1) Tell us about your business?

I am a mobile Nail Technician. I work with my clients in their homes at times that are convenient for them. Many of my clients are busy working mums who don’t have time to get to a salon, so I pop up in their homes/office and give them full salon standard treatments at home.

2) What area do you cover?

Most of my clients are in East Dulwich and surrounding areas but some are as far as Chiswick.

3) How long have you been working as a nail technician, where did you qualify?

I qualified in 2014 with Anna Lee who is London's CND education Ambassador and have continued to study and expand my skills every year!

4) There are lots of nail salons around, what makes your service different?

I am passionate about quality and natural nail care. Not only do I want you to have an amazing manicure and experience with me, but I want your natural nails to be in top condition underneath. I use the highest quality products available throughout my whole kit and I’m very meticulous about the finish of my work!

5) Do you have any plans to expand your service?

I have recently added lash lift to my service menu which is a great natural alternative to lash enhancements as well as St Tropez spray tans. Next year I am going to be adding even more nail treatments to my menu too.

6) What’s the latest trend in nails?

Right now it’s anything unicorn inspired. Pearlescent nails, baby pinks, blues and purples. It’s really fun and girly and can be really played up but also incorporated quite subtly too.

7) What is your personal favourite look?

I love clean and crisp nails, light pinks and whites with subtle glitters and foils is my go to.

8) Do you have any local 'food heroes’? We love to know about chefs, restaurants or even takeaways that you adore!
I love street food, it’s quick, easy and fun. I really like the Dog Father on North Cross road Market. My son always insists on stocking up on popcorn from Drum and Kernel Popcorn!

9) SJ Dessert Island Discs (Just for fun)- What 3 puddings would you take with you to your island?!!!

That’s a tough one, I’d have to say tiramisu, bread pudding and anything with salted caramel!
