Have had these GOLD blix nail things on my left hand for about a week now and as a direct result of it, have made many new friends and acquaintances. They really are a conversation piece. Also, they are incredibly beautiful and easy to have. I gots mines dones at Νύχι・Νύχι. Tell them I sent ya.

Experimenting. And investigating the old techniques.

Some of the looks I did for a recent Votre Beauté magazine shoot, with the outworldly Quinta Witzel.



One of the hairstyles was directly inspired by one of my most favorite films as a kid, “The Moon-Spinners“, the 1964 Hayley Mills film by Disney. As a child I had marveled at Pola Negri’s hairstyle, the dubious, jewels-lusting “Madame Habib” bob with a chic bun on top and although I had recreated it on dolls countless times, I had to try it on a human.
