I am a fully qualified and insured Nail Technicain with Training in the following techniques 

  • Acrylic Enhancements, Maintenance and Removal
  • UV Hard Gel Enhancements, Maintenance and Removal
  • Fibreglass & Silk Nail  Enhancements, Maintenance and Removal,  ideal for clients who can grow their nails but need a little added extra strength. Also ideal for mending those dreaded splits & breakages.

  • Sculpting Techniques, ideal for clients who love modern shaped nails that can’t be achieved with nail tips, for example the stiletto and ballerina shaped nail
  • Manicures
  • Pedicures
  • Safe E-File usage

I’ve completed a Level 2 VTCT Certificate in Nail Technology and an ITEC Level 3 diploma in Nail Services.

I have also attended day courses for IBX Nail repair treatment and OPI Gel Colour.

There are many Nail Technicians out they both salon based & mobile however my aim is too work with clients who can’t leave their house for personal reasons or have limited mobility. To help clients with severely bitten fingernails, rebuild the nails of clients who have lost them through health, accidental reasons or bad nail service experiences and to work with clients to grow long, healthy nails. Everyone deserves lovely Nails & that is what I’m here for.

Previous clients include those with social anxiety, Nails damaged through thumb sucking & Hyperhidrosis.  

I maintain a booking schedule of one client per evening. This means no rushing & reduced anxiety for you. 
On a creative note, having made Trainee Liquid and Powder finalist in the South Coast Nail Industry Awards in 2015, I’m hoping to enter into more competitions and compete on a national level.
