Meet The Founder












 Shardae Layfield is the creator behind, CANDY x PAINTS. As a lover of all things self-care and beauty, nail care has always been her thing!

 Fast forwarding, as she traveled on her journey to become vegan, she began her research on ingredients in foods and products in her daily life, which ended up being more shocking and devastating than she could have imagined!

After discovering how harmful and unhealthy nail care can be and how porous your nails are that absorb these toxins... she was determined to create cleaner, safer, and effective products for herself and her community with diverse and inclusive representation at the forefront. 

Being an Atlanta-native has played a huge roll in the creation of CANDY x PAINTS. It has always been a priority to make sure CANDY x PAINTS represents culture, wellness, and self-expression for everyone!
