 Nail and nail art is very popular. How do you describe your nail art and how do you stay ahead of the game?

My nail art is very versatile but if I had to give my style a name it would be Classy Urban Couture. Just like fashion nail designs go in and out of style so it’s smart to stay close to classic looks  and never abandon the basics to keep up with the ever evolving trends. 

There are tons of nail shops and nail boutiques in Chicago, why did you choose to open NBV Studio and how are you different then everyone else?

I knew going forward in my career that I wanted to offer my present and future clients more than just a service but a wonderful experience every time. I also knew the only way to make it happen I had to be in complete control of the environment to create these experiences. NBV Studio was opened Summer 2017 to offer the relaxing, customer appreciated, upscale boutique experience, and services. 

We seen your work on Instagram and Facebook, Can share why you became a nail technician and what education did you received to perfect your craft.

Being creative has always been my thing. I fell in love with Arts and Crafts at an early age. As soon as I figured out I could birth my creativity on nails I was hooked. I practiced for years until I finally decided to enroll in Dudley’s Beauty College and get licensed in 2000. Over the years and still today I take classes to stay in the know of new techniques and products to offer more options to my clients.

As a business owner, you encounter tons of people, what is the one thing that you tell your clients and why do they keep coming back to you?

Currently 25% of my clients have been coming to me for a minimum of 10 years or more. I tell them often about my goals that always include being a better Nail Technician for them and myself. They return because they know they are appreciated and it’s always shown through my services and now the awesome environment of NBV Studio. I love what I do and it shows in my work.
