Nails that leave a lasting impression...

Laura has been in the business of nails since 2003, always learning about nail techniques and new products.  In addition to her salon business, she has represented CND as an Education Ambassador from 2013 - 2021 and is a regular guest artist in Esthetic programs at Humber, George Brown and Loyalist Colleges.  In 2015 she won the Top Choice Award for Best Nail Salon in Durham Region.  Laura was also a finalist in the 2009 Contessa Awards and placed 2nd in the CNTC Gel Polish category in 2016.  

In the studio you will find a philosophy that begins with caring for your natural nails.  Whether it's a service with CND Shellac Gel Polish over natural nails, or a nail enhancement to provide length and strength, the goal  has remained the same since 2008.  Products are carefully chosen to ensure client health, safety and satisfaction.  

Her niche service creates nail enhancements that look and feel natural for nails that just do not grow on their own without a protective coating.  Nail art that can be simple and understated, or incredibly detailed, but always unique.  Her trained eye can recommend the perfect colour every time.  

Laura is also a specialist in cosmetic toenail enhancements, which are created with a special light-cured gel product meant for toenails (the same product used in podiatry but applied by Laura with attention to detail and esthetics).  These toenails are long-lasting and can be shaped and polished so that they look completely natural.  

She is a respected contributor to trade magazines such as Nails, Nailpro and Salon, having her nail skills and expert advice featured in editorial articles.   Laura continues to embrace new technology, trends and services, and feels the future is looking very bright for the nail care industry.
