The start of my career...

"I did my Gelish & manicure course with Amy at Fingertip Beauty.  I learnt a lot with her and I am now doing so well in my own little nail business that i'm hoping in the future to go on the acrylic course and more, aiming one day to be as good as Amy is at doing nails".

Hand Painted Nails..

"I love that all the nail art is hand painted.  The Disney designs are out of this world".

“I wanted to start my nail career and came across Fingertip Beauty.  I did all my courses with Amy, and I never believed I could create nails as good as I can now.  the training is so thorough and Amy is really patient and offers so much support even after the course.  Would definitely recommend people train here and I am looking forward to more courses in the future”
