Our Latest News

Covid-19 Update:  The studio is once again open effective June 23, 2020.   All Covid-19 protocols are in place to ensure our mutual health and safety.  Every client must wear a mask for their entire visit to the studio and answer health-screening questions at each appointment.  

I am unable to accept new ongoing nail clients at this time due to Covid-19.  If you would like to be placed on a wait-list for a new client opportunity please visit my Contact page to send me a message letting me know what type of service you're looking for.  I hope to be able to welcome you soon!  

I am still accepting occasional Corrective Toenail clients.  Please email the studio for consultation.

Warm Regards,

Nail Trends

Artificial Nail shapes have evolved from the squared-off edge, to the soft almond or more rounded square.   Dare to be edgy with the pointed almond, coffin or ballerina.   Nail styles range from fresh neutrals to spectacular nails embellished with genuine Swarovski crystals, and everything in between!

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 polished so that they look completely natural.  

In addition to her in-studio clients and education,  Laura has ventured into the nail competition arena.  She was a finalist in the 2010 Contessa awards, Nail Art Technician category.  She also placed 2nd in the Gel Polish Category in the first theCNTC Nail Competition in London Ontario in 2016.   She is a respected contributor to trade magazines such as Nails, Nailpro and Salon, having her nail skills and expert advice featured in editorial work.
