What started out as a beauty salon has now morphed into a worldwide enterprise. Jim and Leslie McConnell began McConnell Labs in their Eugene garage ten years ago. Leslie wanted to find a way to help protect her clients nails after an appointment, and get them out the door quickly.  Her husband Jim, a polymer chemist, came up with a product that does just that. Light Elegance nail products is born.  In just a very short time, word spread about the product and they ship all over the world. They recently moved their business to Redmond because, Leslie says, it's a very welcoming community.  "We kind of always wanted to mover over the mountain to get out of the rain; that had a lot to do with it. And also I have to say, as far as a town goes, Redmond has been so business friendly for us. They have made it worthwhile and have taken an interest. And we just felt they were more interested than Eugene was." McConnell says they have already expanded their business and hired some Redmond residents. Now, because of the demand for their product, they are considering buying the lot next to their building and expanding even more.
