Mia Rubie-copy copy.jpg

Mia is a San Francisco native, and graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.S. in Business and Entrepreneurship. When her fascination with the nails on her favorite celebrities morphed into a full-on love affair, she applied her business savvy to open her own nail art studio, Sparkle SF, located in San Francisco’s Mission District. Mia finds inspiration in fashion design, graffiti, and abstract art. When she’s not painting and bedazzling nails, Mia can be found hanging out with her daughter and her French bulldog, Nacho.
