One of the top "Man"-icurists in the world; Tom Bachik, is also one of the nation's most sought-after nail professionals among the fashion industry and celebrity elite. Coined "The Rad Manicurist," there is an insatiable demand for his amazing ability to create nails that are original and stunning time and time again. Victoria Beckham, Jessica Simpson, Scarlett Johannson, Hilary Swank, Eva Longoria, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, and Jennifer Lopez are some of the few A-list celebrities who call on Tom to polish their hands and toes.
Elite publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, W, InStyle, and Harper's Bazaar, along with design houses Gucci, Versace, Chanel and Hermes are some of the high-profile clients who call on Bachik when they really need to nail it. Why? Because Bachik's designs are unparalleled works of art. You might say, if his industry had rock stars, Bachik would be it.
A native of Southern California with a graphic artist background, Bachik is all about designing the most visually fashion-forward looks - whether it's the most elegant, timeless and classic natural nail manicure, sculpting a set of python print nails, carving intricate shapes on a nail tip, or styling something unexpectedly bold and cutting edge. It's no surprise he's the Go-To-Must-Have Guy at Hollywood's most fashion-forward celebrations and events including the Oscars, Emmy's, Grammy's, and Golden Globes.
Bachik's love of sports has made him a tough competitor - and winner of the most prestigious industry titles: including WINBA World Championship, NAILS Magazine's #1 ranked competitor, and over 300 other competition titles. He is even ahead of the curve when it comes to product innovation and developments. In fact, he has personally overseen the introduction of nearly a dozen revolutionary nail products, now used worldwide. Bachik is one of the most trusted names in the nail industry, which is why it's no surprise that he is L'Oreal Paris' newest Global Spokesperson, as their Celebrity manicurist.
Married, with three beautiful children, Bachik is truly a 'one-of-a-kind' designer. With a creative consistency, innovative spirit, and charming personality, he has become a well-respected, internationally recognized leader in the field, who's a sweet guy to boot!
Tom is represented globally by CloutierRemix.

Tell us a bit about yourself. What should people know?I live, breathe, and play in the beauty world. Throughout my 15 years in the beauty industry, I have always worked in the retail environment. Retail keeps me grounded and up-to-date with what everyday women want and love. My makeup artistry experience ranges from runway, print, fashion, TV, video, teens, kids, men and bridal.
I love my position as Lead Makeup Artist and Beauty Expert for Sdm Beauty Boutique in Brampton Mall, where I teach master classes and Makeup School. Working away at independent freelance projects, attending beauty events in Toronto, and maintaining my blogs keeps me busy, but I would not change a thing. I love what I do. Also, I am part of Lancôme Canada’s Pro Team, so be on the look out for me at Lancôme events through out the GTA.
How did you get interested in the world of beauty?The moment I knew I wanted to be in the world of beauty was the moment I knew I was going to be a mom. I knew I wanted to be a stay-home mom so I decided to take Makeup 101 at Humber College’s continuing education program. I ended up falling in love with makeup and also realized I was a natural at makeup artistry. I completed my Makeup Artistry certificate program and was a mom and freelance bridal makeup artist for about five years.
What’s your beauty must-have?My beauty must have is skincare. I am a believer of protecting your skin, keeping your skin hydrated, and using the right products for your skin type and conditions.
What beauty/style trends are you excited for this year?The trends I’m excited for in 2013 are bold lips and healthy looking skin, bold brows, natural glowing skin, and the various cat-eye liners.
What’s your favourite spa or service?My favourite service at a spa has to be a full day spa day. Does that count as one? I love the pampering of a whole day with massage, facial, mani and pedi.
What’s the one – yes, just one – product you can’t live without?My makeup kit. That’s just one right? I can’t pick just one! Ok, let’s see… My moisturizer, or maybe mascara? No wait, maybe my fave red USA lipstick from Vasanti Cosmetics.
If you were a nail polish, your colour name would be _________.REDe Ande.
Favourite beauty/style ad campaign of the past decade.Dove Campaign for Real Beauty and Dove Self-Esteem.
Let’s get social for a mo’. How can people stay up-to-date of your primping and pampering?Beauty Blog | PRO site | Twitter | Instagram | Facebook

"Spellbinding Volume. Supernatural Length.
Magically transform lashes to lush, long and lustrous. A potion with strengthening proteins drenches lashes for volume. Triple-groove wand combs through for clump-free length."

Take a look at the picture below and all I can say is wow! This mascara lives up to all the claims. My lashes looked so full, Long, plush and in just one coat. No clumping or fallout. My lashes after I removed the mascara felt so soft.
If you look closely at the brush, you will see a row of bristles missing, this side of the brush is meant for the perfect pocket of formula to apply at the base of your lashes. Wiggling the brush at the base of your lashes will deposit the formula and create major fullness. Comb the the brush thru your lashes and watch how your lashes become full, long and oh so feathery lush.
Lash potion is magical!

I love the names of these lipsticks! I have to get the red just because it's named "Marlyn".
The beautiful fuchsia "Liz" and the iconic "Brigitte" is a perfect nude.
"The lipstick with the power of a skincare An unparalleled comfort, a sensation almost imperceptible, a lipstick that glides on the lips and leaves them incredibly soft and luminous. In addition, a shiny film reflects the light to perfection for a sensational mirror effect. This colour, slightly translucent, is infused with the powerful antioxidant properties of the Exclusive Concentrated Labrador Tea Extract, an exclusive ingredient to Lise Watier Cosmétiques."
