Owner • Instructor • Master Nail Artist
Empowering others has always been my passion in life & I wanted to create a nail salon where personal growth was taught, celebrated & encouraged. With a twinkle in my eye and blinding faith that this is what the nail world needed TNB was born! Knowledge is the seed of empowerment so incorporating education has always been an important part of our community at Topcoat. I love hosting classes for my team that range from technical skills to business courses. If I know a thing or 2 about it I will gladly share my knowledge with you! Those closest to me would say I am equal parts introvert and extrovert, I have no filter, no social skills & my facial expressions are wack. I like to think the combo makes me a hoot to be around. I am a deep thinker and an empath so naturally art is my wheel house. You can check out my artistry here or stop by Topcoat and see a few in person.

If you know me, you know I am all about the balance between athlete meets boujee queen! I played division 1 college softball and loved getting dolled up on game day. Being a female athlete can come with sooo many different stigmas and I worked so hard to break the mold and make my own style! The best way for me to express myself and still be able to ball out was having some killer nails, fun eyeshadow, and the coolest bow. My momma always taught me to make sure your nails, toes and eyebrows are on point at all times. So here I am, pursuing my passion for nails and the love for empowering other individuals. I love meeting new people so come on in and be my new best friend!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have absolutely LOVED anything beauty related. I have always been the friend to do everyone’s hair, makeup and nails.
I also have an art background and for the longest time, I didn’t know what creative outlet I was missing in my life. After pursuing makeup artistry, I realized that it just didn’t give me that outlet I was hoping for. Fast forward a couple years and a dead end management position, it wasn’t until my nail tech at the time told me to take the leap of faith ‘because fear will always be there and life is too short to not being doing anything other than what truly make you happy.’

I’ve been doing nails for a couple of years now, and I absolutely love it! Nail art is my favorite and I love learning new techniques. I am all about the long claws, but that doesn’t mean I don’t welcome you natural length babes in my chair. My goal is to always make you feel comfortable during our time together and leave feeling even more confident about yourself at the end!
If you know me, you know I always have a fresh set of nails. I pretty much can’t function without them! I’ve always had a passion for art and creativity but never knew exactly how to implement that into my career path. After quarantine and doing my own nails, I realized this would be the perfect field for me! I’m super picky, detail oriented and love people. I can’t wait to learn, grow and perfect my craft with topcoat! Hope to see y’all soon.

I graduated nail school in 2021 and have loved doing nails since! Whether it is a gel manicure or an extra long acrylic set, I will always find the enjoyment of being able to boost your confidence. Besides we can either chitchat or vent, after all I’m cheaper than a therapist!
After learning how to do my own nails in 2020, and coercing close friends and family to be my practice models, I'm so excited to finally be taking the steps towards becoming a certified nail tech! When I have my claws on, I feel unstoppable, so my main goal is to help as many people feel the same way through self expression in their nails! Whether that's through classic short red nails, or long spooky nails in July, I want to help you feel, and look, like your best self.
I started my nail journey years ago, but I had to take a detour, because life happens. Now thanks to my family’s support and encouragement, I’m back on track!
I love to learn new techniques and ways to improve my self. Little details make me happy and I believe nails are part of it! They can make you feel good no matter what you are going through and I like to share that joy with everyone!
For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for all things beauty and fashion. My family likes to say I treat everyday like a game of “dress up”, and having a fresh set of nails has always been included in that! After pursuing a career path in fashion merchandising which I had always planned on, I decided it wasn’t quite right for me. I was having a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do that could bring me joy or allow for more creativity, and of my friends suggested looking into cosmetology school after knowing how much I love the beauty industry. After a couple of months, I decided to embark on my new and exciting journey in becoming a nail tech. I have always had an appreciation and love for the detail and imagination that goes into them! I’m so excited to learn and grow in this industry, as well as to give you a beautiful new set of nails!
I started my nail journey mid 2019 and was licensed right before covid. Since then I had to put a pause on my career with nails and found a passion for working and training reactive dogs. As time went on I knew I’ve always dreamed of creating beautiful nails. I found Topcoat Nail Bar at the beginning of 2023! Since then I have expanded my learning within the industry and I am absolutely in love with the salon and everything to do with nails! So come on in and let’s hold hands!
As women, we are often told that form follows function, or that we shouldn’t care so much about beauty and aesthetics when there are “real” problems in the world. I think that the people who think this way are inexperienced, and probably don’t have cute nails! In my life, I use my hands every day and a strong set of nails not only makes me happy but makes my skin and nails better equipped for daily life! If you agree or want to learn this for yourself, come give me a visit. We can be beautiful, functional queens together!
