Celebrity nail artist Sarah Chue gives us inside scoop on what we will see on the red carpet for Emmy's 2016 and what we should anticipate for this fall.
1. You’re the manicurist to the stars. What nail looks should we be anticipating on the red carpet for Emmys 2016?
A. If I could take an educated guess, I am thinking it would be something more on the Fall, "clean" side. I'd expect nudes, reds, dark reds, and possibly geometric nail art or striped patterns for more of the edgy look.
2. How did you begin as a manicurist?
A. I began as a Manicurist in my Senior year in High school, taking up Nail school simultaneously towards getting my license for it. Then after, I started working in at a Nail shop to a Spa Nail setting in total of about 9 years before moving to LA where I began to freelance my work.
3. Who was your first celebrity client?
A. My first celebrity client was Debby Ryan, an Actress who starred on the Disney Channel and is also a talented singer.
5. Will we see gels or regular nail polish on the red carpet?
A. I think we will see both regular polish and gels. Gels are so in right now!
6. What is your favorite nail shape?
A. My favorite nail shape are oval nails. No matter how your fingers look, an oval shape will always elongate it! Not to mention, it's super classic looking to me.
7. Do you have any nail tricks or secrets you can share?
If you just polished your nails and knick it on accident while they are still drying, you could actually fix it pretty easily without having to take off the whole polish off the nail so as long as the mistake is huge. Lightly dab your finger with acetone (polish remover), then gently dab it maybe a few times over your smudge to smooth out its wrinkles. Polish it over with your color and there you have it! Don't forget to top coat it again.
8. What do you see as the up and coming nail trend for fall?
A. I see gray, dark greens, and nudes as the upcoming fall trend. But I would definitely love to see chocolate browns in there! As far as designs go, I see symmetric lines and geometric shapes as the on-coming trend. Be on the lookout!
