Raised by rock-n-roll hippies in the foothills of Colorado, Rachael founded Acronychous to bring modern nail art and design to her home state. She's been quite nail obsessed all her life and vividly remembers spending hours perfecting her two-tone polish jobs in fourth grade. When visiting a friend in Brooklyn in 2012, she got a nail art gel manicure for the first time and her brain basically exploded.
Encouraged by her mentor and fellow badass nail tech Rachael Waggonner to express her creativity in a new way, she started nail school and was licensed six months later.
Having never felt comfortable, relaxed or particularly safe in non-standard, strip-mall nail salons, Rachael wanted to create a business that focused on excellent client relations, unique and original nail art, safe products and lasting results. She utilizes the best, new procedures and equipment for manicuring and pedicuring with small batch, hand made lotions and oils.
With a professional career spanning eight years in video games and customer service, Rachael brings a playful eye to her designs. She'll also ensure that you have the best experience possible and perhaps geek out on the new Star Wars movie a bit. A master knitter and all around crafty lady, her attention to detail, balance in design aesthetic and eye for pattern result in beautiful nail art manicures!
