I first started out in the Nail Industry in 1994. I initially trained with Backscratchers, learning how to do Fibreglass Nails. I attended the Beauty Trade Shows and it opened my eyes at where I could then progress within the Nail Industry, as this was were my passion lied . I worked as a mobile Nail Technician and from there to renting a room above a hairdressers for approximately 15 years. I then progressed through my training to achieve my Master Artist Nail Technician certificate with EzFlow Nail Systems, and then I was invited to be an Educator for them. I have then continued to work as an Educator for other Nail Brands , such as, Crystal Nails, Brillbird and Moyra. I now own a very successful Salon , Butterflies Nails & Beauty and Training Academy in Hull City Centre, with my Daughter, Milly, who originally trained with EzFlow , and is now a Brand Educator herself. We offer Nail Training from Beginners to more advanced nail courses. I have had a very rewarding and extremely enjoyable journey, learning new skills and techniques within the Nail Industry and have worked alongside some of the most talented people in the Industry. I have entered a nail com pet it ion, been a competition judge, assisted on a magazine shoot and Miss England Finals . My biggest achievement was getting my International Nail Artist Certificate with Crystal Nails, as my passion is for the art side of Nails. I also have qualifications in PTTLS, Level 3 Nail Services, Level 3 Assessors and Level 4 internal Verifiers. Last year, 2019, I became an authorised Educator for Swarovski Crystal Beauty Academy and also Pavan Henna Lounge. I am constantly learning new skills and new techniques to progress and grow further myself as I feel it is important as an Educator, to be able to pass on that knowledge and skills to new Nail Technicians joining the Industry . I' m also super excited to now be part of Hazel Dixon Nail Artist Academy, where I can build on my skills and enter the UK Competition circuit.
