You were such an inspiration to me, in art, in life, in positivity. You were such a riot and a bright soul, you accepted me as a friend since the first day we met. I'm saddened that you left us. Your beautiful personality and Mark on this earth and people will never ever be forgotten.

You nailed it. You always did. Love you Shan!

In the beginning you were carols daughter, than you were my client, than you were my student, than you became my nail bestie. You will always be my nail bestie and I am going to miss you more than you will ever know. You taught me to be strong, and to push for more. You made every adventure we went on fun and crazy! I won’t let Carol go back to plain French nails, I’ll take care of her for you ❤️ I will miss you friend forever and always

I got to know you pretty closely. It touched my heart how you connected with animals so much you shared with me how you cried one day when you saw one on the side of the road. You had such a sensitive loving soul! I had the opportunity to travel to Vegas with you where you dressed me up and made me feel the most beautiful in a very long time. I remember the way you described you addiction to the smell of books and was so excited to get you one to celebrate a milestone. You were so touched and excited and smelled it on the spot. I got to camp with you and Richmond and experience the love you had for each other. I’m grateful God put you in my life and I’m sad I’ll miss you from my future. Much love to you and your family and Richmond. A beautiful soul that forever will touch our hearts!

Shannon. ..such a beautiful soul . I wish i had the chance to meet you in person . I have followed you since the beginning of my nail journey and asked so many questions that you were so eager and willing to answer. I was so thankful for that! And when we became facebook friends i knew immediately that you would always be one of my favourite people lol your sense of humor, aura and energy were absolutely amazing ..the videos of you dancing only made that more clear. We were the same age and even have some friends in common in real life even though we lived so far from eachother (such a small world!) I feel like it is a huge loss that i will never get to meet you in person. ..you obviously had such an amazing impact on so many other people....You are an angel that flew too soon and i will miss your posts and guidance . My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who loved you.

Shannon you we're our biggest Ugly Duckling fan and supporter and creator of #ducksquad. I remember when you first took training with Natasha and I, you were so new in the industry but had so much potential to grow. Let me tell you, I watched you grow and develop your skill and I, 100% always supported you and am so proud at all you accomplished. Your energy, drive and passion for doing nails was a force to be reckoned with. I'll cherish the Live we did on Instagram where you came up with a design you wanted me to do on my mom's nails. My mom loved you and always, and I mean always said every time I came in the door- "Did you see the set Shannon just did?!" My mom was a big fan of your work💕 I had the privilege of doing your nails twice and will always remember the time shared. You are loved by so many and the impact you had on so many people in this industry was unreal. I can speak from your Ugly Duckling Family that we will have you in our hearts forever💕

We love you Shannon💗

You are unforgettable. I remember the first time we met at the Edmonton CNTC. Your presence could fill a room. You were bubbly, energetic but most of all, you were encouraging. You always lifted up your fellow nail techs. You were always willing to help a fellow tech out if they had questions.
I will also never forget your generosity when my daughter Rose was born. You sent her a beautiful custom made onesie that my youngest daughter violet will wear in memory of you. I wish we could have spent more time together in person but I’ll never forget the social relationship we built online. You and your work will be missed dearly in the nail community. Rest well my friend.

Shannon thank you for encouraging me through my training as a nail tech, you were my inspiration to become a nail tech, your passion and love for the nail industry. Last time I saw you was at 7-11 on yale, I was paying for my drink and then we saw eachother, you smiled, squealed asked how I was(not good just left my husband) I lied and said I was ok. Then shannon you looked at my nails and told me you loved them! I never told you how much those simple words meant to me❤ in my heart I always looked to you for inspiration and I so admired you as a nail tech, encouraging other women to straighten eachothers crowns, we are nail kweens and you shannon are my nail kween....always💔 I should add shannon was on my bucket list, I was wanting bright pink barbie bitch stilettos and shannon would have loved it!!! Good bye Angel til we meet again my friend🙏
