Angel and Tom Nguyen have been married for almost 10 years and the young couple hopes to start a family some day. But first, they want to get their new FishHawk business, Angel Nails & Spa, located right on FishHawk Blvd., just a few doors down from FishHawk Pizza, off the ground.
The couple is no stranger to nail services in the FishHawk community. Both worked nearby at local shops for years before feeling like they could venture out on their own.
The shop is located at 15274 FishHawk Blvd. and is open seven days a week.
Tom immigrated to the United States from Vietnam in 1994 when his family escaped and settled in Nebraska. He spent seven years in Nebraska before the family moved to Florida to find a warmer climate. Now, most of the Nguyen family is nearby between Bloomingdale, Riverview and Brandon.
Tom became licensed as a nail tech in 2000.
“We wanted to open a business in FishHawk because FishHawk has been so good to us,” explained Tom. “We love our new location.”
Angel has been licensed as a nail tech for five years and came to the United States in 2008.
In addition to owners Angel and Tom, other nail techs include Kim Nguyen and Linda Nihon.
The business opened in October and offers nail and waxing services including: Gelich Shellac, Acrylic, Pink & White, Overlay, OPI Gel, Essie Gel, CND Vinylux (weekly polish), nail repair and design, eyelash extensions, waxing services and Organic Royal Pedicures. Complimentary drinks and wine are available during services.
Full Shellac Manicure with French is $30 and for color is $25 no charge to remove old Shellac.
In addition, a client loyalty card is handed out on your first visit and every 10th service is free up to a $20 value.
It is the only salon in the area offering Essie Polish and single-use nail kits when doing nail services; once used, they are thrown away. Its hours are Monday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Credit Cards are accepted and gift certificates are available. Please call 684-4379 for more information.
