We stopped by the launch of the Mindy Kaling's customized manicure (called the "Mindy-cure") at Bliss Spa in New York City to find out more about her impressive style streak.

You're so busy, How do you pamper yourself?
Pampering for me is sleeping, I have the sleep patterns of a 12-year-old boy, so I could sleep until 2 in the afternoon. In terms of massage and stuff, massages make me a little uneasy. My mind wanders.

How does your personal style compare to your character's?
My character is not afraid of color, and she's not afraid of print, and she's frequently not afraid to wear them at the same time. I'm less complicated than Mindy Lahiri, but I love her love of color.

What's one of your wardrobe essentials?
When I'm in New York City, I need a cool pair of sneakers because I like to wander around shopping and looking for adventure. I invested in some Maison Martin Margiela sneakers, in addition to black high tops from Giuseppe Zanotti. And of course, my white hight-top Converse.
