Owner Of Essential Nail Garden & Lash Lounge, Licensed Nail Technician & Lash Artist.

Hello, I’m Brenda - Licensed Nail Technician & Lash Artist & Owner Of Essential Nail Garden & Lash Lounge, Established in 2018. I hold a certificate as a Meticulous Manicurist graduating from the Meticulous Manicurist Academy 2021, graduate in Wellness Care. I am 1 of 3 in Wisconsin that carries this certificate. I personally specialize in Pedicures.

It wasn't until my late 30's that I realized my passion for the salon industry. I truly love making people feel good by showing their personality through their nails. 

I am currently working on my Advanced Nail Technician (ANT) Certification. In addition, I am taking courses to get my
“Wellness Nail Technician” “WNT” Certification. Both of these certificates combined has set a great foundation to
expand my career in Podiatry. I am truly excited to add more credentials to the salon and implement all safety measure practices in order to make our salon run efficiently. Wellness foot care has been my passion since I graduated from my Nail Technician program. Stay tuned!

Brenda did a beautiful job on my pedicure. She didn't use any blades to cut or remove skin on my heels like the other salons around FDL... Glad I found this business with Google, it's nice to have a new place to go where foot care and health is a priority! My next appointment is already booked.

I had ingrown toenails and Brenda worked miracles left with no pain excellent service.

Alicia M.

I just had my first visit with Brenda this last week! I came to her for help with nail issues post my ingrown toenail surgery. She was very knowledgeable and took the time to assess what was happening. Hindsight, I wish I had tried her ingrown reversal treatment before getting the surgery. Thanks, Brenda!

You feel like you’re visiting with family and it’s very clean, relaxing, environment. I love my Spa days with Emmalee and all the girls ❤️

Charity O.

I always have Emmalee do my nails and she does amazing each time!

Melissa G.

I had my first gel manicure experience with Emmalee and it was just what I needed to help promote growth (so I could stop biting them) and strength - have had no issues with chipping, breaking, etc. even working in healthcare washing my hands constantly. Rosa was great also. After 3 visits my nails look better than they ever have. Everyone is welcoming, friendly and professional.

Rosa Aguirre

Licensed Nail & Lash Technician

Hello my name is Rosa Aguirre, Licensed Nail Technician. I am a graduate at MPTC Early 2022. I have been a nail technician at Essential Nail Garden & Lash Lounge since my graduation. In addition to nails, I am a certified lash technician, May 2022.

The reason why I became a nail technician is so I can exercise my artistic ability & let my imagination run wild. Also, it’s truly a joy to take a woman that has low confidence & have her come out radiating because of a good manicure. There is nothing more fulfilling then seeing a client’s demeanor change & feel ready to take on the world after their nail appointment.

I am bilingual in English/Spanish. I love to learn new nail techniques & new nail services I can offer.  I look forward to meeting you!

I received my pedicure from Rosa and it was excellent! She really got in there to remove calluses and gave me a great massage. My pedicures usually only last about 2 weeks, however my pedicure from them has lasted 3.5 weeks! They use great products! I also had a great time during my appointment with tons of laughs.

Sarah D.

I had an appointment with Rosa on February 24th for the first time. She did great! She was very friendly and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. We also had a few laughs together. I am so happy she and Brenda get to share a happy space together.


I decided to try this place out for nails with my two best friends before we leave for Vegas for my bachelorette party. Brenda and Rosa were extremely accommodating, professional, and knowledgeable. They were both very detail oriented and made sure we all left happy. Thank you Brenda and Rosa for the awesome morning. We will be back before my wedding in September.

Amber B.

Hannah is amazing! She took great care of me and my nails and made me feel totally welcome as a new client. I’ve found my new place to pamper myself! Thanks again Hannah!

Stephanie N.

Hannah does an amazing job. She is very detailed and focused. The whole salon experience is always a joy.

Emily J.

Easily the best quality pedicure I’ve had! Hannah took her time and was very detailed in her work! The massage part was well done and the nail polish has stayed strong for at least 2-3 weeks! I came here on a whim after a previously disappointing pedicure elsewhere. I’ll be coming here regularly and even booked a manicure coming up (which I usually don’t bother spending money on)!


Licensed Nail Technician & Threading Specialist

My name is Michelle, Licensed Nail Technician, Graduate December 2022 at MPTC. In addition, I hold a Threading Specialist Certificate. I offer threading as an alternative to waxing. I am very excited to bring this service back into the Fond du Lac area & offer it at our salon. 


Becoming a Nail Technician is a rewarding job for me because I get to meet different types of people, be creative and have people leaving looking and feeling good. 

I offer services the last Thursday of the month from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM in the evening. I hold a full-time job besides doing pedicures and threading.


I have a son who is my pride and joy! I also have a little Teddy Bear dog that I adore as well. 

I am looking forward to this next adventure in my life, meeting and getting to know our customers!

Must call the salon to book.

Stacey R.

I went here for my pedicure. From the time I walked in to the time I left, I felt very welcomed! The staff were so friendly. I had Michelle do my pedicure and she did a great job! I didn’t feel like my service was rushed at all! I’ve been to other salons for my nails where the staff are bouncing all over trying to service multiple people and this never happened here. My appointment was for ME. I will definitely be a regular here and recommend others to come here.

Ashley H.

The ladies at Essential Nail Garden are fantastic. All are so friendly and welcoming! And the service and skill are even better. The few times we've gone to Michelle, we've been in love with our nails! 10 outta 10 would recommend!!

Jaclyn M.

Michelle was my nail tech. She was super nice, even though I was a few minutes late due to the bad weather. I didn't feel rushed at all when picking what color I wanted either even though I was a bit undecided. I originally chose almond shaped nails and after a while changed my mind and wanted them a tad shorter and round instead, I felt bad for changing it after she worked so hard and took her time to get the almond shape just right. But she still made the change without making me feel bad about it. She was very calm and chill and fun to be around. The owner Brenda even came over to see how everything was going, which was nice as well!
I love my nails and definitely will return!
