Hello Nicola from @inphills !
Tell us a little bit about you!
Hi, I’m Nicola I’m 32 from Scotland.
I have a three year old daughter and twin boys who just turned one.
I’ve been doing nails for about 7 years on and off while travelling & having babies, but I just started doing biab since going self employed.
I’ve been self employed for about three years now and love it.
I’ve worked in salons, from home and even on a couple of cruise ships doing nails but now I’m in a local make up studio.
One day I would love to have my own shop or academy so right now I’m working towards that.
How did you get into nails?
When I was traveling NZ I had to make some extra money so I started working as a receptionist in a Spa.
They saw on my CV that I had studied beauty when I was 16 and asked if I would change to a therapist. So I did, and after not doing it for 6 years it was a total fail but they did have a nail section in the spa which I loved being in, so that’s when I began doing nails as much as I could.
What’s your fave thing about The Nail Tech Org?
The people and the community.
I work on my own and if I have any challenges, I don’t have anyone in the shop to ask or connect with, so I just put them on the feed and every time someone helps or puts my mind at ease.
What’s your favourite course you’ve done with us?
I haven’t down any yet but booked on to the educator elevation starting in January and I could not think of a better way to start my new year. So excited for it!
What are your favourite kind of nails to do?
Always loved French, different effect nails(marble, torties) and line work.
Tell us about a holy grail product in your kit.
Builder in a bottle. It’s a must have, it just transforms peoples nails.
If you could sum up The Nail Tech Org in just 3 words, what would they be?
Knowledge, motivating and community.
