Racine Nails, a family salon, is now open in Mount Pleasant | Local news
MOUNT PLEASANT – Racine Nails, located in the Village Center Plaza with Festival Foods and Kohl’s, is a new family-friendly nail salon that opened in mid-August.
The salon is owned by Anna and Simon Nguyen, a Vietnamese couple from Waukesha in the Racine region, and is managed by Arcelia Zertuche alongside nail technician Zoe Clarke. Andrew, 18 months of the Nguyen, can also be seen rolling around the lobby smiling at customers.
The show’s initial opening date was in the spring, but minor challenges in keeping the building up to changing codes pushed the date back to August. Its smooth opening took place in mid-August.
The salon offers traditional manicure and pedicure services, as well as waxing options. However, their pedicure services – which are tucked away at the back of the salon, near relaxing waterfalls and in dim lighting with spa music playing in the background – are one of a kind, Zertuche said.
“I don’t know of any other nail salon that offers this kind of relaxing and peaceful environment that we do for our pedicures,” she said.

As such, pedicure services are called “Peaceful Escape” for a basic pedicure with a hot massage; “Chasing Paradise” for a pedicure with sugar scrub and hot massage; or “Gates of Heaven” with all of the above and hot stones.
The salon employs around 11 techs with room for more, but Zertuche and Clarke said they liked the salon space.
“I often get that (clients) that we don’t rush them out,” said Clarke, who has been a nail technician since early 2020.
“We just want to make sure that we give that one-on-one time with the client,” Zertuche said.
The couple also acknowledged that it can be a bit difficult to gain attention and clients as a new salon, especially when clients have frequent appointments.
“They’re like, ‘I’m scared to leave this person,’” Clarke said. “And we’ll say, ‘Just try it.’ Maybe you will like the experience.
With a family at the helm of the new business, Clarke and Zertuche said that while they’re not related, it really feels like working as a family. “We’re having a lot of fun,” Zertuche said.
“Here we do everything as a family,” said Simon Nguyen. “We do everything for customers and make sure they are comfortable. “
