My Nail Salon
What are my qualifications as a Nail Technician?
I followed an approved programme by the Beauty Guild and I completed 7 diploma courses which covers:
- Spa manicure
- Spa Pedicure
- Gel nail extensions
- UV gel polish
- Nail art
- Nail extension maintenance
- One Stroke Nail Art Master Technician
I have uploaded some of my work here for you to see. One stroke nail art is the application of paint with just one stroke of a brush to create complex nail art - I also did pass my GCSE Art and Design, but this was a long time ago in the 90's. My favourite aspect of art was being able to use different types of mediums to achieve a desired effect such as clay for 3D art, charcoal and acrylics for painting portraits, abstract art, and sceneries. Now I do portraits and sceneries as nail art on a set of nails as my canvass is the product on a nail. My personal preference in nail art is usually fantasy and dark fantasy, popular computer game characters from commodore Amiga, playstation, Nintendo and PC, and characters from popular anime series.
The Guild of Nail Technicians / Association of Beauty Therapists - what is it?
The Beauty Guild and the ABT are insurance providers and also accredit courses that are offered by training schools in an attempt to raise standards. Being a full member of the Guild or the ABT not only means that I have proven my professional competency in the nail industry, but can also work safely with clients and carry public liability and personal insurance which all Nail Technicians should have. So you can be at ease that your nails, are in good hands! All the courses that I have done are accredited by The Guild of Beauty Therapists and I am insured with ABT.
