About Me


After the long, childhood road of giving my mom, grandma and aunts "pedicures" for $1 (which consisted of mostly rubbing their feet with lotion,) and then giving countless makeovers to friends and trying every makeup and nail art technique under the sun on them and my self, I went to college to become a Psychologist.  Yup.  Being somewhat of an empath has always been part of my soul, but so has being creative and bringing joy to others.  After a few years of study and thought, I decided to try my hand at the beauty/wellness industry.  This is where I spent 11 years learning the ins and outs of running a small business, while being part of the front desk, and then part of the nail and skin care teams at an Award-Winning, mountain Day Spa.  I learned skills for dealing with clients from every angle.. phone calls, booking appointments, check-ins, check-outs, credit cards, service providing (nails/facials.)   The last few years there I felt like I needed a change, and since growing more and more crotchety in my old age, I wanted to do it by myself.  Cut to 2014... I started my own solo nail studio, and called it House of A.  My name is Alana (and also, I'm pretty Amazing and Awesome,) so I thought... come to my House, my Empire... where I will make your nails the best they've ever been!  Lol, but seriously... the best part of my job is getting to be creative and help my clients bring their nail dreams to life!  My favorite is when they squeal and giggle with delight because they love their nails so hard.  Makes me happy and tells me I'm doing my job well. My clients always tell me how much they appreciate my attention to detail and my creativity with nail art.. which they don't often receive at other, (lame-o) nail salons.  I love seeing my regulars and coming up with Hot AF (see what I did there?) designs while we talk about things from binge-watching the latest shows to feelings about divorce or job issues in an environment where we can be ourselves and do what we want!  Many people have told me that coming to see me is like therapy with a prize at the end!  Laugh, curse, cry, dance, hug, sing, whatever. 

You can do it all at House of A, no judgments here.

CHILDREN:  Kids = Distraction.  For you, and for me.  Even if they're great kids, what may seem like normal and innocent behavior actually keeps me from doing my 100% best job on your nails.  My work space is not the place for your kiddos, sorry!      
Please plan accordingly.  
DEVICES:  If you booked a manicure service with me, please be respectful and put aside your devices while I'm working on you.  I understand we might need to be accessible for a quick text or call from the kids/spouse, but let me just say... working on a laptop or texting/talking for the entire length of a manicure = NOT OKAY.   Basically, let's just be good human beings.

My Policies

CANCELLATIONS: Kindly give more than 24 hours notice for any cancellations or rescheduling.  100% of the service cost will be charged for no-shows and late cancellations.  No exceptions.  Please plan accordingly.  

Tips & Advice

If you booked a service that includes a design, try to have some ideas ready when you come in.  That way we won't waste your design time trying to decide what to do.  Take a  look at my Gallery Page for ideas, or search Pinterest and save a few pins for inspiration.  You can always text me your ideas ahead of time as well, if you want feedback.
For Pedicure services, it's usually best NOT to shave your legs that day.  Salt scrubs, lotions and potions I may apply can burn or irritate your freshly shaved skin.  Trust me, no bueno.
Don't forget your flip flops if you're getting a pedicure!  I have disposable ones if you forget, but let's create less waste, shall we?
