In one word, how does a manicure make you feel?
What’s your earliest nail memory?
Tiana: I left an antique scale at the salon with my grandma when I was little and am always reminded of that when I visit. Maybe that is why I keep going back.
Jill: Not surprising that Tiana played with scales when she was little. I enjoyed the smell of a children's nail polish I had and remember liking the smoothness of it on my fingers.
Tiana: Also not surprising, she always remembers odors and textures!
What role do each of you play in your company?
Tiana: I keep the lights on…

When do you get your best ideas?
