Get To Know Celebrity Manicurist Bethany Newell
When you do a shoot, how is it determined what color the model will wear on her nails?
I pay attention to the wardrobe and the feeling of the story being shot, in addition to the skin tone of the talent. I also collaborate with the team as to what we want the end delivery to be.
What’s you favorite color to wear on your own nails?
I keep my manicure clean with no polish. I like to consider it my "beach manicure" - clean and lightly buffed. My toes are usually either "beach pedicure" or dark as in Vendetta by Chanel, Russian Navy by OPI or Licorice by Essie. The nudes and really dark shades are my personal signatures.
What tips do you have for techs looking to get into doing nails for editorial and advertisements?
Be professional, have a great attitude, be real and work efficiently!

I love my work and am looking forward to an amazing 2014 with some fun career surprises!
