2019 Professional Nail Academy, Japan
I spent some time in Los Angeles as a nanny back in 2018. As it happens – and I don’t believe in coincidences, the family owned a hair and beauty salon. The grandmother in the family used to come home with all sorts of wonderful nail art and extensions and I was looking at her nails in awe. I thought, one day, when I go back to Japan, I’d study to be a nail technician so I can do these wonderful nail designs and travel the world. And that’s exactly what I did. In Japan, I got my licence as a qualified nail tech, went back to the US, got my New York licence and started to work in a wonderful salon in New York City. London is part of the next stage in my career, and I look forward to serving demanding ladies in the EC1 area at Figaro London Hair & Beauty.
Without a doubt, it has to be New York Fashion Week 2021. I worked on a professional photo shoot for a fashion brand. An exciting day that required focus, attention and flexibility on a whole new level. Loved every second of it.
AREA OF EXPERTISE
I love long nails, so it has to be nail extensions. I use a topp-quality Japanese brand called Kokoist to build nails with Gelip tips. And I love to go crazy when it comes to nail art. From chrome powder Korean-style nail art to Swarowski and bijou – you name it, I can do it.
Kokoist, for sure. It’s a dream gel product made and manufactured in Japan. It’s durable and creates the smoothest surface for nail art.
Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. And when all else fails, just smile.
