Melody Lasseter wields brushes and sponges like any other artist, but rather than paper or a famous chapel’s coatroom, her canvas is the human body. As the manicurist behind Gemini Nails and Makeup, she paints nails and rouges cheeks to prepare clients for casual nights out or special occasions. She finishes manicures and pedicures with enduring polish in one of 78 shellac polishes and 42 gel OPI colors, or creates custom polish blends and patterns with traditional acrylic nail paints. Her nail services employ a similar level of artistry, and she has served as the nail technician to celebrities such as Lucy Baines Johnson, The Undertaker, and Erin Wasson. Her work even took home first place in the 2010 Create Your Ultimate Face contest with a denim-textured blend of colors that elegantly engulfed a quarter of her model’s face, and she is also a CND Master Painter and Master Architect with 14 years of experience in the industry.
