Alaina Partridge

Owner + Aesthetician

I have worked in the aesthetics industry for 15+ years, I am a talented artist with an eye for detail and an affinity for talking to and learning about new people, creating tiny art to suit the individual. I believe that all people should be treated equitably, and am dedicated to body positivity, sex positivity (including sex worker rights), a variety of feminist causes and am an active part of the queer community.

The goal is to make every client as comfortable as they would be in their own home.  My love for education and art continually motivate me to upgrade my knowledge of the nail and sexuality world. I am inspired by my communities and do my best to support them. I look forward to expanding the services Your Polished Aesthetic offers, including educational workshops, training and more.
