While you’re enjoying your long weekend and first real barbecue of the year, make sure to take a moment to remind yourself of the reason Memorial Day has been instituted in the first place: it’s the day the whole country pays homage to the fallen heroes who gave their lives for our nation, honoring their sacrifices. Today we take a moment to remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. To the family members, those who have served, and those who are serving, we salute you and send our deepest gratitude.
For the owners of the Nail Prop Shop, a military family-owned business, this day is loaded with meaning. Laura had been working in the real estate sector for years when she first moved from New York to Virginia to be with Phill: they met in middle school but were only able to reunite through MySpace years later. Phill has been serving in the Navy for over a decade, and he has had the chance to travel all over the world while serving our country. It was only after the military relocated their family to Georgia that the Nail Prop Shop was born.
Laura had been experimenting with at-home manicures for some time, and it didn’t take her long to realize what products could use some improvement. In an attempt to make the manicure process a little more user-friendly she went to Phill for advice, counting on his naval engineering background to help her design products for her manicures. After a bit of trial and error, they got to the development of the tools you know and love today, which they then shared to give every woman a chance to make the manicure process a little easier.
Everyone in the family has worked hard to get the Nail Prop Shop as far as it is today: Phill works hard on designing and manufacturing new tools to make your lives easier, Laura handles every single one of your orders from beginning to end, and their little one’s help is fundamental to test the durability of the products.
Honoring Memorial Day the proper way is fundamental for us: among your beginning-of-summer celebrations, remember to be close to the families of our fallen troops and honor those of our citizens who put their lives on the line so that this country could be what it is today, the land of the free, because of the brave.
