Jacqueline Le brings over 16 years of experience in service throughout various industries. Her upbringing within a restaurant family has informed her ability to identify the layers of effective customer service. She recognizes that a good product alone cannot suffice for success - service is paramount to a well-rounded customer experience. This training has been fruitful when she pursued the bar and hospitality industry in the Chicago market and recently since opening Little Palace on King St here in Madison in Jan 2022.

She quickly found her footing within the nail industry after finishing her professional training. Pairing with her background training, she brings her meticulousness and obsessive personality to work tirelessly to learn all current innovations and techniques to the nail business.

Jacqueline has focused on the classics of the nail industry to set her foundation - acrylics, dip powder, gel polish. She's ventured further to more contemporary techniques - hard gels, soft gel caps, e-filing, health forward pedicures. Her creative toolsets have a little bit of old school and a little bit of new school - air brushing, ombrés, hand-painting designs, stamping, crystals, mylars, glitters, and foils.

Madisen Clark has been doing nails since the spring of 2018. She originally set out a career path in hairstyling to specialize in curly type hair. However, the stars did not align at the time and was suggested to try nails for the time being.

"What went from being an in-the-meantime situation quickly turned into a passion - aka obsession - over nails and I haven't looked back since."

Their obsession with nails has propelled their specialization in natural nails, overlays, and bespoke nail artwork. Like a true artist, she's still exploring her creative style while collaborating with each new set along the way. If it seems like it can't be done - it's likely that they'll find a way.

She has an entrepreneurial spirit and had launched her own press-on kits and nail health products before returning to work during Covid. She hopes to revamp her approach to offer these products again in the future.

Since joining us they've continued to grow their nail skills and have taken on leading the team as General Manager.

Leah might be lightning-quick in her service times but the end result is everything you asked for and more. She loves long nails and short nails just the same with or without art, but if you want pink she might love your nails just a little more than the others.

This sweet Cancer will serenade you through your services while filling you in on all of her current reads and shows she's binged. She's ready to be your new bestie with all the hot reccs.

Janie Almaguer started doing nails in 2019. A transplant from Texas, she's decided to brave the cold of Wisconsin and tackle building on her experience as a nail tech.

"Life is not perfect, but your nails can be."

Janie's passion for nails is centered on providing a manicure that leaves clients feeling better than when they came in. She loves to take on the challenge of nail art as she's continuing to grow her skills. Although her favorite color is black she loves to use bright colors on nails to make them pop.

When she's not at The Shop Janie spends her time with her kiddos, watching horror movies, and cooking up delicious meals, sending us all pics of the plate so the FOMO is real.
