I made my official live television debut (other than the time I appeared in the audience of The Man Show repeatedly, or the time I flitted across the background of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City during a fight scene between Jill and Bethany…yep, that happened) last week on NBC News 4 New York. As beauty director for Nail It! magazine, I was invited to chat about the Spring 2014 nail art trends I sussed out from New York Fashion Week. The six days leading up to the segment, I’m not going to lie: I was nervous. Like, beyond nervous. I’m a planner by nature, and not knowing exactly what was going to go down (because I really had no clue) gave me stomach pains.

And then there was the live element. Mess up, and it’s FOR-EV-ER. I really didn’t want to mess up.

But then, the day of, I tried to let it all melt away. I know my stuff; I could recite nail art trends to you in my sleep. I could break down every show I attended backstage (more than 35), and tell you the hair, makeup and nail looks for each. So I was prepared…as prepared as I could be, anyway.

(Fun fact: These are the shows you see on the collage in the background, clockwise from top left—Betsey Johnson, ICB by Prabal Gurung, Opening Ceremony, Ruffian, Kate Spade, The Blonds, Desigual, Kye, Libertine and The Blonds again!)

And though I don’t the video refuses to embed in this post, I do have the link to the segment, which live-streamed on nbcnewyork.com. Check it out! I think you’ll see that the nerves left the building as soon as the camera started rolling!

Which nail art trend are you most excited for: lines, tip twist or glitz? Sound off in the comments!
