Passion and Natural Talent - the for Duchess, by Duke Difference
People often marvel at the our work, be it the extremely clean cuticle work for our classic manicures, or the complex designs we create. The 3D art, character drawings and fine intricate details that are the hallmark of our nail art are simply too difficult for some of our competitors to produce, we have been told. Our secret - natural talent and passion.
Since she was just 10 years old, our co-founder Andrea Koh has been able to sketch and draw anything that comes to mind, be it realistic portrait, cartoon characters or animals and nature. This kickstarted her love for the arts and painting, and she transferred that talent to the nail art that she paints for clients, producing the most detailed nail art that you do not find in your typical nail salon. Nail art is thus second nature to her, and you can be rest assured that she takes pride in every single nail that she paints for you.
Her sister and co-founder Amanda Koh, has been painting nails since she was 12 years old, always asking her parents to gift her nail polish whenever they ask her what she would like for Christmas. She has made all her female relatives her guinea pigs, often asking them to offer up their hands as tribute. Her passion for her job therefore transcends beyond just her motivation to do well in her professional career, but rather her grit to pursue her childhood dream.
As you can see, we love what we do and take great pride in all the work we produce. That's the for Duchess, by Duke difference because passion cannot be forced and natural talent cannot be learnt; you either have it or you don't.
Our nail salon is conveniently located at Kinex, just 350 metres from the Paya Lebar MRT station. We are thus easily accessible to anyone, regardless of where you reside.
