So where did it all start

White tippex used as french white nail polish in the classroom as a result of detention letters. It followed with school hostel “pamper parties” and always being late for a school dance. Then in grade 11, I started job shadowing for a school subject in a hair and beauty salon (Tosca in Tyger Valley Center). It followed a school holiday and occasional weekend casual job.

I met my first nail educator Erika Breytenbach at Caprice Academy in January 2005 where I completed an Acrylic Nail Education Course conducted by EzFlow Nail Systems. Completed a course in Bio Sculpture Gel Nail Care 2006. Through my first job at Dream nails in March 2005, I completed a course in all nail systems and Qualified through Nail System International in September 2007.

In January 2009 I met Sanmarie Botha and completed pedicures and manicures in Achievement award of advanced Spa Ritual Training at Logica Beauty Supplies Working at Ooh-La-La Nail Bar. My Job after that followed at Sorbet Group and training in Gelish, Acrylic, manicure & pedicure via Harmony. Dermalogica and Environ skincare training and exam. In 2010 I worked at Dion Lifestyle Hair Nail and Beauty studio.

I took my work experience and returned to my first educator Erika Breytenbach and worked for her daughter, Bertha Shannon Leonard in 2011 (SAQA qualified assessor and moderator). I worked for her for 5 years with the best work experience and training experience in my career. Nailsforu distributors, Capri Beauty a Capri Academy Clinic.
