Leah's Nails

Started 1355579673.563 in Jewelry Talk | Last reply 1355887815.263 by Kitty Galore

I wish they'd have Leah do the jewelry shows. Her nails are always perfectly manicured. Why can her nails always look so perfect, while some of the other hosts are so often in need of fill-ins, etc. Perfectly manicured nails certainly enhance the presentation of jewelry items. Hosts should take note.

I totally agree with you and wondered the same thing....Leah has beautiful perfect nails so why not give her the up-close hand shots. Some others (host's nails) are kind of a stomach turner.

I have heard Leah say that they are her natural nails!{#emotions_dlg.wub}

She has beautiful hands and nails!

This too shall pass.

Agreed. Her hands always look nice. Conversely, Antonella's nails gross me out. Total distraction with the close up shots. I can't get to the remote quick enough. :::shudder:::

She has beautiful hands, but I've seen her do jewelry shows and it's really not her thing - I like her, but it just didn't work. It takes more than nice hands to present jewelry the right way IMO. The hosts should stick to what they do the best.

In my life, I've loved them all...

I really find that hard to believe. I have always had natural long, beautiful nails ~ however, no matter how careful you are you are bound to break one now and then. Especially with as long as Leah keeps hers. Then there is the doggone split right at the nail bed that you have to grow out.

If you always tell the truth you will never have to try and remember what you said before .....

I'm with you - I have always had long hard nails but occasionally one breaks - and that's been the puzzle for me about Leah's nails. They definitely do look natural but how does she keep and maintain ten so perfect all the time? I'd like her secret.

I imagine she's just very careful. She lives like a hand model, probably.

I remember her saying that pretty hands and treating herself to manicures are her reward to herself because she used to bite her nails.

I've heard her say that, too. Oh, I'd LOVE to have natural nails like hers!!

Yes! She is beautiful! I love her. I don't understand why they don't use her more.

Leah used to present jewelry shows and always did a terrific job! Leah does know what she is doing and presents each item with complete descriptions & shows the item in all angles. Leah, also does not take the presentation of the jewelry away from the models who are there to show how the item looks. The Q needs to have Leah present more jewelry shows! As for "the hosts should stick to what they do the best", there have been many times that a host is used to present items that he or she have no business presenting, yet they do so, repeatedly. IMHO!

Leah is truly an ASSET to the Q and does no wrong IMHO!! Blessings.

Her nails are not natural, they are nicely done acrylics.

Ant's nails are natural but look like cra* most of the time. Leah has very nice FAKE nails and they are always polished to perfection, you never see her nails look like Lisa's chicklettes.

Leah does have beautiful hands/nails and maintains them, and I do believe they are fake.

Leah is never on a show with chipped, dirty under nail, or a much needed fill-in.

Joan Rivers also has a beautiful manicure when presenting {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}

Leah's nails are definitely not natural. You can see her own nail growth underneath the fakes. She may say they are her own nails because maybe her own nails are that long and have a layer of acrylic over the top.

Some hosts care more about their overall personal appearance than others. Her nails never look in need of a fill. The only other host I can think of who always has absolutely impeccable nails is Colleen on HSN. Her nails are acrylic as well but never need a fill.

You can't buy love but you can adopt it. Adopt, don't shop.

They may be wraps over her natural nails. A friend does the same and considers them natural, I guess in a way, they are. I agree, Leah has beautiful hands and nails (real or fake).

I saw Pat's this morning and they were a ragged mess. She looks like she chews her cuticles. You could see the scabs.

I think Leah does her own nails.

I agree with Queen of Posts.

Namaste

curious as to why you think Antoinella's nails don't look good? whenever I see them they look perfectly manicured. am I missing something?

I saw them just one day last week and they looked dreadful. I couldn't believe she was permitted to show jewelry. I will admit that it's a bit unusual for her nails to look so bad. But bad, they were, that day.

I caught a show last month and her nails looked really bad. All gunked up and poor polish job.

I have actually purchased 3 rings from Leah - just from looking at her hands. She also has nice ankles. They did some kind of 'frisky' music on one of the Saturday morning clothing shows 5-6 years ago, featuring her ankles.

I like Leah. She is one of the few I can sit through a show and watch.

I love Leah and think she is a fabulous host, whatever she is presenting!

Yes, her nails ( real or not) are beautiful. That said Antoinella's are plain tacky, with Lisa's

big square nails coming in right behind.
