This company offers manicures, pedicures, makeup application, and waxing services to all who request them. What sets this mobile beauty service apart from the others is that they are approved to come into hospitals in the Tri-state area. Founder Kate Arian launched the company after she was hospitalized, and couldn’t get a manicurist to come into the hospital room. “I hope the company spreads beauty and hope,” Arian tells us. Her team of professionals is highly skilled, sanitized, and approved to service in hospitals in all boroughs of New York City, Long Island, Northern and Central New Jersey, Connecticut, and Philadelphia (with ample notice).
Among their technicians is Barbara Mutnick whose client list includes Barbara Walters (for the past 26 years), and Ana Wintour. “I make people feel clean, happy, and well-taken care of,” she says about her visits to the hospital.
