Linda's Nails opens doors in former Disinger buildingDecember 9, 2019
By CANDY NEAL
HUNTINGBURG — The owners of Linda’s Nails have a lot of experience in the nail business.
Partners Linda Duong and Eric Nhan used to own LA Nails in Jasper. Prior to that, they had a shop in Tell City.
They have brought that experience to Huntingburg. Their shop is at 404 E. Fourth St., in part of the former Disinger building.
The shop opened Nov. 20, and had its official ribbon cutting this past Friday.
“Business has been pretty fair,” Nhan said. “It is the winter time, so we expect things to be slower.”
Duong, who knows some English, has been a technician for 20 years.
“This is what I like to do,” she said through Nhan. “So I wanted to stick with this.”
Duong and Nhan are natives of Vietnam. They have lived in the United States for about 40 years, including five years in Indiana.
The duo operated LA Nails in Jasper for four years before deciding to sell it to move to another community.
“When we were in Jasper, lot of customers asked if we would do something in Huntingburg or Ferdinand,” Nhan said. “An agent asked us to look a place in Ferdinand. But the rent was too high. We didn’t want to deal with too much overhead costs.”
Moving to Huntingburg was more affordable, he said. And being in the downtown area has been good. “The afternoons get busy at times,” he said.
Linda’s Nails offers a full line of services for pedicures and manicures, including gel acrylic, gel powders. “Gel powders are pretty popular now,” Nhan said.
And on each day, customers will find Nhan and Duong serving customers and greeting them with a smile.
The business is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. People can call the shop for appointments, at 812-684-9898. Walk-ins are also welcomed. The shop also has a Facebook page titled Linda’s Nails.
