Tracey Hall

Nail Artist


With 20 years experience in the nail industry, Tracey has provided exceptional services at major salons & spas in California before relocating to the Bradenton/ Sarasota area. Her goal is for unequaled communication between the client and herself to ensure they leave very satisfied with the service provided. Tracey utilizes and recommends CND for Pink and White acrylics. If gels are what you desire, then OPI is a winner, either clear or colored. Her new favorite is Gelish polish, 2 weeks with shiny nails... Yay! Mani's and Pedi's are a must....Heres a tip.. Tracey massages the whole arm so a loose fitting garment that allows for sleeves to be rolled up is very beneficial. Can you say ahhhhh?
