Clarity Collection Feature: Vira on Grace

To bring our Clarity Collection to life we asked our studio teams to create a design featuring a color from the spring collection.

Vira, a nail designer from our Cranston, RI studio created a look using Grace, Blank Canvas and Reflection from our spring collection, Clarity. Keep reading to learn more about Vira, her journey as a nail artist and the inspiration behind her design.

MiniLuxe: Tell us about yourself and your journey as a nail designer – how did you come to work at MiniLuxe?

Vira: I’ve worked at MiniLuxe for over 5 years and have been doing nails for a total of 10+ years! I still love what I do even after 10 years. I’m still learning new things. It never gets old for me.

Miniluxe: What does “Clarity” mean to you?

Vira: Keeping your mind free from anything that’s negative, keeping a clear head space and letting go of anything that bothers you.

Miniluxe: What does “Grace” mean to you?

Vira: To me, Grace means simplicity and elegance. I have 3 children, a career and a partner. I do a lot of juggling, but I do everything with grace. I try to keep everything simple and hassle free as can be.

MiniLuxe: Tell us about your nail art design/style – how would you describe it and where did you draw inspiration from?

Vira:  I chose this design because it was the most popular look on my Instagram! So, my Instagram followers pretty much picked my design for me and I love the result! I’m all about what everyone out there likes! 

MiniLuxe: Why did you choose Grace as your color?

Vira: Not only is it sold out at our Cranston studio, it’s a universal color that caters to everyone – all ages and skin tones. It’s a color that EVERYONE can be excited about! It’s the perfect soft purpley pink. 

MiniLuxe: Tell us about your team at Cranston – how do you all support each other?

Vira: A lot of my team members and I have been with MiniLuxe from the very beginning from when we first opened. We take a lot of pride from trying to run the business and run it well. We lifted each other up! It’s a very friendly atmosphere.

“We lift each other up! It’s a very friendly atmosphere”.- Vira

MiniLuxe: What’s your ideal MiniMoment? What do you do when you’re not working to care for your mind, body or soul?

Vira: I love to meditate. I’m a busy mom – I cater to my children at home and I cater to clients at work. Because everyone’s happiness is a priority with my lifestyle, it can take a toll on my mental health. So, I like to take a few minutes where I’m alone in a quiet room or just sitting in my car where I can hear my own thoughts for a few minutes a day. That makes a huge difference. It’s my way to refresh my mind, body and sink deep into my soul. That way I can go back to catering to others with a clear head space and be my happy authentic self.

MiniLuxe: Who’s a woman you admire and why?

Vira: Oprah! She’s a self made billionaire, great role model for young children, and extremely smart. She was the person that suggested mediation for 12 minutes a day. It was a life changer for me. 

MiniLuxe: Whose nails would you like to get your hands on and why?

Vira: Taylor Swift. She plays like 10 instruments, writes her own hit songs and sells out stadiums. If anyone has hard working hands it would be her. I would love to give her hands the TLC she deserves!

MiniLuxe: If you could only wear one nail polish color for the rest of your life, what color would it be?

Vira: It would be Grace. It’s the perfect natural color. I could never go wrong with it. I can dress up and dress down, and it will still compliment anything I wear.
