Pamela Golightly was "green" before it was cool. The natural nail-care specialist has long been dedicated to eco-friendly practices since she began her career in 1986, ?servicing the community for more than 28 years? and utilizing paper wraps instead of fiberglass wraps and filing nails by hand rather than relying on electric files or coal-guzzling robots. Her thoughtful, all-natural approach to nail care has resulted in a slew of dedicated return customers. Unlike other processes that depend on heavy chemical use, her organic approach results in zero incidents of nail damage, mold, or adverse reactions from allergy-prone cuticles. Pamela's natural approach helps nail services last up to two weeks. This same awareness carries over into her community endeavors, including her frequent contributions to local schools and nonprofit organizations.
