Nail Technology Tutor and Technician
Experience
My name is Magda and I began my journey in a Beauty Industry around 8 yrs ago. That time I didn't know that much about nails so I have watched lots of YouTube videos and learnt how to do nails.After sometime I have noticed that I really love to do it and started to think about some courses to be more professional and to be able to provide treatments to others. First course I took at the CPBA Academy few years ago.
I'm working as a Level 3 Nail Technology Tutor and I'm also an online teacher for short courses and also as a Nail Technician for London's Beauty Agencies like Urban and My Beauty Squad in line with my own Beauty Business.
«The aim of Gel combo and Nail Art course is to learn how to apply the UV gel system combined with lots of different Nail Art Designs.»
