What do you love about your job?  I love to do something different on the nails that no one has asked for before – something that presents a challenge, because I paint in my spare time so it plays to my skills.  I also love the social side of being a nail technician.  You meet so many varied personalities and people of all ages.  Many of my clients become life long friends!

Where do you get your inspiration from?  New products on the market are always exciting and inspiring. It’s great to try new ideas.

Which three items would you take with you on a desert island? I would of course take the essential nail file, toe separators and nail varnish!

Tell us something about yourself that might surprise people. I belong to an art group, and sometimes exhibit my work. I was recently awarded Highly Commended in a competition held by the Birmingham Royal Society of Artists.
