Marie Xiong

As a trainer, I love to see the students evolve. I love to see their techniques improve from the first day of class to the last day of class. It is especially important for students to know that skill is not something that can be developed overnight. My main goal for graduating students is for them to gain the confidence they need to head out into the real world and be able to apply all that they have learnt.

LISA MARTIN

Lisa started creating nail sets for friends and family as a hobby, after completing a short course 5 years ago. Two years after doing this as a part-time hobby, she completed her qualification and left her job in retail to focus on Nails full-time. Lisa explains her job as both exciting and rewarding. Never boring. “No two sets of nails are ever the same. You hear so many stories and build a connection with your clients. It’s fun to be a part of a Brides special day or just help someone relax and unwind after a stressful week at work. I don’t feel I’m just a nail tech, I’m also a friend and a therapist.” Lisa’s key to success…Love what you do…be patient, be persistent and don’t let setbacks deter you from your goals.

GABBY JOHNSON

Gabby’s journey into nails was inspired by two things. Watching her mum having her nails done when she was growing up and her Beauty Trainer. Gabby is driven to teach others how to complete a set of quality nails. Well known for her ‘flawless’ tans and quick turn-around on complete nail-sets that look amazing! Gabby’s business has been running for 10 years where she not only specializes in Gel nails but also lashes lifts, waxing, and facials.

Your Certificate III in Nail Technology includes insights from Guest Experts like Lisa and Gabby.
