There are two things this New Yorker loves about her city....manicures that are fast, inexpensive and GOOD and musicals. Last week I got to combine my love of both at the Carlton Hotel to celebrate their partnership with PIPPIN the Musical.
Pippin just returned to Broadway after a 40 year hiatus. The circus-themed revival has landed the ago… and Tony Award® for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL (score by Stephen Schwartz)! You can get more details about the show here http://www.pippinthemusical.com/
As performers treated us to songs from the show, the hotel's spa gave mini manicures. Really, I can't think of a more perfect evening. As I sipped a glass of wine in the glamorous lobby, my manicurist painted on some new matte polish from Zoya called Pixie Dust. I opted for the Vespa--a mint green. The polish is speckled with sparkles and has a matt finish.

The manicure finished with amazing Fast Drops. In a matter of minutes, I was ready to go! Zoya Reyzis (the founder) is a classically trained pianist who changed careers to earn her cosmetology license. After realizing that there was a lack of top quality nail products made with natural ingredients, Reyzis decided to collaborate with her husband, an advanced chemist, to create the first long-wearing toxin-free polish. They have done some fabulous fashion collaborations. Love this brand!
