Clarity Collection Feature: Vivianne on Grounded

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

Vivianne, a nail designer from our Highland Park, TX studio created an abstract, geometric look using Grounded and Grace from our spring collection, Clarity. Keep reading to learn more about Vivianne, her journey as a nail artist and the inspo behind her swoon-worthy design.

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

Vivianne: I am originally from Austin, TX and worked in a safe salon environment out there. When I would come to visit Dallas and needed my nails done, Miniluxe is where I went. In time, I knew I would be moving up here and I wanted to be a part of the team. I spoke to a few managers before moving and knew this was where I wanted to be. I have been with the company for almost two years now and I enjoy going to work. When guests allow me to be creative, I love it that much more.

Miniluxe: What does “Clarity” mean to you?

Vivianne: To me, Clarity is being clear or transparent. Having clarity in life allows you to better see the goals you set for yourself.

Miniluxe: What does “Grounded” mean to you?

Vivianne: To me, Grounded means stability. It shows consistency, self discipline and organization.

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

Vivianne: Starting out, I wanted to do a little bit of everything. I have been doing nails for 8 years and it has been a journey. I like to consider my art style as geometric. I love any sort of complex, abstract, lines, shapes, etc. My style is anything that allows me to be as precise as I want to be or as abstract as I want the design to be.

MiniLuxe: Why did you choose Grounded as your color?

Vivianne: My favorite color is green, any shade of green really. The name intrigued me that much more and knew it was the color I wanted to highlight. I love the warm earth tone it brings out in the Clarity collection, but also love that it can also be a fall color. I consider myself a small town girl who loves nature, lakes, and trees. Grounded reminded me of home.

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

Vivianne: My highland park team has grown tremendously! They are the best team I have ever worked with. Working with women can be challenging at times, but overall we all work together. If we are in a group, we always help set each other up. If a station needs to be cleaned due to a designer or guest running behind, we help out. We stay as organized as we possibly can due to our studio always being busy which I love.

We are all one big family and I couldn’t picture myself at another location! – Vivianne Rocha.

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

Vivianne: My ideal MiniMoment is training my dogs and taking them to the dog park. I love to paint and sing (although I am certainly not good at all) and love to be outside. I consider myself a giver and if I can donate or volunteer, I definitely jump on the opportunity. Giving back, servicing people, and making them feel human again is always my end goal.

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

Vivianne:  My mother. My mom has been through the worst of the worst and I consider her my hero. She is probably the strongest woman I know. With loss, abuse, being a single mom, she always kept herself strong to continue raising me into the woman I am today. Without my mother, I do not think I would be as strong as I try to be for her. I am so proud to call her my mother. She has never left my side through my struggles and is the glue in my family. I admire the woman she is and admire how molded and brave she is.

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

Vivianne:  I will take on anyone with lengthy nails. I love having a bigger canvas I can work with. It gives me an opportunity to showcase my skill and precision in my geometric style.

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

Vivianne:  Although green is my favorite color, I would have to choose a sheer pink color for the rest of my life. If it were a Miniluxe color, it would definitely be Boston Ballet.
