In 2007, nail technician Melissa Daigle left Montreal and her best friend, Julie, in order to make over the citizens of Victoria. Five years later, she opened up a new business, New Town Nails & Lash Studio, and recruited Julie, a fellow graduate of Academy of Creative Nail Design, to join her.
Now the Grand Master nail techs treat hands and feet to pampering scrubs and massages before decorating nails with shellac, acrylic, or gel polishes. Julie also relies on her five years of lash-extension experience to enhance eyes at New Town. She has training with not one but two lash-extension brands?Misencil and Xtreme Lashes?and is a Miscenil official dealer. Like a pirate's shoulder parrot, the extensions Julie individually applies to natural lashes are water-resistant and extremely glamourous. After 2?3 weeks, she can replace any extensions that have shed with the natural lashes.
