Deedee Desbiens   LCN Guest Artist  

 

DeeDee

  Originally from Las Vegas, NV, DeeDee Desbiens has been in the nail art industry for over 22 years, working coast to coast as an independent nail artist and also as a traveling educator. She first got her start with Vicki Peters of the Peters Perspective & Nailpro magazine and started learning the ropes of the industry while also building a clientele of her own. Discovering that nail art came naturally to her, she disregarded the degree in Business Finance she had obtained and ventured into a full-time career of nails. Within just a year of being licensed, DeeDee began entering in nail competitions, winning time and time again with an emphasis on pink & white sculptured nails and freehand nail art. It wasn't long after that she ventured into becoming a judge for these very same competitions that she once was a participant in. DeeDee's freelance work parlayed her into the fashion spotlight, bringing her opportunities to work as a nail artist for the MTV Billboard awards, backstage for VH1 and as an independent nail artist for many high-profile celebrities.
She uses her imagination and creative hand-made designs to set her work apart from the rest in the nail industry. Deedee has been an honored International Master Educator for one of the largest European company's known for the most grueling educator training. She shares the same belief that continuing education is a process in which you can never stop learning. DeeDee has proven to be a successful fashion creator, not a fashion follower.
