Home / People / Best Nail Technician / Vivian Nguyen (Rouge Nails Lash Wax)


Growing up, Kristy Nguyen dreamed of becoming a nurse. Raised in a family of manicurists, she learned the craft at a young age and later used it to pay her way through the University of Mississippi. But a year into the Hinds Community College nursing program, she realized that her true love was not medicine. “I really enjoyed working with nails,” she says.

Nguyen, who works at Rouge Nails Lash Wax, earned her certification as a nail technician and began working as a full-time manicurist in 2012. “I like connecting with different people and learning about them and their lives and occupations,” Nguyen says.

She offers a variety of services, including manicures, acrylic, dip-powder nails and pedicures, but her passion is nail care. “I love teaching people about what is best for their nails and what their options are,” she said. “I think that is very important, and people want to know.” — Torsheta Jackson
