Meet Our Nail Artist, Chela!


What's one thing we'd be surprised to learn about you?  

Something surprising....that’s a hard one. Most people who know me already know this but I love love love Selena Quintanilla. She’s definitely an idol/role model of mine. Coming from Mexican descent myself, she’s someone I’ve looked up to since I was a little girl and I always wanted to be like her. She truly just radiated happiness and kindness while she was here with us and I want nothing more than to do the same. I have a picture of her smiling framed on my wall and I look at it every morning for motivation!


What do you enjoy about doing nails?

I love that each nail is a tiny canvas to create art. I have always been really artistic and creative so this is definitely a great way for me to express that. Also, building relationships and meeting awesome people. That’s so rewarding! 

Any favorite nail colors this season?

No Panty Wednesday by Aila - fun summery pink 

Ginger by Aila - vibrant coral (that’s also great for this hot weather) 

Going Glamping by JRJ - the perfect nude


Any hobbies?

I love playing soccer on the weekends! It’s such a good stress reliever and super fun. I’m a proud mother of a 3-year-old little girl, so hanging out with her, taking her to the park or dancing it out with her in the living room are definitely some of my main hobbies.  Also...binge watching on Netflix. Sooo guilty of that! 


What type of music do you listen to?

I listen to so many genres of music, it’s hard to narrow it down. I love hip hop/r&b, so I’d say that’s a favorite. I also love me some Lana del Rey. 


Thanks, Chela! We're so happy to have you on our team!
