The beauty retailing behemoth has—finally—branched out into the world of nails. Known predominantly for its vast array of fragrances, assortment of makeup lines and top-of-the-line skin- and haircare products, Sephora now recognizes that nails belong in that lineup. The corporation partnered with celeb and editorial nail tech Melissa Bozant to direct the education efforts and XpresSpa Nail Studio to bring the nail bar concept to life.
