A little background...

Growing up in beautiful Sonoma County, California Nikol discovered a passion for both painting and doodling. In high school she started working at a hair salon, which gave her a taste of the beauty industry. Soon after, she went to cosmetology school, and earned her cosmetology license in 2002.

Nikol put in nearly a decade working for MAC Cosmetics, where she elevated her techniques doing makeup daily! She was promoted to management, and was invited to work San Francisco Fashion Week. The success she experienced motivated her to launch Nikol Elaine Artistry
