About Us

Liz Nguyen started Urban Polish KC in 2020 with a passion for creativity and organic nail care. With over 2 decades in the nail industry she brings a wealth of artistic expertise, experience, and professionalism to her salon.

Liz has always been passionate about the beauty industry and spent her early career working in salons before meeting a handsome KU med student named Edward Urban. The two fell in love and started a family together before moving to Michigan to complete Edward’s medical residency. Sadly, in his third year, Edward was diagnosed with small round cell sarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer that offers very little time. 

The couple exhausted every resource but after grueling months of chemotherapy and medical bills Edward Urban passed away one year after diagnosis leaving Liz to care for their two young children. 

Liz moved her family back to Kansas City and in 2020 opened Urban Polish as a beautiful tribute to her husband and to provide for her family while bringing beauty and relaxation to her neighbors in Kansas City.
