A bit about myself and my career as a nail technician
I attended nail school in 2010 with EnVogue nail products. This company produced gel products only and so I became solely a gel technician. I have had three jobs in the industry since completing my course; my first for 2 years in a spa environment, the second for 7 years in a nail salon, and my current job at Demure Beauty where we offer a variety of services. I have learned a great deal at each and every job, from my bosses, from my co-workers, and from my clients, and I value every single lesson. I have considered teaching for many years, but it wasn’t until this past year that I felt supported and pushed to do it, and I am so glad I did! I have always been confident in sharing knowledge and experience.
We will be using the Ugly Duckling Nails system.
