As a New York based freelance manicurist, MiMi D is known for impeccably clean work.

Adam Selman, Cushnie Et Ochs, Rachel Zoe, Alexander Wang, Carolina Herrera, Opening Ceremony, DKNY, and Diane von Furstenberg are just a few of the top designers she has worked with. In the fall of 2015, she was able to add Lead Manicurist to her Fashion Week resume with designer Paola Hernandez.
