Hello and welcome to Beyond the Paint, a blog by Bio Seaweed Gel (BSG).
Each Wednesday we will be releasing new content that will discuss all things nails and more.
Let's Take A Salon Tour
From coast to coast, we reached out to a few our favourite nail artists and asked them to show us their places of (art) work and their BSG collections! We are excited to share with you how our beloved #BSGSquad represents Bio Seaweed Gel all around the world.
Join us as we take you around the map to showcase the places where the magic happens for some of our favourite nail professionals in the industry! We also get a few words from them on their nail space inspiration.
@alyssanailtech | Syracuse, NY
On the inspiration behind the aesthetic of her space, Alyssa shares with us…
"I was striving for a really chill peaceful environment with modern touches for my clients to come and unwind. The blue wallpaper lends a spa vibe and the gold accents and chairs lend a modern twist so it’s a got a really great vibe to do nails!"
@brionnalmoore | New Castle, PA
On Brionna’s favourite spot in her salon…
"My favorite spot in my salon is my floral wall I just put up with my husband because I love greenery but I can’t keep real plants alive."
@clawgasmic | Basingstoke, UK
Although she is no longer doing nails on clients, Chantelle (aka Chan of Clawgasmic) is still present in the nail industry and shares with us her studio! Chan writes…
“I love the nail industry and have been doing nails now for 17 years. I ran my own salon for 7 years and now run an online training and coaching website with my partner Jouvan. We currently have 154 nail art tutorials available that people can watch whenever they like, we release new tutorials every single week and our goal is to help, inspire and support as many nail techs as we possibly can while creating a safe and positive place for them to learn.”
@denisenails_yeg | Edmonton, AB
Denise shares with us her favourite spot in her home salon is the couch and waiting area. When asked where she gets her design inspiration from, she writes…
"To be honest I am inspired by all the nails technician on social media, Helen, Chaun Legend, Tim, Evon Yen Vuong”
@gocaranzanails | Highland Park, CA
Incorporating nature as much as she can in her space, Guadalupe says…
“For my space I wanted to make it cozy, homey but at the same time breathable with a lot of nature. I have so many plants around!! I have larger windows and, in the evenings, clients can see the sunset behind us.”
@nailzbydev | Largo, FL
Devin takes us back to the 2000’s with her salon Nail Addicts and we are loving the nostalgia!
“Nail Addicts is more than a nail salon, it’s a flashback to the care-free days of the 90’s and early 2000’s. From the old school music videos playing on the TV, to the thrifted toys and decor, our space is sure to bring that happy sense of nostalgia—-it’s a creative space with a vintage chic twist that carries high end nail brands and specializes in hand painted nail art.”
@ricekittynails | Orange County, CA
How cute is this space!? Diana shares with us her inspiration, pulling from where she resides…
“My inspirations for my nail space is Tropical Blush Pink. Since I live in SoCal I wanted my nail space to have a feminine and tropic feel.”
@showmea_vanity | Saint-Laurent, QC
We love how clean and simple Shaumeya’s space is. She tells us…
“I envisioned my studio to have a warm yet welcoming ambiance allowing my clients to feel comfortable and relaxed so they can enjoy their appointment start to finish. I wanted to incorporate all things I enjoy without overpowering each other so that's where the marble, gold accent and my obsession with the color blue come into play. I also enjoy a touch of greenery and wanted to express my love for dogs with the box sign. 💙”
@yesicanails | Anaheim, CA
Check out that collection! Absolute beauty, Yesica shares with us on her space…
“My space continues to change to provide a chill environment. I love for my clients to come in and feel at peace so that they take this time to relax and not think about anything else🖤”
We loved seeing everyone’s salon and how each artist’s unique style is translated not just on nails but in their work space.

Wow I love all these spaces, very inspiring to get mine started as soon as I can…
I used to see @cheyanne_nails before she started her at home business. I follow her on Instagram now and just starting to check out her online nail training to help me get started. She’s so creative and I definitely miss her colorful energy! ;)
Hands down @showmea_vanity! love the ambience feels like im at a spa with her candles and diffusers! She has a very safe and sanitary environment pre and post covid. Her work is very sharp, detailed and uses the most natural products. She offers a great service and great variety of colors from Bio Seaweed Gel a brand I love on my nails. Cannot wait for my next appointment!
@showmea_vanity ‘s space is so clean and beautiful, love the color scheme and she creates an amazingly calming ambiance with her candles and diffuser! She’s been providing a very safe and sanitary environment since before the pandemic. Her work is very clean, detailed and she takes great care of my nails. She has provided me with great tips and advice on nail care and she explains each step she takes to ensure her clients are comfortable with the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone living in Montreal, QC (Canada).
I love my friend going to my friend @wmcbeautystudio! Great customer service and is so patient and detailed in her work!

Best nails polish
It’s fabulous that there are so many women business owners. I wish you, all owners and employees alike, continued success and perseverance in our current context!
On nail art, there are many great ones. (I do also enjoy dabbling myself. ;) ) I’ve enjoyed blogger @ehmkaynails for contributing to a broad audience and appreciate what Robin Moses has shared. I’d say my personal tastes are all over the place, but the visual effects I most enjoy combine a bit of femininity with a graphic/modern feel.
Rice Kitty Nails is my Instagram fav! Her designs are so cute and I always love to check out her page for mani inspo. 💕💅🏻🎀🧸😂
@alyssanailtech’s designs are amazing!
