The Perfect Red
Out of all the hundreds of red shades on the market, this is the one Mazz uses on her celeb clients the most. “The name says it all,” Mazz says of the luxuriously packaged 10-free hue. “This is the perfect timeless red that looks amazing on everyone, no matter nail length, age or skin tone.”
Kiss Me, I’m Kind
Mazz swears by this “perfect nude for lighter skin tones.” (She used it on Minnie Driver for the Emmy’s pre-party this year.) The formula is clean and natural and contains a built-in treatment featuring argan oil, vitamin B5, and vitamin C, so it works especially well for those whose nails tend to peel and split.
For deeper skin tones, this long-lasting polish is Mazz’s holy grail nude. “Its creamy finish and incredible brush make application a breeze, even for the at-home manicurist,” she says.
One of Mazz’s most frequently requested metallics is this versatile pick from Chanel. “It is a cross between gold and silver, so it is great for those who like to mix up their jewelry,” she explains.
A more casual shade (better suited for brunch than the Oscars red carpet), this denim-esque blue is what Mazz calls “the perfect color for someone who typically wears nudes, but wants to venture out.”
Here we have a non-boring neutral that somehow flatters every skin tone. “Not quite grey, not quite mauve, but the perfect neutral that goes with everything,” says Mazz, who adds that this shade is ideal for those whose nails chip easily since it is not as noticeable.
Lincoln Park After Dark
Mazz’s single most requested dark shade for fall is this midnight purple. “It is dark and moody without being black, and can easily be dressed up or down,” says Mazz. “Looks especially chic on super short nails.”
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel
Sally Hansen’s affordable Miracle Gel polishes are a best-kept secret. “I especially love this one because it is super easy to apply, lasts for up to 10 days, and dries super fast! Perfect for those who are pressed for time,” says Mazz. This navy color, in particular, is always requested by celebs.
A nourishing base coat so unmatched, clients have come to ask for it. “It is packed with antioxidants and kale extract to strengthen weak and brittle nails,” says Mazz.
Gel Effect Instant Topcoat
And last, we have Mazz’s “ride or die topcoat.” The product has a blindingly shiny finish and dries painted nails completely in less than 10 minutes. “Need I say more?” says Mazz, who swears this topcoat is the only one she ever uses.
