Meet Monika Pupkute of Nail Garden Glendale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Monika Pupkute.

Monika, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Opened December 1st, 2016. Through sheer grit and perseverance, built and oversaw the construction personally. Arguably the nicest décor and ambiance Nail Salon in all of Los Angeles. I used to live in Dubai and had some friends here, I took a leap and dove into the L.A area hoping for that American dream. Nothing comes easy though, especially a small business in this era. The challenges were immense and could have broken us however we took it as a learning experience.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Finding high-quality staff in a competitive industry with such few new entrees and talent was and still is an incredible challenge.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Nail Garden Glendale – what should we know?
