NAILPRO-file Featuring: Candy Nail Bar
What products do you use in your salon and why did you choose them?
We use OPI, Essie, and China Glaze nail polishes. We use Artistic Colour gloss and hard gel for all of our gel services. We also use some Luxio gel colors as well. We work hard to find formulas and ways of mixing products to get super long-lasting results specific to our clients' needs. We love Artistic Colour gloss gels because the colors are AMAZING!! Plus, we use LED lamps for all of our services. Artistic Colour is one of the only brands doing hard LED gel.
Do you offer retail? If so, what’s your best-selling product?
Our line of sugar scrubs and creams called, "Nail Candy." They're made here locally and smell awesome!
What’s the best compliment you’ve received about your business?
So many, honestly! I've won awards for my business and a nice grant from my city for Best Young Entrepeneur in 2010, so that makes me feel super proud of my business skills!
I've been asked to collaborate on many nail projects which also makes me feel so happy because I get to use my creativity every day! I went to Las Vegas WWD Magic Show and did nails for the fashion brand Iron Fist Clothing after they saw my Halloween nails. That was super fun. I've done nails for street artist INSA when he came to Montreal to film a short art film and exhibit. I was thrilled I got to meet him. I'm such a big fan. He told me my nails were awesome and when I entered the gallery, there was a big still from the video with my nails in the entry way. I was sooooooooo estatic. Still am!
