Courtney | Fingernails are Pretty


Oh hi there! When did you get here?! Doesn’t matter. Hi! I’m Courtney, owner of Fingernails are Pretty! I’ve been doing nails and struggling at life for 157 years now. I’ve worked at a ton of Toronto salons and spas but my ultimate fav is working in Winnipeg on my Pressies. 

So Pressies came to be out of selfish necessity on my part. I’m allergic to gel polish (super common for us folk who have been exposed to it for so long). I was always super jealous of my own clients, but the only way I could wear cool nail designs was if the polish is already cured. So fast forward to about a year ago - I painted a set of gel enhancements, cured them, glued them on and BAM I had a set of bad ass nails. The birth of Pressies! 

I have 2 friends one of which is my own offspring, HP. I’m a single mom, she’s the best, and we hang out all day everyday. Nails are fun. They’re for every single person who wants to wear them. Can’t wait to paint you a set! Seriously though, I should get to painting. Bye!
