Valencia Burch, CMP, M-ANT, BS, MBA
I obtained my state license in 1995 and have advanced my training to include certification as a Master Pedicurist (CMP) and MediNail - Advanced Nail Technician (M-ANT). From 1997-2004 I owned and operated Studio 702 The Hair and Nail Gallery. In 2017, I established The Nail Industry Natural Nail Lounge of which I am sole proprietor and service provider. I also sublease spaces within the Nail Industry to other independent nail technicians who are owner/operators of their own businesses.
My main objective is health and wellness. I wanted to create a space where clients could find comfort, privacy, education and safe practices in a clean environment, while incorporating the use of many natural products to add an effective, yet gentle touch to every service.
I do not use metal blades or "cheese graters" on my clients...ever. I do however incorporate on occasion, the use of an E-File with gentle, safe application techniques for which I have been trained to apply to foot care services. Service procedures, especially callus services, are customized to the unique needs of each client.
The Nail Industry is a solution to those men and women seeking quality self care over expedited express shop experiences.
