How to Get a Crystal Manicure Like Julia Roberts

Despite the number of sufficiently wonderful manicures I’ve received in my life as a beauty editor, none have been as magical as the one I received a few days ago. To clarify, this wasn’t just any old manicure; it was a crystal healing manicure courtesy of one of Hollywood’s most sought-after nail artists, Mazz Hanna. With amazing clients—her regulars include Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts, Selma Blair, Greta Gerwig, and Kaley Cuoco—I had expected to be impressed. I just hadn’t expected how impressed.

Not only did I walk away with a lavender-hued paint job elegantly adorned with clear quartz (to enhance clarity) and kyanite (to promote telepathy, empathy, and psychic ability), I also walked away feeling less anxious, more grounded, and all around soul-soothed. I’m not sure about you, but these are all extremely foreign feelings come 10 a.m. on a Monday.

Not only was I appreciative of the manicure, the entrancing selection of crystals set before me, and Mazz’s open and lovely demeanor, but I was equally captivated by the love and passion she puts into her work and the equally beguiling lineup of nail and skin care products she’s created as part of her brand. (Think CBD and amethyst-enhanced cuticle oils, crystal starter kits, citrine-dusted bath soaks, and more.) 

Because it’s not every day you’re gifted a visit with a celebrity nail artist and an intimate crystal healing session, I documented the experience thoroughly. Curious to know what happened, what products were used, and how, perhaps, you can create a similar experience at home while wearing sweatpants?
