Pure Bliss of Atlanta Salon

If you are in the Atlanta area and looking for an eco-friendly nail service, Pure Bliss of Atlanta is for you! I had the opportunity to try their services and learn more about the founder herself!

Zakiyyah Taylor is the founder of Pure Bliss of Atlanta, who started her business as a side hustle and then she turned full-time entrepreneur! When I first walked into her studio space, she made me feel comfortable as she began to work on my manicure.

As she worked, I began my interview about her mission, her company and what her goals are.


How did you get started in Eco-Nail Care?

” First, I started this business as a side hustle in helping one of my family members with her upcoming salon. I went to school (again) and got all the certifications to work, and the family member’s salon didn’t work out. Instead of working a full 9 to 5 job along raising with my one-year-old child, I decided to create my full-time business, Pure Bliss of Atlanta. “

What toxics should people be worried about in nail polish and salons?

” I focus on formaldehyde-free (a human carcinogen and irrinant that can cause rashes, irritation to eyes, nose and mouth) nail polish, organic lotions, and great ventilation. As a business owner that focuses on health, I do not create acrylic nails in my salon because of the chemicals and dust from them. I know fellow nail technician, who lost their child while working heavily in acrylic nails in a

What makes your salon different than others?

” First, it’s women-owned and black-owned, which is amazing for today’s growing minority
entrepreneurs. I focus currently on women, natural and non-toxic products. I am also a mobile business that does nails, waxing, facials, hot stone massages and more.”

What do you see for your business in the future?

” I want my business to become a wellness center that focuses on women’s health and growth. I still want to offer the original services I have today and also expand my space. I am heavily interested in aesthetics, the study of skin.”

Last question, what’s your favorite nail polish brand?

” Easy. That’s Orly Breathable Nail Polish*.”

Finally finished with my nails and her interview, I really enjoyed talking to her. The experience was enjoyable with the calm and personable atmosphere in her studio. I chose a gel manicure with the color ‘Schnapps Out of It!*’ by OPI*. It’s a dusty rose color that I feel is perfect for spring.

This was my first time getting a gel manicure and it’s supposed to last two weeks! I will be keeping an eye out for the time period.

The perfect color for spring!

I received this manicure for free exchange for an honest review of my experience and feedback of Pure Bliss of Atlanta.

The service I received was ‘Make Em Gelish at a $25 (and up) USD value.

Be blessed,
