When you've been in any job long enough, the work can get kind of monotonous — even if it's being a successful celebrity/fashion photographer. Take, for example, John Russo, whose work has appeared on the cover of Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, and Glamour, to name a few. Turns out, no matter how fabulous your job, work is work. So, what does one do when the 9-to-5 grows stale? Get a hobby, of course.

Russo's pastime of choice? Creating an ultra-gorgeous nail-polish line. Sure, some of us might just quietly sign up for a pottery class, but, hey — everyone's different. Make no mistake, this isn't amateur hour. Russo's polish line is so gorgeous, it's already been worn by A-listers like Zoe Saldana and Gwyneth Paltrow. Not bad for a debut collection.
The lacquers are currently available in major luxury spas and hotels, as if anyone needed another reason to yearn for a stay at the Four Seasons. It also looks like Russo is gearing up to launch a super pretty lipstick, so stay tuned on that front.
Meanwhile, check out Russo's site to see the entire lacquer collection in all of its vibrant majesty.
