Change your nails, change your attitude. With well-groomed nails, your gestures become livelier and more important, and your look definitely sexier. And suddenly, it's not just your hands feeling that way, but your whole self. Now you don't have to go to a salon to enjoy a spa-worthy manicure or pedicure. Ji Baek, the stylish, high-energy queen of nail care - the go-to expert for fashion designers, actors, fashionistas, and media ranging from "Vogue" to "The New York Times", and owner of New York's hottest nail salons, the Rescue Beauty Lounges - presents the definitive guide to beautiful hands and feet, emphasizing natural beauty, cleanliness, and simplicity. In her witty, approachable voice, Ji explains why it's important to take your vitamins daily, file weekly, and moisturize constantly. Her illustrated step-by-step directions demystify professional nail care and make it easy to replicate the results at home using the right tools, products, and techniques. From nail length and shape to the right polish colour for every occasion, no topic is left unexplored.
Even the most irksome of problems get foolproof solutions: how to avoid split nails, fill ridges, fade sunspots, and soften calluses. She even has her own twelve-step program for the very worst of the nail care offenders: NBA (nail-biters anonymous), a no-fail, guaranteed system to get anyone's nails - no matter how ragged - into tip-top shape.
Ji Baek founded Rescue Beauty Lounge, New York's top nail salon, in 1998, and soon after started garnering attention in Vogue, InStyle, Allure, New York, Lucky, Jane, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times, WWD, and more.
