Tess Walters got her start in the nail business in the early 1980s. After training in parts of Oregon and Arizona, Tess moved to the midwest and opened up the first Puttin’ on the Nails in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
After some years Tess and her family moved to Logansport, where she set up shop on Linden Avenue. 10 years later Tess felt compelled to move to a bigger location to meet her growing needs as both a nail technician and artist.
Tess has always been inspired by art– from fabrics and textures, to landscapes and the sea. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest she has always been intrigued by the way our surroundings shape who we are.
Tess tries to incorporate her passion for art into everything she takes on. Her forays into beading, tole painting, and jewelry-making have driven her to find unique and interesting ways to push the boundaries of nail fashion.
Her Nail Class experiences over the last 31 years by the Nail Industries leading innovators, has helped shape her into the Nail Designer she is today! Thinking outside the box to Create New Ideas is what she does best! She loves using The Designer Paint Pen, for fine tuning her nail work! Tess is now the Proud Creator of The CLAZY Grip! Which fits over the Pen and adds stability while drawing. There are also Add On Products. Such as CLAZY Kits! Designed to embellish The CLAZY Grips. And Little Bits of CLAZY! Which are little 3D miniature chunks of NON TRANSLUCENT Clay. Each piece is Hand Manipulated by a Seasoned Clay Artisan to give style, color, and texture to every pieces of nail art. Tess feels the collaborative efforts between her and Her Clay Artist took the extra mile to make these designs POP! You are going to love the colors and patterns used in Her Newly Designed Products.
