Nails of New York: Dr. Lara Devgan

How did you choose your nail look and mani color?

I love understated classic style, so to me, a French manicure is perfect.

 In one word, how does your mani make you feel?


Any funny, nostalgic nail moments? What's your earliest nail memory?

Surgeons have very functional hands, so my nails are always short, clean, and pretty utilitarian. Still, I've loved painting my nails since I was little. When I was four, I used red nail polish to paint my name on my mother's antique mahogany side table, so I had to take a small break from home manicures after that. But I'm back now!

What inspired you to create these gummies? 

I wanted to create the ultimate nutraceutical vitamins to intelligently and effectively support beauty from the inside out. Healthy hair, skin, and nails rely not just on topical care, but also on micronutrient support at the cellular level. Here we are using science to augment beauty. 

What's your holy grail beauty product?

My Serum Superheroes-- I am completely obsessed with our Hyaluronic Serum, Vitamin CBE Ferulic Serum, and Retinol Bakuchiol Serum. They are gentle yet effective and *truly* skin changing. 

What are your favorite spots on the UES?

Nello-- the penne arrabbiata is delicious 

The Met-- I've been here over 100 times and I discover something new each time

Central Park-- my husband proposed to me at the boat pond and we take our kids there often 

The Mark-- the shrimp salad is my go-to order 

The Neue Gallerie-- pay homage to Klimt and get a frozen chocolate from the cafe 

Moda Operandi for a chic fashion edit 

The Dr. Devgan Scientific Beauty headquarters-- it's skincare and science heaven, and we have an amazing team that is truly committed to changing how people think about beauty and wellness
