A little background:
It all started about 10 years ago when I found a way to turn my longterm nail obsession into a job - Not knowing I would eventually work for leading magazines both in Holland and abroad, and be part of Fashion Week New York, Paris, London and Milan. Last year I fulfilled a dream opening LAKWERK where I, together with our mega talented and passionate nail techs, was able to put my profession on the map! 

When you curate products, what determines that it makes the Coucou Cut?
Most importantly, I instantly need to fall in love with it. This can be in various ways; what it looks like, how it feels, the quality, the result. As long as there's an X-factor that "wows" me. 

What is your ultimate beauty advice?
Make sure you take care of your nails, it gives so much more joy to life! Your nails are the one thing you constantly see and when done nicely it simply enhances your confidentiality and happiness! (
scientifically proven by the way;)).
