These days, Jin Soon is known as the manicurist who brushes up models' nails for runway shows and major fashion shoots; she also owns salons in New York and has her own line of nail polish. But when Soon was still a rising star back in 2012, Chicago's Space519 became the first American boutique to carry her line.

Yesterday, Soon stopped by the Mag Mile shop to chat nail polish and give manicures. As she brushed the nude Nostalgia onto our nails and topped it with Polka White (an adorable white polka-dot coat), she shared some tips on everything from cuticle care to face cream. Read the Q&A, below.
