our founder

Arlene Trapp started her career in the beauty industry as a nail professional in 1984, and her entrepreneurial spirit led her to launch a beauty supply company and a nail school. Collaborating with experienced industry experts, she developed the en Vogue Sculptured Nail Systems gel product line, which has revolutionized the nail industry. Her experience and keen interest in the health and wellness of the professional helped her identify the need for new, more sophisticated products that would offer consistent, cutting edge technology, significant performance advantages, and safety.
