Klavish Faraj

Are you a nail or cuticle biter? Maybe your brush sways away from your nails when painting them and accidentally spills over the edge onto your skin. If you can relate, keep reading!

“OOOOO, Na Na What’s My Name? What’s My Name? What’s My Name?” One thing’s for certain: our founder’s difficult name! Her parents named her Klavish Ali Haji.

Some may apply this as routine when polishing their nails, others to mimic what they’ve seen nail technicians at the salon do, and a few don’t apply it at all because they are unaware of the benefits.
