Comox nail salon gives to charity

A percentage of February and March revenue from all full and filled sets will be donated to YANA (You Are Not Alone).

Stephanie Clairmont

When Stephanie Clairmont was young, she enjoyed participating in craft fairs with her mother. When she thought about a career path, she decided to combine her creativity with her love of people to pursue a career in esthetics.

Learning by example from her entrepreneurial mother, whose Comox design/décor business continues to grow, Clairmont opened Pampered & Polished, a nail salon in Comox, earlier this month.

Offering a full menu of manicure services, allows clients to choose exactly what they want — from a basic nail polish application to a full set of acrylic or gel nails. She offers more than 60 different polish colours.

“I am so excited to finally have my business up and running,” Clairmont said. “I have dreamed of this for years while I put all the pieces into place. Some days, I just pinch myself when I think about the fact that I really have opened my business…and clients are happy.”

To celebrate the opening of Pampered & Polished, Clairmont will donate a percentage of February and March revenue from all full and filled sets to YANA (You Are Not Alone), a Comox Valley non-profit that helps families with travel-related medical expenses when their children require care outside of the Valley.

Clairmont earned her diploma in nail technology from Mirage Spa Education.

Salon services are available by appointment only at 1500 Skeena Dr. in Comox.
