More recently, business has boomed for The Nail Boutique after it was featured on VH1’s Love and Hip-Hop, where Yandy Smith launched her jewelry line, Everything Girls Love, in its basement which has a bar-massage area and outside patio intended for outdoor pampering in the spring and summer.
On Saturdays, the boutique’s busiest day of the week, clients are treated to a glass of red sangria. It’s become so popular clients are encouraged to make appointments beforehand. Carson says she’s pleased with the boutique’s response so far and is determined to keep business afloat with the customer always in mind.
“Many businesses start off good but then the customer service sucks,” she says. “We spoil you here—that’s the key to our success.” -Gerren Keith Gaynor
