Kudos to Elite Nails

Bao Nguyen, owner of Elite Nails at 7544 Fay Ave., said it was his wife Ha Lai’s idea to spruce up their neighborhood by adding a cute little rock garden with African Milk Tree and other cacti along with a miniature water fountain in front of their salon.

“Bernini’s next door has torches lit up at night — fire — so the idea behind our display was yin and yang, having water to go along with the fire to create harmony.” Nguyen said the salon gets lots of passersby and Ha wanted their salon front to “look pleasurable for locals and tourists alike.”
