour the rest back into the jar.
  • Carefully press down on each nail to ensure the caviar beads stick to the nail polish. Make sure you use a clean dry finger pad when pushing beads into the nail polish.
  • When nails are completely dry, add one coat of top coat nail to seal your nails.
