Nails By Life

Our story begins about here: Casey's friend saw a nail machine similar to our own at a trade show and thought it was pretty cool, as did everyone else at the trade show. And so the seed was planted. Soon thereafter Casey and his friend brought a nail machine to a convention in Denver, Colorado and it was a huge hit. This type of nail art is already popular in Japan and other countries much more technologically advanced than we. At some point in time Casey came up with the concept of putting this machine at a kiosk in malls all across the country, starting with Chapel Hill Mall in little old Akron, Ohio. Seems to be the birthplace of many good things already. Casey and Kristin are co-founders of Nails By Life. What sets this type of nail art apart from the rest is that we can actually print any picture off of your camera phone, digital camera, Facebook, any image off of the internet, and any image you can think of onto your nail. We also do any manicure, bling nails, design, pattern, gems, ect. You name it, we got it. Kristin thought it was amazing that you could actually put your memories of your life including kids, pets, friends, family, vacations, any treasured moments that were captured by a camera onto your nail. She read a quote by Isak Dinesen that said, "To be a person is to have a story to tell," and thus our slogan was born, "Let Your Nails Tell Your Story." Now we finally have our very own A-team including our manager Bethany and our nail techs Tiana, Brittany, and Arianne. We continue the theme of our kiosk by making our memories with each other and with our customers and yes we are always taking pictures riding this adventure called life one day at a time.

Nails done by Arianne Spiegel. My favorite one is the zebra because it goes with everything you wear!
