EmpeNyx Nail Bar promised to bring something new to Atlanta with its grand opening in Tucker, but we had no idea just how serious they were, until we saw them unveil the two doves. Then we knew they were not joking.
From the salons décor and ambiance to its nice location in the shopping center off of Hugh Howell Road, everything seemed well planned out. A Tucker city official even came out to give a few words and attend the ribbon cutting ceremony with owner Natasha Bobbit. It was a touching moment for all knowing how diligently Bobbit had worked for this day, but of course, no one knew that better the Bobbit herself, so her tears of joy were all the more moving.
When we spoke with her before the opening and she told us about her awesome role model, her mother who passed two years ago from cancer was, we could tell how much she meant to Bobbit, but we think the most moving part of the ceremony was when she and her cousin released the doves in honor of her mother and another woman who mentored Bobbit.
While Bobbit is not a nail tech, she has several in house technicians and one makeup artist who gave complimentary manicures, pedicures, and light makeup applications throughout the event.
