Dakota Johnson’s Manicurist Spills a Halloween Nail Art Hack

We are all about that hair — and makeup too! Here at Stylish, we’ve never seen a hairstyle or makeup trend we couldn’t talk about for days on end, so we started a podcast to dish on all the latest beauty news — from hits and misses on the red carpet to celebrity hair and makeup gurus’ dos and don’ts. Each week, Us Weekly executive editor of beauty and style Gwen Flamberg talks with some of the best in the biz about what’s new in hair, makeup and style in our Get Tressed With Us podcast. Listen above!

This week, Gwen and senior reporter Travis Cronin welcome manicurist to the stars Deborah Lippmann, who just happens to tend to the nails of Hollywood’s A-list, including Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Garner, Lupita Nyong’o, Renee Zellweger and Mariah Carey, just to name a few. Deb dishes her tips for everything from perfecting a DIY mani (and pedi!) to the hottest nail shades of the season and even an easy nail art hack for Halloween!
