I have been in the industry for over 8 years, nails are one of my passions, I firmly believe that getting your nails done, is not just that, it should be a pleasing experience in which you have a great time. This has allowed me to meet many great people who constantly drive me to become a better professional.
Originally from Chicago, IL, Rachel “RayBaby” Odom transplanted to Atlanta Ga at a young age. After graduating high school she took time to figure out what her passion was in life. In 2011 she was introduced to nail art by a friend who shared her love of beaitiful nails, It was at that moment that she decided to go her Nail Technician license from The International School of Skin & Nail Care. Though she is slightly new to the nail world she has performed as a platform artist at the Bronner Brothers Beauty Show and won the Club Kiss Nail Artist of the Year in 2013. Rachel is super excited to be apart of the INM team and looks forward to sharing her artistry with the world.
Hello!! My name is Cherise but everybody calls me Re-C. I am 28 years old, from Detroit Mi and have been doing nails for 10 years. I attended cosmetology school to pursue hair and came out as a nail tech! My Nail Tech name is ThaNailSurgeon. I came up with that name back in 2010 when I was working on a client and she needed major work done on nails that’s someone else had did. I had to really reconstruct her nails to get them to my standards. She stated “It’s like you’re doing surgery” and I replied ” I’m ThaNailSurgeon” and it’s been my name every since! My favorite services to perform are pedicures and overlays. I love doing nails. I dream about designs and ways to create different things for my clients to keep things fresh and original. I had the pleasure of INM asking me to become one of their artist and I was more than excited to accept! My dream is to have my own establishment and take my career to the next level. I also love being an inspiration and helping up and coming nail artist and don’t mind sharing ideas and tips to make them better. My ultimate goal is to become an educator in artifical nail applications and nail art while in a state to state nail tour. I want to “Perform Surgery” on the world and leave every one with a smile!!!
When Celine was about 12 years old, she went on a family vacation to Thailand. Her mom treated her to getting her nails done while they were over there, and this was a huge deal because Celine had never gotten her nails done before by a professional. The nail technician painted beautiful designs on all ten of her fingers, which prompted the young, intrigued Celine to ask endless questions about what the technician was doing. Celine and her mom trekked all over town searching for nail art materials, and then Celine practiced on her mom that evening. As the years passed Celine became relentless in practicing, determined to one day become as amazing as the woman that inspired her to try. And now here she is, almost a decade later, still practicing and perfecting the trade. Slowly, it began, the transition from doing nails as a hobby and for family/friends, to pursuing her passion and making a career out of it. Celine absolutely adores the creativity she can express through nail art, and how happy she can make clients when she fancies their fingers!
