When Tran Wills, Base Coat Founder, was pregnant with her fourth child, she wanted one last pedicure before heading to the hospital. While waiting for her treatment at a local salon, her nose started bleeding and she became nauseous from the harsh chemicals.
She immediately walked out. In her gut, she knew it was time for a better option—a salon that supported the health and well-being of everyone. That’s why in 2013 she founded Base Coat, the first non-toxic nail salon in Denver and one of only a few in the entire country.
