Tammy Taylor Nails is an existing, well-established business concept with a brilliant and recognisable Trade Mark and history of more than three decades in the international nail industry. Mel Viljoen, a young South African entrepreneur discovered this jewel when she was searching for alternative nail techniques and products in 2015, a passion of hers from a young age.
