Nina Taylor – Hand Supermodel!

Nina Taylor's Work in The London Paper, for Nails at Work I was surprised to open up The London Paper yesterday and see some images that I styled a few months ago. Nina Taylor, the hand supermodel was just lovely and she’s well known for being Kate Moss’ hand & foot double in the Rimmel ads. Teresa of course, is brilliant and has painted everyone’s nails including Victoria Beckham’s. I’ve always been quite self-conscious about my hands (especially in the presence of a hand supermodel!) as they get so dry from touching fabrics and lugging bags all over the place. I really felt like keeping them hidden during this shoot but Teresa let me know that they weren’t so bad – she has a way of making you feel good about yourself and your hands and of course I got to from her expert advice! This is an image of Teresa working on Nina’s hands at the shoot! img616.jpg Nina Taylor has an intriguing site coming soon, called Famous Hands. Up Date: See Nina on I’m Kylie’s Body Double.

    Hi Sanjit – I would guess the best thing to do is contact the agency I mentioned before direct through their website.

    Good luck :)

    Jordanne – regular professional manicures is always a good start. Also always keep a mini manicure kit with you; a file (in case of emergencies), a good skin condtioning oil (such as SolarOil by CND) to keep the cuticles supple and help prevent those annoying hangnails, it also keeps the nails flexible and helps prevent the nails from becoming brittle. Lastly a good hand cream. Daily use of hand cream can delay the ageing process by up to ten years! Use especially after washing your hands throughout the day as soap & water strips aways the skins natural oils.

    I live in the South West (Dorset) and have been in contact with Hired Hands. They suggested (after seeing photos of my hands) that I contact agencies in the South. However, I’ve yet to find any who do not charge to go on their books. Can anyone reccommend an agency for hand modelling in the South of England?
    Thank you. I look forward to hearing some suggestions.

    The only agencies that really do hand modelling are Hired Hands, MOT models, Dereks Hands and Elliot brown.

    Try putting the name of each agency on and find out the address to contact them.
