BIOGRAPHY
Rachel Shim began her unexpected career in nails at the early age of 11. Practicing and experimenting on her mother and sister while ruining many IKEA comforters on her bed in Dallas, TX. It was only natural for her to obtain a beauty license in Cosmetology by age 18 which opened the door for her to work in many high-end and upscale salons and spas. This lead to her working with some of Dallas, LA and NY’s elite. Later in her career she advanced to become a Celebrity/Fashion Manicurist in NY; specializing in Editorial, Beauty, Runway, TV/Film.

Rachel Shim is currently a Celebrity/Fashion Manicurist/Nail Artist who believes anything is possible especially when one operates in the realm of possibility!
