About Jessica Nails
Who is Jessica?
Described by the New York Times as "The first lady of nails" Jessica Vartoughian is truly a success story.
Raised in Romania by Armenian parents, Jessica came to America in 1962 possessing just a traditional European education in the care of nails, hands and feet. This turned out to be the basis for what became her life calling: to create a system of natural nail care unparalleled in its beauty and efficiancy.
Considered the world's foremost authority on natural nail care, hers is a unique understanding of the importance of what it takes to achieve and maintain naturally beautiful nails. The Jessica System, as it has come to be called, is based on an approach so different; it works like nothing else can.
Jessica is emphatic on the subject of treating individual nail types differently. "Nails are not alike!" she will tell you. "Nails differ from person to person - just like hair and skin. It is impossible to treat all nails the same and keep them healthy". It was keen analysis of different nail conditions that led her to innovate products specifically designed to treat the dry, brittle, normal or post acrylic nail. The foundation of The Jessica System is its groundbreaking precision, its ability to treat specific problems. Moreover, she considers health an essential part of nail and skin care; and so her products are specifically developed to maximise the natural healing powers of the body and promote well-being.
As Jessica's reputation grew, celebrities became clients. Referrals poured in, and The JESSICA Nails System became synonymous with noteworthy customers around the globe. First Ladies, movie stars, models and VIPs are regularly seen having manicures and pedicures at the renowned Jessica Nail Clinic.
Today, Jessica is Founder and C.E.O of Jessica Cosmetics International; the young girl from Romania has made her mark in changing an entire industry. Hers was the first voice promoting and teaching natural nail care; hers was the first nails-only salon. Small wonder that Jessica is sought after by the media for her advice on nail care and is regularly quoted in magazines such as Elle, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Queen. Nail care expert, educator, lecturer and company owner, Jessica is a proud embodiment of the American dream.
