Lisa began her nail career when she was 17, when tips were thick and applied using glue and powder. She has seen many fads come and go and come around again and has a strong opinion about the lack of FDA protection and false advertising allowed in the cosmetic industry. Lisa has worked in many salons as an employee and renter while using many mediums including acrylic, uv gel, gel polishes and dip systems.
When Lisa branched out on her own, creating Nail Solutions, her vision was to create a new type of nail salon. Her services take longer as they are designed therapeutically, focusing on the health of your nails and skin. Lisa's retention rate is high and she is often told by new clients that they wish they had known about her sooner.
Lisa had very specific goals in mind when she opened Nail Solutions. The first was to bridge the gap between the medical community and the cosmetic industry. This is a very difficult task considering most doctors, especially Podiatrists, have a low opinion of nail technicians and nail salons in general. Another goal was to create a platform from which she could share her industry and product knowledge with the general public, regardless of whether you become a client or not. She accomplished this with the creation of her blog. Lisa's third goal related to the heart of what Nail Solutions is about; to reaffirm that the significance of manicures and pedicures is about the health of your nails and skin and not just about pretty colors and sandal season. Color should be optional, not a necessity to camouflage damage.
Now celebrating three years in business, she has decided to commit Nail Solutions to being a truly Natural Nails Only salon, eliminating all other enhancement type products and services. Her passion for this is fueled by her concern over the constant wearing of gel enhancements (curing and removal) and a growing clientele of ladies seeking help for severely dehydrated, damaged and over-filed nails.
Lisa also offers consulting services and is a self professed science geek, spending many hours studying ingredients and product synergy related to both the nail industry and skincare. You will learn something new at each appointment
