First Look Fridays Interview Series: Manicurist and Nail Artist Nikki Diamond

Sometimes the best people come into your life in the most unexpected ways. Two years ago, during a trip to Los Angeles (my final trip before I moved two months later), I happened upon Nikki Diamond, a manicurist and nail artist at The House of Polish. I was randomly assigned to her, and I knew that I wanted purple nails with some sort of nail polish bottle art. Other than that, I was totally open to the design. Nikki and I connected instantly, and the design she created was SO GOOD. I seriously couldn't stop staring at my nails! (You'll have to keep reading to see what she did. Trust me, you're going to love it.) She's since moved to Las Vegas, but we've kept in touch over Instagram, and I knew I needed to feature her on The Beauty of Life -- because she is not only an incredible nail artist, but a truly inspiring person. Read on to find out how she got her start as a manicurist, the nail polishes she can't live without and so much more.

Admittedly, I am not the most frequent user of face scrubs and exfoliators. I typically find that they dry my skin out and cause more breakouts than if I just leave it alone. But, in the case of the Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub, I find myself reaching for it again and again -- because, honestly, it's just THAT good.

Sometimes my favorite manicures are born out of what one might call a happy accident. For my trip to Palm Springs over Labor Day weekend (my first time there, and let me just tell you, I AM IN LOVE), I wanted my nails to be super bold and bright. And what better color for that than Deborah Lippmann On The Beach, #amirite? Well, once I got back, most of my nails were still intact (shoutout to Deb for her amazingly long-lasting colors), but the middle finger was looking a little worse for wear. Totally not because I was raising it a ton, I swear! But I decided to give it a little pizazz with some sparkle. Enter butter LONDON Tart With A Heart ... and, in effect, one of my fave manicures to date!
