Naomi Gonzlez-Longstaff is a modern day renaissance woman: multi-faceted, diverse and dynamic. Celebrity nail artist is not her only esteemed title, but one of many. Naomi is a New Yorker, a Latina, an entrepreneur, a mom, a creative designer and a Zumba enthusiast. She is not defined by these titles, rather she is propelled by each of these aspects which influence her work.
As an industry leader, Naomi has worked across the US and UK, leading nail teams backstage at fashion weeks, creative directing nail art for huge campaigns and working with top brands like Zoya, Essie, The Body Shop and CND. Since kicking off her career in 2009, she has worked with the likes of Shakira for Super Bowl LIV, Serena Williams, Marchesa and Ralph Lauren. She is a celebrity manicurist signed and represented by NYC's power agent Timothy Priano.
Naomi has been the house manicurist for high-profile salons like Sally Hershberger Tim Rogers Salon and Serge Normant at John Frieda in NYC whilst balancing a demanding editorial, celebrity and fashion design week schedule. These experiences led her to launch her own polish line, NAOMI Nail Lacquer, which features a curated collection of vegan-friendly nude polishes for every skin tone. As a Puerto Rican woman working with models and talent of all races and backgrounds, on set she often struggled to find the right nude shades which inspired her to create her own line of inclusive nude polishes.
Now based in the UK, she still splits her time between NYC, Miami, London and LA.
