10645277_555141957951726_4781840793267764778_nWhether you’re looking for a simple manicure or extreme nail art, Beyonce’s manicurist, Momo Qin has got you covered! Momo has set up her own shop, Oh, My Nails! in the East Village. As soon as you step into Oh, My Nails! you feel like you’re sitting around with your old girlfriends, doing your nails and gossiping and anything and everything!

From studs and diamonds to miniature hand drawn paintings, there is no design that Momo and her team of manicurists can’t master. They only use Calgel for gel manicures, which never damages the nail since it’s non-toxic and unlike other nail gels, it allows natural nails to breath. For gel mani’s I only use Calgel because it’s gentle and never damages my nails during removal. Or you can get a regular manicure with their gorgeous selection of Chanel and Christian Louboutin nail polishes. Whatever nail polish or design you choose, you’ll definitely have a laugh and leave with gorgeous nails, just like Beyonce!

@OhMyNailsNYC, 117 East Seventh Street (between First Avenue and Avenue A), (646) 590-4700

You can see the manicure Momo gave me here for my beauty segment on ABC in Portland.

Stay Warm, Look Sleek

It’s officially November – time to bid adieu to warm weather days and start dressing for the chilly New York City winter. And you know what that means: it’s time to shop. I sat down with Nilou Ghodsi, style maven and owner of high-end women’s boutique Heist in Venice, California (don’t worry New Yorkers, her entire boutique can also be shopped online at ShopHeist.com) to learn a thing or two about layering clothes when the temp drops.

Nilou_fall

Jeanette Zinno: How can we stay stylish this winter without looking too bundled up?

Nilou Ghodsi (pictured above): Layering is essential to transitioning into winter as the temperature can vary quite a bit, from morning to mid-day to nighttime.

JZ: What are your go-to tips for mastering the art of layering?

NG: I always love to incorporate a jacket or coat with a pop of color, which allows me to keep the rest of my attire simple and versatile (ie: black, white, denim) without being boring. This is especially important while traveling, since I can’t have access to my entire closet and need to have a few “uniforms” that will sustain me for the duration of my trip.

JZ: What are some of your favorite pieces from your boutique for layering?

NG: Perfect examples are the Harris Wharf London coats, and their $500-$600 price point makes them even more accessible.

Thanks, Nilou! Now, here are some of my favorite styles for the season. X Jeanette | @jeanettezinno
