Artiglio (pronounced R-tee-lee-o) is the creation of manicurist and esthetician Sarah Bland-Barbuto. The name Artiglio comes from the word "Claw" in Italian.
From a very young age, Sarah knew that this is what she wanted to do as a profession. Licensed nearly a full year before graduating from high school, Sarah operated her first salon in the basement of her parents house in Chelan, Washington.
Sarah lives in Bakersfield, California.
Providing her customers with quality products has always been of high importance. When "Rockstar" manicures and pedicures hit the LA scene, Sarah had difficulty finding cosmetic grade glitters that she could use safely on her clients. It became apparent that the industry needed and wanted products made specifically for this use.
After months of research and testing, Sarah finally found a product that met her tough standards and found a way to make it available to everyone.
While owning Artiglio, Sarah has chosen to continue her amazing and artistic nail work.
