Check out Lisa Selenschek for Base Coast Nail Studio

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Selenschek.

Lisa, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I was raised around the nail industry. For the past 8 years, I’ve been working my way through it. I started after I graduated high school, “doing nails” was just a way of earning money on the weekends, but still able to focus on school. I went to college for graphic design and marketing, but for the past 2 years, my passion for nails and all its entirety.

When we moved to San Diego, 3 years ago, I found this whole new perspective on the nail world. It wasn’t just a job, it was a whole new world. my eyes were so opened to the talent that was out there, the brands, and the skill! And I felt inspired! I accepted the challenge! I want to grow and be part of the best, so the past year, I took the part-time job I had to full-blown passion.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I specialize in nail extension, nail health, and nail art. I take everyday nails and add a bit of flair to them, I make sure that we take care of your natural nails and bring them to life, and I use your nails to create mini art canvas. I honestly love my craft, it took what I learned in art school and get to create something fun and enjoyable on a different media.

Having pretty nails is one of the things that makes me feel better, something eye pleasing to boost my mood, and I want my clients to feel that. I want them to have their better moments of the day when they visit me at my studio, I want them to feel like they’ve been pampered like they were treated with the utmost respect, and to feel PRETTY! The relationship between my client and I should something special, so every visit is like coffee with a friend.

My craft isn’t just nails, not just polish and powder, but hospitality and respect. I love what I do and I want my client to love what I’ve given them, if I don’t like my work, I’d do it over until it’s up to par!

What do you think it takes to be successful as an artist?
Not to be a cliche, but success only follows after you’ve recognized your fails. Succeeding takes work, making connections, and being part of a community that helps you grow with each other and learn from one another.

Success is about being humble and staying focus. Being outgoing and making sure you have a passion for your work.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
This is the age of social media, I have a Facebook page, Instagram, and a website – I am a marketing major, so it’s a must to have! Everyone can see my recent work on Instagram and watch stories of new products I received or how I create certain nail art. As well as see most recent specials and monthly promotions.

I would love to the nails of those who are into the crazy, awesome, funky design. Let’s have some fun and get color happy! And there are no “plain janes” single (color) ladies are welcome as well, including you gentlemen out there, Y’all need a clean up too. 😉 So you can book online and come to visit me at the studio and use our referral program to earn some and help spread the world.
