Certified Onyfix Provider, Authorized Footlogix Educator & Distributor
When I was 16 years old I saw a television commercial for Fame School of Nail Design. I was memorized! Women working for themselves as nail technicians. Creating beautiful nails, connecting with women and men, and making my own schedule was very appealing. Unfortunately, the timing was not right. It took 10 years for me to finally attend and graduate from Fame School of Nail Design, but I did it. I became licensed in 2003.
I’ve had many business names, but the one that fit was Naturally Nailed. Established in 2016, I serve as the owner and head manicurist. A few years ago, I decided to find my niche in the industry and grow there. The obvious choice for me were structured gel manicures and pedicuring. And because my motto is “Create. Educate. Beautify.” I knew that continuing education was the key to my success to create beautiful and healthy skin and nails on hands and feet.
I am trained in advanced e-file techniques. I am Akzentz and Luxio gel trained. I am a Certified Master Pedicurist and am currently taking classes to become a Medical Nail Technician. I am also an Oncology Trained Manicurist.
I’ve been trained by the industry best and use a combination of techniques to improve and keep the integrity of my client’s nails. My brand favorites are Erica ATA, Luxio Gel Polish, Dazzle Dry, Luminary, Akzentz, LCN, Imperial Feet, IBX, Dad’i oil and FootLogix.

Hello, my name is Lakisha Dillingham, the new Nail Technician Apprentice at Naturally Nailed. I was born in Southern Maryland, but I spent my early years in and around the Fort Washington area. I’ve always loved doing my nails throughout my life but I lacked the technical skills to do them at a high level. Ironically, the last couple of months have taught me to take a chance and pursue a love that I always wanted to get better at; which sent me down a rabbit hole looking for the right materials to apply gel at home. I found and followed professionally certified educators and then I realized why not ask Angela Wigglesworth the most talented Nail Technician that I know.
We chatted about supplies and she mentioned the Instagram Live that she stars in with other nail salons named “Fleek on Feet” and told me that she had recently done a topic about apprenticeships so our timing could not have been better. After several discussions with Angela and my significant other, I decided that now is the best time to take a chance and become a certified Nail Tech and I have been on the path to apprenticeship ever since. Like Angela, I am a bit of a perfectionist so what I will offer every client is skillful artistry as well as a relaxing experience which will ensure that the quality of my work is at the forefront of the service I provide.
