Beyonce’s Manicurist Now Polishing On East Seventh
All the single ladies, take note: a manicurist who did Beyoncé’s nails when she was manager at Sakura Nail and Spa has opened her own place.
Mo Qin, known to most of her customers simply as Momo, has quietly opened Oh, My Nails! at 117 East Seventh Street.
Why did the artist who has jazzed up the nails of Serena Williams, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland, and Solange set up shop a short walk from her old employer? “I like the neighborhood and the people here are more into art so they know what is real good art,” she said.
Should you want a particular work of art on your nails, you can bring in a photo or pattern and Ms. Qin will do her best to nail it. Manicures using Zoya organic polish start at $15 and gel jobs using Calgel are $40. Ms. Qin says she doesn’t use acrylics or harsh chemicals that stink up the place.
The shop is open from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and appointments are recommended.
Oh, My Nails!, 117 East Seventh Street (between First Avenue and Avenue A), (646) 590-4700
