Just The Tips is Vanessa CC: a licensed Nail Technician based in Oakland, CA. Just like you, I always enjoy getting my nails done. My drive and passion for researching new nail trends and products led me to obtaining my Professional Manicurist license in early 2018!

I strive to give you the nails you always wished to get or saw online, but didn’t think you would ever be able to see on your own hands. I know it can be frustrating to go to a nail salon and not end up with what you had in mind (trust me, I’ve been there many times!). I encourage you to bring in nail pictures that you found online or elsewhere for inspiration. You have a cute dress with a super cool pattern? A painting you love? Some vintage jewelry that totally inspires you? Show it to me and let's have fun creating something totally unique!

As an animal lover and vegan, it's very important to me to offer vegan and cruelty-free options to my clients while still using high-end products. Please visit the “Vegan/Cruelty-Free” page for more information.

See you soon!
