About MeFrom Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle, to celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kate Beckinsale and Eva Longoria, LA-based manicurist Michelle Saunders is highly sought-after by high-fashion magazines and A-list entertainers.
Michelle began her training in her hometown of San Francisco, working as a manicurist at various Chanel Boutiques in the Bay area. That’s where she developed a gentle yet thorough approach to manicuring, refining her technique and ultimately ended up opening her own, successful, appointment-only nail salon.
After 10 years of manicuring in San Francisco, Michelle headed to Los Angeles and that’s when her career took off. She joined a top fashion and beauty agency and began booking jobs in the entertainment industry. Michelle quickly found herself busier than ever, working on-set with hand models starring in national advertising campaigns, giving manicures to supermodels featured in editorial spreads and making house-calls to Hollywood celebrities. Her work can currently be seen in magazines, billboards, television commercials, movies and on the red carpet.
The hallmark of Michelle’s manicures and pedicures is their durability. Michelle believes that a long-lasting result is achieved through precise preparation of the nail bed, thorough technique and use of the highest quality products.
