Kimberly, Nam, Amy, Thanh's story
Hi there, we’re Kimberly, Nam, Amy and Thanh Nguyen and we’re siblings who founded Topcoat with a mission to create a worry-free nail care ritual. Topcoat is a non-toxic nail salon designed with employee AND client wellness in mind. We grew up in the nail salon industry and witnessed decades of our parents and siblings working in nail salons with toxic chemicals and poor ventilation. We’re changing that. We’re reimagining the nail care ritual to be safer for employees and clients. As we got older, we graduated from college and found careers in tech, design, media and other industries and shied away from the nail salon industry. We’re taking back that narrative. We’re taking what we grew up with and creating a more enriching and empowering community, not just for ourselves, but for the people in Baltimore. We hope you join us!
