“I am the owner of mistys nails and beauty salon and training centre, located in Kent which I name after my lovely daughter. I am also joint Founder & Director of Nail and Beauty Excellence Ltd. I have a passion for the nail industry and always strive for perfection. I am a Master Nail Technician, a fully qualified Trainer, as well as being qualified in Semi-Permanent Makeup and Beauty Therapy.

I have competed in various Nail & Beauty competitions, all over the country, taking home several trophies along the way, including a gold place for ‘nail technician of the year’ at the Kent Health & Beauty Awards.

I just love to share my knowledge, by teaching others and helping them improve their skills and reach their own potential.

I am a great believer that if you work hard enough, then you can achieve anything you want. You just need passion, dedication and a great mentor!”
