Kim is the owner of the hot, new nail salon in Lexington, The Nail Shop, located in Brannon Crossing. Kim was on my radar as a local Instagram content creator when I met her at a Galentine’s Party in February. At that time I heard her talk about her nail salon, which was in its early stages of development. So once I decided to start treating myself to regular mani’s this spring, I knew exactly where I wanted to go.
Kim and I bonded instantly over our creative and entrepreneur minds. It’s a unique and wonderful experience being a small business owner, and to add a female millennial on top of that, it’s even more rare. Every time I stopped in her shop over the next couple months, I looked forward to catching up and swapping stories about being a “boss babe” And yes- I am using that term ironically.
The sunflower fields in Paris, Ky are a special treat that presents itself for just a week or two in July every year. Two years ago, I was able to take a local artist there for some Lexington portraits and I mentioned to Kim that I would love to take her to the sunflowers and play in the flowers again. She was down and we were able to snap some beautiful portraits!
