Atlanta-themed nail art

Medusa held an interactive nail event with local influencers and beauty professionals in Atlanta on August 11. The goal of the event was to immerse salon owners, beauty professionals, and beauty enthusiasts in Medusa's brand. Activations included a look at the brand's new line, a nail bar where guests could play with Medusa gels, a blending demo to learn about blending gel colors, watching NTNA S.6 competitor Melisa Salazar work on nail art, take photos, and a chance to meet founder Eric Berry.

Medusa was founded by Berry in order to honor the women in his life who enjoyed going to the salon. The brand offers gel colors, gel foundation, nail art ink, and tools designed to save time in the salon and therefore allow professionals to take on more clients, and make more money.
