Here at the Nail Tech Org we are literally obsessed with our growing community of insanely talented Nail Technicians, from all around the world. Let us introduce you to our Member of the Month for August 2022….
Hello @by_leahbispham !
Tell us a little bit about you!
I’m Leah, 32 and from Bolton. I am mum to a beautiful little girl Amelia!
I work part time as a nail tech (both home and salon based) and full time for my cousin in the construction industry.
My goal is to be a full-time nail tech and I cannot wait!
I qualified in acrylic nail extension in December 2020 and builder gel in April 2021 and it is safe to say I am now obsessed with all things nails.
I have such a passion for it and the industry!
How did you get into nails?
I stumbled across Kirsty Meakin’s Facebook page and found myself sat there for hours watching her create amazing sets, I then started to follow Nail Techs on insta and I mentioned doing a course to my Mum (my biggest supporter) and she told me go for it!
I wasn’t enjoying my job, at the time I worked for a large dental company, in their complaints team.
I had worked throughout the whole of lockdown and the job I once loved, I began to hate!
It was bringing me down and I knew then, I needed to do something about it. I did both my courses online, which suited me at the time, with working full-time.
Since qualifying I have never looked back, my only goals were to get better and to do this full-time!
What’s your fave thing about The Nail Tech Org?
Oh gosh, so much! The support from the educators and the NTO members is second to none.
I don’t think I would be where I am now, without the NTO, I just wish I had joined from the beginning of my journey.
It’s not just tutorials, it is an amazing nail tech family.
What’s your favourite course
I love the monthly business packs which are included in the Gold Membership, so so helpful!
I also love the back-to-basics prep tutorial by Amy, it was so helpful.
But I also loved Abi’s milky florals! Such a beautiful design, I’ve not yet had the chance to do it on a client yet though!
What are your favourite kind of nails to do?
Hmmm…. a builder gel set and although I do love a design which pushes me out of my comfort zone, I also love a simple but effective design.
Tell us about a holy grail product in your kit.
Most definitely Glossify Naturabuild and glossy top!
If you could sum up The Nail Tech Org in just 3 words, what would they be?
Innovating. Inspiring. Community.
