Step into Atori Elem’s Nail Salon and you are just amazed at what you’ll find. There is the pedicure chair – the manicure table and a pink backsplash – setting it all off. However, what leaves you in awe is the fact this nail salon is on wheels.  

This is actually the Rensselaer women’s second job. She worked in criminal justice but, a trip to the nail salon left her wanting.

So she decided to go to school for nail technician, and that’s where she found her calling.

She realized her full-time job was now getting in the way and working at someone else’s salon just wasn’t working!

So, she came up with the idea to create a mobile nail salon. She would call it Clawed By Tori.

She bought and rehabbed a bus, and hit the road last April.
