Our Latest News

Please note until further notice I am unable to accept new, ongoing nail clients in the studio.  My dream of owning a self-sustaining small business has come true thanks to my wonderful clients and I can't thank you enough.  Between my studio work and my education schedule I am fully booked.  If you would like to be placed on a wait-list for a new client opportunity please visit my Contact page.   

I am still accepting occasional Corrective Toenail clients.  Please email the studio for consultation.

Warm Regards,

Laura

Nail Trends

Nail shapes have evolved from the squared-off edge.  On trend and flattering to hands everywhere are the soft almond or more rounded square.   Dare to be edgy with the pointed almond, coffin or ballerina.  

The demand for Shellac will continue to increase as many clients enjoy 2 to 3 weeks’ wear with no chips, smudges or dents.   Your nails will be perfectly dry at the end of your appointment.   This year we introduce Shellac Luxe, a superior new gel polish from CND with the same great quality you've come to expect, and a 60-second removal (yes you read that right) with No Nail Damage!
