Natalie Byrne, Aphrodite Aesthetic Nails
“I am beginning my journey in my nail career. I have always been interested in the beauty industry. It is always evolving, and I plan to do the same.
I have attended Grenfell Campus (MUN) for the Visual Arts program and now I have a way to channel my artistic talents into something that I love doing- nails!
I have managed retail settings over the past 7-8 years and now I am ready to take control over my own business with Aphrodite Aesthetic Nails this spring, and also help push Atlantic Nail Supply further!
In my downtime I enjoy painting and spending time with family.
I look forward to meeting all of the customer base at Atlantic Nail Supply and working with such a great team!”
