Meet Rebecca Landerkin

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Landerkin.

Hi Rebecca, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
The pandemic affected the plans I had for myself after graduating in 2019; I wanted to take a gap year and then get back into school. The school was put on hold for a while and I was not managing the quarantining very well.

This was exacerbated by the fact that my self-care routines were affected by salons closing. I went from getting my nails done every two weeks to nothing.

That combined with boredom allowed me to do research into how press-ons are made!

I started ordering supplies from Amazon, then ordering things from nail supply vendors. I have always been artistic so this put some of those skills to use. I started making press-ons for friends, then expanded to creating my own website to sell to anyone! LuxPress Nails was born.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The beginning of the pandemic was a little challenging in terms of shipping. With USPS being the most convenient, let alone the cheapest option, it was frustrating when they were experiencing shipping delays.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
