Custom nail art The Happy Toko

The name

My roots are from Indonesia, the term toko is used a generic name for any kind of shop or store. Freshly painted nails makes me happy. So The Happy Toko is the perfect name.

How it al started

Owner & nail artist Justine

I always was addicted to nail polish when I was a kid. I even painted my nails with typ-ex and markers. But never had the thought to do nails for a living.
I studied Marketing Communications at the HAN in Arnhem and did my minor Visual Culture at the Amsterdam Fashion institute. Marketing is fun, but after 8 years it was time for a switch.  I always had that feeling to start a business myself, but I didn’t know what.
During my holiday last year in 2017, I was sorting things out. Wat makes me happy? What do I like to do and what are the things I don’t want to do anymore. It sounds a bit cliché but I was painting my nails and YES this is it! I have to do something with nails!

When I came back, I ordered everything I needed, practiced on my friends and followed a courses at Florence Academy and Salon Cosmetics. Besides painting nails I also found a passion for nail art. It’s so nice to be creative! I did a masterclass nail art in London at WAH Nails. Click here to check out my designs. See you soon in The Happy Toko!
