July 07, 2000 11:00 pm

After a two year break to care for her sons, nail technician Shawna Freeman began working this week at Tresse FX salon located in the retail complex at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Freeman, who previously worked with Tresse FX salon owner Jennifer Jackson at Scatinis, said she took two years off to be with her newly adopted sons Kerry, now 5, and Tyler, 3 and a half.

Because Kerry is entering school and Tyler will be in a good preschool, Freeman said she decided to begin working.

Freeman, who is married to Brookings-Harbor High School teacher Dave Freeman, said shes lived in Brookings for about five years.

Freeman offers manicures and pedicures as well as spa maniucres and pedicures, which include a parafin dip.

The shop also has a spa pedicure chair, which provides a heated massage to go with the mini hot tub for feet.

The artificial nails Freeman provides are not harmful to natural nails and dont have any toxic smells, Freeman said.

Freeman uses Light Concept Gel Nails, which are UV cured.

They come in pink and white to look like the natural nail, she said.

The gel system is the new up coming thing and the nails are pretty strong, Freeman said.

Freeman also offers fiberglass nails.

Her hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with evenings by appointment.
