I finally got to see celebrity manicurist Tracylee Percival yesterday. It was our first appointment since August. Between her fashion week and celebrity jobs, Tracylee was a hard woman to find.  I think she was sorry so much time had passed when she saw my several ripped cuticles and one weirdly dented thumbnail. (About the nail, I said, “I don’t know how that happened, so don’t ask,” and she didn’t.) She patched everything up and applied Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips in Halloween-themed “Spun for You.” I hate real-life spiders, but spiderweb nails are fine with me.

The dented thumbnail is on the other hand. Seriously, I don’t know what happened to it.

Here’s another shot of the nails — plus a sneak peek at the mid-finger ring designs I’ve done for my WENDYB by Wendy Brandes diffusion line.

The big gold ring with big diamonds is my Gravity ring, available at Broken English. Click to purchase.

From the left, there’s a B ring in 14K gold; a dollar sign for you “Get money, bitch” peeps in gold-plated sterling silver; and an asterisk ring in sterling silver. I made these because I constantly fiddle with my Memento Mori skull pinky ring, taking it off my pinky and putting it mid-finger elsewhere. But it never feels secure enough, so I made the new styles in size 4 with an open shank (band), to allow the wearer to pinch the ring tighter or open it a little wider to get a good fit.

The rings won’t be on my website till the end of next week at the earliest, but you can holla at me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com if you want to talk about reserving one.  You can also custom order a ring in any letter or symbol. Stay tuned for more additions to the diffusion line!

    God grief! It’s about time you got your nails done! You don’t paint your own when you can’t find your celbrity manicurist?

    Those wee rings are adorable.

    Oh, man, I love the mid-finger rings! I bet they would fit my pinky (I have really thin fingers). I’ll be dropping you an email for an S!

    Love the manicure!

  6. If I can find that Sally Hansen stuff, me and my stubbly little fingers are so there. But I’m mad at them because they are too little for size 4 mid finger rings. When I adopted The Teen, we got matching pinky rings, only mine fell off somewhere and was lost.

    I always have a weird dent in my thumbs, and no idea why. Can Tracylee solve nail mysteries?
