The W Nail Bar is a full service nail salon featuring manicure and pedicure treatments, spa-like finishes, and the finest natural products.
Sisters Manda and Lauren had been searching for a clean, simple, and dependable nail spa in Columbus for years but had no luck. So they decided to create The W, a unique place where you could get a first-class affordable manicure and pedicure.
Manda Mason and Lauren Hunter are the founders of The W Nail Bar concept. Manda Mason has 15 years experience in sales alongside 8 years as a professional entertainer. She began her journey with Shadowbox Live at the ripe age of 17. She was the youngest person signed to the company at that time. There, she was a lead singer for the band “Bill Who?” and executed successful sales and marketing for the company. She went on to be the lead singer for numerous bands following her stint with Shadowbox Live, eventually recording an album and signing a distribution deal with Universal Records. For the past 8 years Manda has worked at First Data not only selling, but managing bank relationships professionally and timely. She has proved to be one of the top sales performers on her team, year in and year out. She consistently exceeds assigned revenue targets by effectively managing bank partners and self-sourcing opportunities. Four years ago she decided to put herself back through school on nights and weekends to gain a managing esthetics degree and a managing manicurists license. She had a vision of The W Nail Bar and wanted to start from the bottom up. Manda grew up in the grocery industry with a grocer for a father. She quickly learned to be successful; you must know every aspect of a business. It is after these years of hard work and discipline she is ready to bring her dream to fruition and put her sales & cosmetology background to good use.

Lauren has led a multi million-dollar business through people development and authentically building a brand from the ground up in the community.
