Born in Kyrgyzstan to Russian parents, Nikita was studying art in school at age 15 when she decided she wanted to try something else, eventually becoming involved in modeling and win Miss Kyrgyzstan pageant. In 1993, she left Russia and traveled around Europe. From there she began to get work in European porn videos, and after establishing herself in that field, traveled to the U.S. and got into the adult-film business there. In 1997, Nikita won the X-Rated Critics Organization Award for Best New Starlet and became a VCA contract star. In July 1998, she was Penthouse Pet of the Month. Nikita often has performed with her friend Vicca, also a Russian award-winning porn star.
