Elle Gerstein is a professional freelance nail artist.
Elle has elevated the definition of a contemporary manicurist through her artistry of nails.
For Elle, nail styling means creating the ultimate glamour. From cutting-edge nail shaping, to her understanding of color, texture and trend, Elle is truly one of the industry’s top stylists.
As a child, Elle’s passion for nails began at an early age. At 14, she asked her father, a chemist who manufactures nail supplies, if she could experiment with the products. Soon after, Elle began working on her first clients at her mother’s kitchen table, for family and friends. Before long she was catapulted into the industry when she opened her own business at the tender age of 17, with over 80 clients per week.
Elle’s years of experience gained her a following with celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Blake Lively and Hilary Swank.
Her work has been featured in top publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, W, Allure and Vanity Fair.
Elle has also worked with the industry’s most venerated photographers such as Steven Meisel, Patrick Demarchelier, Raymond Meier and David LaChapelle.
