With a career that has taken her everywhere from Hawaii to Las Vegas, Kelly has worked with celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, & Olivia Newton-John. Extensive first-hand experience has allowed her to design a product line built to last.

Luminary's Multi-Flex Gel is a base & builder in one and is the original "Structured Manicure." A first of its kind system that combines the ease of a gel bottle with the traditional potted gel application method. 

It is a truly versatile product that can be used in every aspect of a manicure, from a traditional gel polish application to a Structured Manicure & Overlay.
