Karissa Martindale got started in the beauty industry when a friend offered mentorship in exchange for looking after her clients when she went on maternity leave. Little did her friend realize just how much Karissa would fall in love with doing nails! She is a perfectionist with an artist’s touch, who is committed to the health of her clients’ nails. Karissa grew up in Southern California in a big family who helped her develop into the caring, detail-oriented person she is today. Shortly after graduating high school she moved to Gardnerville and now calls Lake Tahoe home.
You can find Karissa at Millennium in Gardnerville and at V'z Image Option'z at Lake Tahoe Mondays and Saturdays. When not giving her unique brand of manicures and pedicures, she spends her free time exploring with her dog Lola.
