Clients of Illusions Nail Salon in Johnson City, Tenn., get an eyeful when they walk into the salon. Owners Thomasina Alexander and Wendy Allen have decorated the space with a Nail Art Wall of Fame, a framed, regularly updated assortment of 12 of their artistic creations. “The wall speaks for itself,” Allen notes. “It gives an impression when you walk through the door.”

Alexander adds, “We started the wall in March of 2008, because we’d forget some of the designs we’d come up with. Taking pictures has been a great way for us to remember our best work.” Clients love the wall too and regularly check in to see if their nails are on display.
