OWNER & MASTER TECH

(ON MATERNITY LEAVE)

Jennifer Bouare

Hello! I’m the proud owner of The Nail Lounge. I’ve been a nail technician for over 13 years now! I have always enjoyed the beauty industry, and I can honestly say I can’t imagine myself in a different career. Coworkers turned family, and clients turned great friends. Coming into work everyday is always a pleasure. We laugh, have fun and most importantly create beautiful nails! It brings me such joy seeing how happy my clients are when they leave the salon.

 

I love creating natural “looking” nails that will hold up beautifully for your busy life, I also love getting creative and trying something totally glam! When I’m not working I’m spending family time with my husband and two boys, (you can also find me strolling home sense) I have poured my heart into The Nail Lounge and I hope you love it as much as I do. I can’t wait to meet your smiling faces! 

*please note Jennifer is currently on maternity leave.

MASTER TECH

Mandy Marshall 

Hi i'm Mandy, I have been creating nails for over 5 years. The most rewarding part of being in this industry is how happy clients are once they leave the salon, and the satisfaction of a perfect product.

 

I started my journey in the art of nail services when my friend's mom trained me in full aesthetics, and out of all my options I found a love for nails.

 

I love being a part of such a great group of women. We have such wonderful and loving clients and I’ve been so fortunate to create some amazing friendships. That alone inspires me every day to enjoy my job as much as I do.

 

I love anything outdoors, camping, and fishing etc.. Hanging out with friends and going for dinner, but also relaxing at home watching scary movies!

ADVANCED TECH

Hey everyone I'm Sarah. I have  been creating nails for over 3 years. My favourite thing about providing nail services for our clients is the smiles on their faces when we finish a set.

 

I have always had a passion for fun nail art , and I have been getting my nails done regularly since high school. One day during my nail appointment with Jen ( the owner), I mentioned that I would love to learn how to do nails some day. Jen offered me a private course and I happily accepted! I totally fell in love and here we are now! 

 

I have always followed along with nail trends and I absolutely love trying new things. I love connecting with my clients on a personal level and catching up with them each month. 

 

Outside of the salon, I am a mom of three 8 year old girls and a dog mom of a 3 year old Golden Retriever. We love Geocaching and baking and exploring outside!

Jesse Blecic

Hi Everyone! I’m Jesse, and I’ve been in the beauty industry for about 6 years now. I trained at Tru Spa Institute, Nanaimo, BC, and have been a part of The Nail Lounge since the very beginning of my beauty career. I have travelled the world in the spa’s on-board cruise ships, and have helped people from all over the world look and feel their very best.

  

What inspired me to take this path was my love for people and my giving nature, I absolutely love spreading positivity and most of all confidence! I’ve always had an artistic side and getting creative with my work is one of my favourite parts about it!

 

I love the fun, upbeat environment at The Nail Lounge -  there is never a dull moment when you’re hanging out with us! A few hobbies of mine include painting, relaxing at home, spending quality time with family and anything outdoors - camping, swimming, or playing games in the sun! I’m so excited to meet you , and  to help you achieve your #nailgoals. Let’s make this the start of something beautiful!!

SENIOR TECH

Sheena Maughan

Hi friends!

I'm Sheena and new to the nail industry. I'm honoured to be newly promoted senior tech. The last six months have flown by and cannot begin to say how much I love it. Coming from the corporate world, it has been a breath of fresh air to work and learn with such an amazing team. I am driven to be the best I can be and work hard for each and every client. I look forward to each and every day learning and creating the best nails out there.

When I am not at work, I spend time with my family and my fur babies Jax, Sadie, Myla and Buddy
