9:00 a.m.

Wake Up!

I wake up and start my day with a relaxing morning at the house. My first job is to do Britney Spears’ nails for her new video, but I don’t have to be on the set until 11:00 a.m. I never eat breakfast on the morning of a video shoot because there’s always catering on the set.

11:00 a.m.

Get in the Car

I receive a call that the video is pushed back until 11:30 a.m., so I don’t have to jump in my car until 11:00. I keep all of my nail equipment, polishes, Minx, rhinestones, etc., in my car at all times because I never know when I’ll have to go somewhere at the last minute. I could be out at dinner and someone will call me to do their nails at 10:00 p.m. that night—when I won’t have time to go home—so it’s always best to be prepared. You never know what the day will bring!
