What are the most essential nail tools that every woman should have?

The essential nail tool needed is a good cuticle pusher switch. Tweezerman is my favorite; you can push the cuticle and skin back to let the nail grow straight forward for a perfect manicured look. EVERY woman should own this tool. It makes the manicure last and is my secret weapon!

Any other tips for making a manicure long lasting?

To make that mani last, swipe the nail bed with alcohol before you apply a base coat because it dries the nail out and gets rid of any lotions or oil applied during your service.

When painting your nails at home, it could definitely be a task, so you want to make sure you have a great lighted area to place your hand flat so you can start applying the perfect color.

When it comes to this season, what are you seeing in terms of trends and colors?

I am loving for spring/summer Gabriel Cosmetics Ephemeral Beauty collection in Moonstone. It is light, fun and I see sparkle and shine as a HUGE trend for the warm weather.
