My Nail School is Open!

As I sat with my students in a classroom, practicing a set of OPI Absolute acrylic enhancements, it hit me that my dream has finally come true.

Long ago (about two decades ago), when my mother told me to get a nail license, I said I didn't want to do nails for the rest of my life. Now after opening my own salon and a nail school, I am dedicated to the quality service of the nail professional. I'm very thankful to have the opportunity to do what I love. 

Many times I tried to find something else to do, either because I didn't make enough money as a nail tech or I disliked the quality of the product where I worked. So my focus at the school is to provide my students with a knowledge of quality service and products and how to make a career in nails.

I am so proud of what I've accomplished so far, and it will be an even greater accomplishment to see my students finally become true professional nail artists. Artistry Academy is finally here!
