Hi I’m Maria, I’ve been doing nails for 21 years. I qualified when I was 18 in Acrylics, Fibreglass and Hard Gel at college under my level 2 Beauty qualification.

 I did additional courses covering all aspects of nails and my Teaching qualification too. 

I own a hair and nail salon with my business partner in Rainford St. Helens Merseyside. I love everything nails and everything CJP. I fell in love with CJP 4 years ago , it is my favourite brand to work with, aswell as it being the best nail community for support , inspiration and encouragement.

I love acrylic design and hand painted art work is my passion. I also love to do bespoke designs for proms, weddings etc-the more sparkly the better and I believe more is definitely more.

I’ve always wanted to teach and enjoy sharing a passion for nails and the industry. I’ve suffered with anxiety over the years, and would like to help others who are wanting to learn but nervous of taking the steps to book a course. I think education is so important , as it wasn’t the best when I first qualified, I love to see how far it has come over the last few years and how amazing the new rising nail techs of today are.

As a busy mum of two under 5 , I don’t get much me time but when I do, I love to practice nail designs , exercise , meditate, read and bake. 

Fun fact – Im scared of aeroplanes, the sea , spiders and heights   I’m a true a Gemini and very indecisive. I love Disney ,animals ,tattoos, fashion, gothic art , skulls, bling , glam and anything different or out there , I would say I don’t colour within the lines when it comes to different tastes and I love to see a wide variety of styles,and colours, I think this is why I love nails so much as they are so versatile and every set can be so different and I can’t wait to push students outside of their box and find their true passion.

I’m excited to start educating for CJP and sharing their amazing program with you, I hope to see you at a course soon can’t wait to meet you xx

Lots of love
