Mazz Hanna was an advertising exec moving from New York to L.A. when she realized it was time to pursue her real passions — crystals and nail art — and, well, the next thing she knew she was dreaming up good-vibe manicures for Julia Roberts, Greta Gerwig and Nicole Richie to name a few. Since quitting her corporate job in September 2017, she’s perfected her signature Crystal Healing Manicure, launched a product line and created countless red carpet nail looks — most notably the navy crystal-adorned design Roberts rocked at the Ben Is Back premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival in September.
As you might recall, Roberts brilliantly shutdown a social media troll who took issue with her midnight blue mani at TIFF. “Joan Crawford looks way better in my opinion more classic and refined and Julia is wearing ugly black nail polish,” the woman commented on Instagram. “It is in fact a navy polish with garnets crystals as a grounding accent,” the Oscar winner quipped in response. “In case you would like to edit your comment from ‘ugly black nail polish’ to ugly navy polish with garnet crystals. Just sayin.”
Hanna tells Us that she never expected the mani to gain that kind of attention, but she has been quietly adding stones to her VIP clients’ digits based on their mood and energy since the beginning. While she can shorten the process as needed, her standard Crystal Healing Manicure starts with a chakra analysis prior to the appointment so Hanna can “figure out what you would benefit from energetically” and create some essential oil elixirs accordingly. Once she arrives at a client’s home, she burns sage to clear the space, sets up a crystal grid and then gets to work on the gel mani. The whole process takes 90 minutes to two hours and is meant to be an exercise in self care.
As a certified crystal healer and aromatherapist, Hanna regularly whips up oils and mists for her clients, and she just launched a curated collection of her favorites on her website. Each of the five SKUs is infused with crystals and blessed by a shaman before being shipped out, so you can get a taste of her good vibes — and seriously effective tinctures — on the go.
