Washington, September 23: Michelle Obama’s fashionable DNC manicure took more than a year in the making, it has been revealed.
Celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik, who’s clients include Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Lopez, created the colour with Artistic Nail Design “a little more than a year ago,” and said that the process took a lot of trail and error.
“I was looking at what was popular and kind of where we were going in colour,” ABC News quoted him as saying at HBO’s pre-Emmys Luxury Loung.
“At the time, the gray-beiges and taupey-beiges were getting really popular but a lot of my clients and their skin tones were more cool, more lavender. So I put a little purple in with the grayish beige to create that tone. It also has a little silver in it to give it some luminosity,” he said.
Bachik didn’t know that the First Lady wore his colour Vogue until days after her Sept. 4 speech, when the Wall Street Journal revealed the name of her nail polish.
“I was working, I missed the speech, and it wasn’t until my friends told me ‘Hey, Michelle’s wearing your colour,’” he said.
“It looked gorgeous on her. She went with something more modern and on trend, and I think that’s why everyone jumped on it and thought it was a great choice,” Bachik added. (ANI)
