The first-ever Nail Icon

Kally Giang

Kally has been beautifying her clients’ hands for 15 years, crafting everything from modest manicures to alluring acrylics. Her roster of faithful fans would agree: Her personality shimmers as bright as polish. This kind-hearted nail technician raved about the talent of her fellow competitors in the Nail Icon Competition and humbly attributed her win to her steadfast supporters. 

She’s been creatively inclined from a young age and has continued to pursue artistry to this day, not only on nails, but also through drawing logos and creating decor for her business. That’s right, this ray of sunshine is also a tough-as-nails business owner of two salons: Kally just celebrated the grand opening of her second location! 

Kally’s prize winnings of $5,000 will undoubtedly assist in her newest salon — but the exposure from the two-page feature in Life & Style Magazine all about her and the beautiful nail art she creates is what she says she’s most excited for.
