Things going on this week!

We are super excited about this week!! So much is going on! First I want to say congrats to one of my besties, Antoinette for being featured in The Pocketbook Monologues. I know she is going to do a wonderful job! Ebony of Polish U Pretty (Memphis, TN) will be at Shine this week to help us out! ANNNNNND! Thursday we will be doing MINX for Marc Jacobs at Nordstrom!!

I'am my sister's keeper

I love my little sister! Not only do I have the pleasure of working with her everyday, but she caters to my every need! She is the "shine" in my life! If you have never had the pleasure of meeting "BINK" while visiting "SHINE", you must make an appointment with her! Her personality is the life of the salon and she is the best pedicurist ever! Family is such a blessing! I thank the Lord everyday for having her in my life!

IamPR

Many people have helped me along the way. My friends, family and husband have all been wonderfully encouraging! I love them!
More recently, I've teamed up with an awesome chic who has inspired me to move forward in my career and is helping to establish SHINE as a long running success story. Ms. Lorri Stacker is the founder of her own PR company called IamPR. She's an outstanding woman with phenomenal drive and I really appreciate her. She's full of wonderful ideals and knows how to throw a party honey!

We love you D!!

We are really on a mission to do something different here! I'am so excited about the things that God is doing in my life and for my business. DeAngelo is off to college, he said he's going to do nails at school but I think he will be more interested in playing basketball. I remember when he first came to Shine, and how shy he was. He's definately matured from being around all of his "aunties" at the salon. We love him so much and are going to miss him at the salon. I'm not sure if he's the first in his family to go to college but I do know that whatever he puts his mind to he will be a success.

Nails and Community

I have a real passion for community.  My business is strategically placed in the heart of the neighborhood because I felt there was a need for a nice,  clean and respectful salon in OUR own neighborhood. Everyday I look at young ladies and men walk by who I know could benefit from proper training  and job placement.   AA make up more 100% of customers  in Asian nail salons in our community. However, you NEVER SEE US servicing US. I hear complaints all too many times of how we feel mistreated and disrespected but still choose to patronize businesses where we feel inferior.

Nail Art

Graphic Designs are so awesome on nails! I was reading Glamour Mag the other day and really got inspired  by some cool stuff.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Also, I'am a little tired of the  crackle craze!! The reason being, we had the  crackle before OPI even launced theirs!! I went to a secret source and ordered some MIA secret crackle polish. Did you know that they were doing crackle nails in the 80's? Well...I decided to have some fun with it and start layering it!
