RaNysia “Nysi” Fleming-Hooks is an LA-based licensed manicurist, originally from Long Beach, CA who specializes in unrushed mobile nail care services. Many ask, how did she discover her passion for nails? It started when she was a young child, Nysi was always intrigued by older women in her family who would rock long red nails, as this was the style and culture for black women in the early to mid 90s. She would frequent the nail salon with mother, grandmother, and aunt where they would treat her to a manicure and if she was lucky she would get a flower design.
She goes on to tell her story of how she was 8 years old and had to create a business for her elementary classroom’s model town project. The objective, every student in the class would choose a business to own in the town. Nysi chose a business idea relatable to her, a nail salon, where she provided manicures for the students and parents on Parent Night. It was such a big hit that the Principal requested a nail service in her office the very next day.
Throughout her life, Nysi’s passion for nails never left her and after receiving her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, she sought to pursue her manicurist license. After receiving her license in 2017, she decided to take a non-traditional approach and provide mobile nail services for women and men in the Los Angeles area.
During her nail career she’s had the opportunity to work with celebrity clients such as Laverne Cox, Ryan Michelle Bathé, Robin Thicke, Iggy Azalea, Trace Lysette, and April Love Geary. Nysi prides herself on offering her clients beautiful nails but more importantly, a true self care experience. Many of her clients prefer private at home nail services due to busy working schedules. Nysi states, the most rewarding aspect of her career is making people feel well taken care of and proud of their nails, toenails, hands, and feet; it can be life changing work.
