Olina's Nail Spa and Lounge off 144th and Center is like most other salons. There's chatting with your girl friends, getting a new color and you can even grab a drink, but the thing that stands out at Olina's, is the guy serving those drinks. 

Nick Nowatney, a Special Forces soldier in the U.S. Army who has been to five combat zones, runs the salon with his wife of 10 years. 

The couple works hand in hand. Nick's wife Olina, manages the spa along is a tech and esthetician, while Nick works with everything from vendor contracts to interior decorating. 

The couple says working together has brought them closer together, and its encouraged other clients to bring their spouses, boyfriends and other men in their life into the nail salon as well.
