Kym Lee, a Look Back in Pictures

Kym Lee, who passed away this week, was a mega-star on the competition circuit in the 1980s and 1990s. She mentored many big names before they were big names, including Tom Holcomb, Trang Nguyen, and Tom Bachik. She was passionate about nails, about perfecting a sculpting technique, and about creating a product line that was "designed by a nail technician." What you'll probably enjoy about these photos is just how many looks Kym had over the years. We once commented that her hair color changes seemed to align with specific periods in her business. With a personality and image so out of this world, the only name for her company could have been Galaxy Nail Products.
