Hi, I’m Emily!
I grew up here in the Bay Area in a family full of artists, and creating beautiful things has always been an important part of my life. Even as a kid I can remember painting my nails with peel-off polish and decorating them with tiny sparkly stickers. After graduating from college and joining the corporate world, I fell madly in love with the new “nail art trend” I was beginning to see in magazines. I would visit my local nail salons, but any time I asked for nail art I would get a blank stare in return. I would settle for normal manicures, but the quality was inconsistent at best. I often found myself going home and touching up the manicure myself!
Eventually, I began to try the latest and greatest nail techniques on myself and was amazed by the results. With the right care, and using quality products, my nails were looking healthy, beautiful, and my nail art was lasting longer than ever! I realized that everyone deserved to feel this great about their nails, and the dream of Honey + Cotton was born.
Now, as a licensed manicurist, I take an eclectic approach to my work by drawing inspiration from all over the world. Whether it’s the best Russian-style cuticle care or the latest nail art techniques from Japan, my goal is to offer my clients a one-of-a-kind experience that’s tailored to their unique needs and vision for their nails.
To me, nail art is just that - art that we get to wear on our nails! Book Now and let's make some art together ♥
