"One of my fondest memories are that of my father lovingly trimming and cleaning my nails and pushing back my cuticles so my hands would look nice on our father-daughter dates when I was just a child." Who knew that influence would lead to a life long career path?

Southern California native and nail tech Ronna Jones has experienced the manicure evolution from the 80’s long, bright and fabulous looks to “natural is the current glam”.
She earned her Manicurist License in 1985 and immediately went on to refine her craft in high-end nail salons on Ventura Blvd in the San Fernando Valley. At that time Nail Art was a brand new trend and Miss Jones' skills in "hand painted nail art" and long trendy acrylic nails helped her to develop a full client base and a waiting list.
In 1996, Ronna’s career shifted when she became a Massage Therapist and successfully moved into the private sector combining a more holistic approach to the combination of nail and body therapy by offering “Spa Days” for her home based clientele and celebrities.
Ronna's career took another turn in 2009 when she was hired to give a manicure "on set" for a commercial. That day another door opened for her and she has been enjoying her developing career in commercials, television, print, celebrity, editorials and events ever since.
"It's an unusual niche and I love it! "
I have had the pleasure of working with production teams and talent to successfully achieve the goals they are looking for. I have extensive experience manicuring hands for close up HD camera commercial/print campaigns and creating a
fresh-clean-polished appearance for hand models and talent. I don’t shy away from challenges and creative suggestions and I thrive on the production atmosphere in studio and on location for commercial, print, and various events.
SKILLS: Natural nails, acrylics, gels, nail art, nail applications and hand makeup.
