I’ve written a lot about celebrity manicurist Tracylee Percival on this blog, but I’ve never mentioned that she helps me with things beyond nail art.


My Sainte-Chapelle-inspired nails by Tracylee. Click for original post.

A lot of people try to give me ideas about how to promote my business. Tracylee is the only one — and I mean the ONLY one — who gives me awesome suggestions that I’ve never thought of. When Tracylee says something, I do it! In addition, she’s always happy to wear my jewelry when she is working with a celebrity or important fashion stylist. (And recently she did emoji nail art with blogger Leandra Medine of Man Repeller. You know how I feel about emoji!) Quite a few interesting people have had a good laugh over my GTFOH and STFU necklaces thanks to Tracylee’s modeling efforts. So I decided Tracylee should have a necklace to keep. It would have been easy to give her the STFU necklace that she’d recently been wearing … but easy is boring! I decided to make her something special, in honor of the #nailninja hashtag she uses on Twitter. Here’s what I made.

And here’s how it looks on Tracylee.

When Tracylee posted this photo, her younger brother Brian wrote:

“That’s what happens with ninjas. You don’t see them at first and then BAM! Your nails are manicured, have fab nail art on them and then the nail ninja is gone like the wind.”

You can follow Tracylee on Twitter here and, of course, under the #nailninja hashtag. If you’re not the ninja type but still want to custom-order a silver or gold word necklace that isn’t part of my regular collection, holla at me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com. Up to six letters looks best!

      Thanks…and you got the first word (not acronym) necklace that I did. Wish I’d get some more requests for SULKY. LOL.
