Since the moment we came across Kandi's Instagram page, (in 2013) we were in love! She is a ray of sunshine! Completely honest, genuine, adorable, hilarious and is an incredibly talented young lady! It all started with a small BSG care package. Never would we have imagined the unconditional support Kandi has been to our company. Thank you Kandi for your continued love and support, we love you!

2) How did you get into the nail business? How long has it been? What do you like best about the nail industry? 

"It was an accident. I was an artist first. I started doing designs on myself after I saw my room mates nails. It will be 7 years this year that I have been doing nails. What do I like best about the nail industry? All the diversity it has to offer."

3) When you are not doing nails, what are your top 3 hobbies?

"Now that Im a mother, my 3 hobbies are: Netflix, sleep, and scrolling through Instagram lol. Before I became a mother and a super busy nail artist.. I enjoyed acrylic painting on canvases, shopping, and doing random spontaneous things."

Awww, Blaise is so beautiful <3 He got it from his mama!

4) How did you hear of BSG and when?
"Bio Seaweed Gel reached out to me in 2013. I tried the 5 or 6 colors and noticed my clients nails weren't chipping after an extended period of time. The removal process was easy too and I immediately fell in love. I have been hooked ever since!"
Did you know that in 2014 we hosted a nail art contest with Kandi on Instagram?!

5) What do you like best about our Bio Seaweed Gel products?
"I love how long it stays, as well as its removal time."

9) If you could create your own BSG colour, what colour would it be and what will you name it?

"Already done! If I had a chance to do another, it would be a really soft mint color. The name would be "Dude You Need A Mint"."
