Britney Wears EZ Flow, ibd and Seche. Manicurist Kimmie Kyees visited Britney Spears at her Malibu home in September to give her a pair of perfect pink-and-whites using the EZ Flow High Definitino Acrylic System, some ibd tips, and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Kyees accented the smile line with pink and baby blue rhinestones. “This was the fourth time I did her nails. She never wears color so it’s always pink-and-white acrylics.” Says Kyees. “She was pretty quiet. Britney has a very sweet charm about her.”
