Only 6 Months Remain

Klavish Faraj

Can you believe ½ of 2019 has already come to an end. What now? Reflect back on those resolutions and goals you set for yourself. It’s time to be in full throttle mode and completely crush those goals. As I am currently reflecting back on the resolutions I set for myself at the beginning of the year I noticed that I started with categories; personal, relationship, work, and continue…  I am glad to say I accomplished my work goals which were to create a nail polish remover for Júwon and quit teaching. Our Soy Lavender Nail Polish Remover smells amazing...

I experienced my first Eritrean wedding and had to change my name to fit the look! My best friend, Semhar, got married and was soooooo Júwon! She didn’t just look beautiful you could see she truly felt beautiful. Semhar was far from Bridezilla. She was calm, collective, and having a good time.

I once heard the saying, “I have the same hours within a day as Beyoncé and how I choose to use those hours are completely up to me.” This really stuck with me! We are all granted 24 hours in a day. Daily application of these hours looks different from person to person. How do I manage running a nail polish company, teaching, traveling, working out, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and being active in my community? Welp, let me mention I bite more than I can chew. I think I have a cape around my neck and tell myself “I...


Fooled me once, shame on you. Fooled me twice, shame on me.

Listen up so you don’t get fooled. This will be a straight to the point, informative blog post that’ll make you google, to confirm, the facts that I’m about to lay out to you. I feel like one in three women commit to shellac/gel nails. Please text them the link to this post NOW! Did you know the name, shellac, derives from the lac bug which is found in the forest of India and Thailand? The deposits of this insect are collected, turned into tiny flakes and used among many industrious. In grocery stores shellac is sprayed on fruits, like...
