Hello and thank you for stopping by!
I have had a passion for nails since my days in high school. I would save my allowance every month, in order to get my nails done at a local salon. I never predicted it being a career, which I am so grateful for.
I began my nail education in 2006, after transitioning from the medical field that I called “home”. I attended Shear Pleasures Manicuring Academy in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I began to learn of the issues plaguing the nail industry of unsafe services, I knew then I had found my true calling. The medical expertise that I had gained would take me and my clients to place that I couldn’t think of. I also found that the nail was a perfect canvas for me to showcase art, which I never knew I could do. Surprise, Surprise! I graduated Shear Pleasures in April 2007, ready to take on the world.
I have been in the nail industry over 10 years, how time flies?! I have witnessed new inventions, such as gel polish and IBX, a state of the art nail strengthener. I have been featured in NAILS Magazine in May 2014 for my Smooth as a Duck’s Butt Pedicure, a honor I am extremely proud of. I was also named one the Best Nail Technicians in Fayetteville, NC by The Greatest Around Fayetteville in 2013 and have became a Certified IBX Professional at the Premiere Orlando International Beauty Event in June 2015.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not learning something new, touched by a client’s story or regret this fantastic occupation that I have chosen.
