Last year, I wrote an article about how more and more licensed nail techs are launching their own consumer product lines
— a business-savvy move in light of the booming category.
I’m thrilled to hear that one entrepreneur I interviewed for the article, celebrity tech Patricia Yankee, recently applied her very own nail polish — dubbed Patricia Couture Nail Lacquer and available at Ricky’s
— onto singer-songwriter Katy Perry’s adventurous digits, not just once but on two separate occasions.
For the launch of Perry’s new perfume (shown at top), Yankee says, “I used by Patricia Nail Lacquer in Ransom with Nail Veils
accents and genuine ruby embellishments. I worked closely with Su Laing from Nail Veils to get the exact look to match Katy's perfume bottle.”
For the Met-Ball, Yankee used Patricia Couture Nail Lacquer in Diadem, plus CND Additives
, layers of foil, and antique rubies.
Congratulations, Pattie, on making your product launch dreams come true!
