‘Man-icurist’, Tom Bachik, who tends to the nails of Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and Victoria Beckham, has been named as OPI‘s global nail ambassador.
The celebrity nail artist will work with OPI’s education, product development, digital, social and influencer marketing teams to create fashion-forward nails, participate in product development and assist with education on behalf of the brand.
Tom is famed in Hollywood and across the globe for his visually inventive and high fashion nail art designs, and his work is seen at red carpet events including the Oscars, Grammy Awards and Golden Globes.
He is also a regular in leading consumer publications including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, Allure and InStyle, and has worked with the Chanel, Gucci, Versace and Armani brands.
Tom hones over 20 years’ experience in the nail industry and has won over 300 nail competitions.
“We’re incredibly excited to have Tom join the OPI team,” explains OPI co-founder and brand ambassador, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. “Tom’s work and clientele speak for themselves. He has an unbelievable roster of Tinseltown’s hottest singers and actresses – and he clearly loves colour and uses it in creative, fashionable and impactful ways that make his creations stand out.”
As a former graphic artist and skateboarder, Tom sold custom-painted helmets before attending beauty school. During this time, he discovered his talent for nails and went on to become the first nail artist to work exclusively with Chanel.
“I’m so excited to work alongside Suzi, a legend in nails and with OPI, the world leader in nail colour,” shares, Tom. “I’m incredibly passionate about nail design, product development and education and this collaboration allows me to work with some of the best formulations and tools, as well as one of the best teams in the industry, allowing my creativity and technical skills to thrive.
“Together with OPI, I will focus on building brand awareness, educating nail technicians, and inspiring the industry as a whole.”
