Backstage with Sally Hansen at Tracy Reese and All Lacquered Up

As you know the Muse doesn’t cover much in the way of nails over here but she was quite excited to see her good mate Michelle from All Lacquered Up featured in the Backstage with Sally Hansen video. The video features nail trends during Fashion Week 2009 and has a great recap of the show with interviews from Tracy Reese, Gabrielle Union, Michelle from All Lacquered Up. Michelle is looking lovely and all in the know with the trends she spotted this season, you’d think by now the Muse would have picked up a thing or two about good nails from her….oye, I need to work on these poor nails.

You can read more about the backstage show and the trendy nails at the show by visiting www.alllacqueredup.com
