A Q&A With Gabrielle Union
Q: Can you tell us about your partnership with SensatioNail and why you are excited to work with the brand?
A: I’m a beauty gal and manicures are something I rarely go without. I’ve always loved gel polish and try to align myself (as a brand ambassador) with brands that I’m an organic, personal fan of, so partnering with SensatioNail was a no-brainer. SensatioNail is the real deal – there are 60 beautiful polishes and innovative technology to ensure the best, long-lasting manicure ever – and I’m so excited to share all that’s to come!
Q: How did you first learn about SensatioNail?
A: This is actually a funny story… When my husband proposed I was (of course) in-between manicures and my nails looked a bit crazy. It was the most exciting day of my life and I had to share the news, with or without a proper manicure. When my manicurist saw the pictures, she sent me a card with the SensatioNail starter kit saying, “No more excuses.”
Q: What are your favorite SensatioNail shades and why do you love gel polish?
A: I was immediately drawn to Midnight Rendezvous – it’s a shiny black polish that instantly makes me feel edgy and cool. Typically, when I’m on-set and in character, I’m in nude polish, so off-set I go for the opposite. In this industry I’m always traveling and constantly busy – having a manicure that’s shiny and chip-free for 2 weeks (seriously) is essential.
Q: Why do you love SensatioNail?
A: SensatioNail is the real-deal. It delivers a shiny, chip-free manicure that lasts for two weeks – I’ve tried other gels and none of them last as long or look as good as SensatioNail. Plus, it is so easy to do – the process is fool-proof so I am guaranteed a perfect manicure every time.
Q: Do you have a go-to manicure/pedicure shade for red carpet events, premieres, etc. and how do you choose the perfect color?
A: My off-duty go-to color is SensatioNail Midnight Rendezvous. It’s an edgy, shiny black that makes you feel a bit like a rock star. On-set I usually have to keep my nails a neutral nude color and for Red Carpet events I like to mix it up depending on my mood and outfit. Sometimes I’ll go with a sultry red or sometimes a delicate pink – I love to try new shades when I can.
Q: What is the best at-home beauty tip you’ve ever received and who is it from?
A: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I drink a gallon of water a day and truly believe it’s the best thing for your hair, skin and nails. I’m such a big believer in getting hydration any way you can, I’ve been known to secretly drink out of the hose in the backyard before! But, in public I stick to ice water – out of a glass – with lemon. The lemon makes me feel fancier!
Q: What are your tips to achieving the perfect at-home manicure?
A: Never half-ass your manicure! It sounds so simple, but when you take your time it just looks so much better than it does if you rush through it. I love to pour a glass of wine and settle into Thursday night TV (Shondaland) while I do my nails. It’s three hours so I don’t need to rush my manicure and it really makes a difference.
Q: Who is your beauty/style inspiration?
A: It changes weekly! This week it’s Rihanna because she’s back on Instagram and looking fierce. She’s so cool and edgy.
