Tara Cote

Tara is a classic perfectionist. “I guess you can say that I am a classic over-achiever, because I am always trying to make what I am doing better. When my clients walk out that door, I want their nails to be my business card.” After beauty school, she applied herself and quickly accepted opportunities to be on a competition team and also become an Educator after only being licensed for a year and a half. As a firm believer in never having too much education, she now helps other nail artists, especially students, to realize their dreams and potentials. “The crucial variable of turning knowledge into value is creativity, and that is what we as nail artists do…we create, and that is a prospect worth pursuing.”
