My name is Nicole, but my family calls me "Nika"

which is my nickname in Russian - my parent's first language. Before I became an esthetician I attended art school in San Francisco for illustration and fine art painting. Now, I also consider the business of esthetics to be my art. 

I am an experienced makeup artist and licensed esthetician located in Palm Springs, CA and am passionate about organic skincare and makeup.

I had an exciting career as a celebrity esthetician in Los Angeles and operated my own studio for a number of years.  In 2013 I left it all to live a more relaxed lifestyle with my husband in Palm Springs and have never been happier!

I have apprenticed with some of the top artists in skincare, lash extensions, waxing and makeup. I always continue to study my craft and stay up to date on current research and trends in skincare and beauty. 

I provide makeup services for commercial, editorial and wedding clients across the Coachella Valley and also offer an array of esthetic services including organic facials and waxing from my private and peaceful studio in Palm Springs. For skincare i use an advanced organic and botanical derived line called Roccoco Cosmetics from Australia.  Also for makeup and basic skincare needs i use Glo Minerals and Glo Therapeutics.  

I also work as an educator and train other estheticians and medi spa professionals in peels and skincare for a wonderful group of dermatologists from the University of Miami, who developed the Miami Peel and Miami Peel S-30 which you can find on my menu as well.
