Angela Mortensen

Nail Technician

My name is Angela. I've been doing nails since 1999. I cannot even believe it, but I love what I do - I love meeting new people. I stay busy with a lot of regular clients who are like extended family. I specialize in custom form pink and white acrylic enhancements, and shellac manicures. My favorite quote is "She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future"
