Like any sane woman in America, I'd love to be more like Beyoncé. What to do about it? I can't have her body, her voice, her husband, or nearly as many sequins, but I can have her nails. Yes, I spent an afternoon with her manicurist. And yes, you should be jealous.
Lisa Logan, B's unofficial nail artist, got her start by a stroke of late Nineties luck, when she became Eve's go-to manicurist just around the time the performer started topping the charts. When word got out about where Eve was getting her nails done, the crowds began flocking to Logan at the Harlem salon she worked at back then. Eventually, Logan became the East Coast go-to for diva manis: Queen Latifah, Madonna, fashion magazines, designers putting on runway shows, and Beyoncé all wanted to put their hands in Logan's.
