Velvet Nail Lounge, a new nail salon located on Portsmouth Avenue in Exeter, recently opened their doors and purchased new equipment with financing support from MVSB and the Small Business Administration (SBA). They offer a variety of premier manicure, pedicure, nail art and other beauty services.

Owner Lizzy Bui has been a nail artist for over 10 years and is certified in the electric nail file, luminary multi-flex gel, dry manicuring and dry pedicuring. She worked closely with Tina Simpson, MVSB Vice President, Commercial Loan Officer, and used the Bank’s online Business Express lending solution to support her business needs.

“It has been a dream of mine to open up my own nail salon and it has been really exciting to see everything come together these past few months,” said Lizzy. “We were thrilled to find this great location in Exeter and I am thankful to Tina and the whole team at MVSB for walking me through every step of the process and answering all my questions.”

“Thriving local businesses are essential to the health and vibrancy of New Hampshire’s communities, and we are proud to support businesses at start-up and as they grow and evolve with new opportunities,” said Tina. “It was so rewarding to work with Lizzy on this new venture and we wish her continued success with her business.”
