I think every one who posts on this board are stars. That is Mr & Mrs Geek, Geeg, Ruth, Liza Smith, Anton Buckley and others who I haven't mentioned. They are stars for being so generous with their time and knowledge. I make sure I read every single one of their posts on this board.
I also like to see anything by Leigton Denny. AND I once had the good fortune to meet Ketan Patel - not only does he create beautiful nails, but he also has a great sense of humour!
I'm sure there are lots of others who I haven't mentioned!
Does anyone else get frustrated when they see a great set of nails in a fashion mag, but no credit to the nail technician?
(sorry if my typing is a little poor - I've just painted my nails!!!)
All of the people mentioned are independent contractors so they will set their own prices ... but WELL worth it to go. They won't bite and love to share their knowledge.
Remember, once upon a time, Ketan Patel came to me for 1x2x1 to learn competition nails ... he traveled form london to yorkshire, weekend after weekend for lessons and practice ... He thinks it was worth it!
it still freaks me out to be put in the same line up as people like samuel & jackie etc.
all i can say is success doesn't come over night, but when it does it hits you a bit like a thunder bolt.
one thing about the people on that list is they don't always know how much they r admired & if they do they dont show it.
i feel v. much like geeg in that if its worth having, it's worth sharing
p.s 1-1 training with a creative ambassador is £35 per hour + vat.
i personally really enjoy 1-1's & have done quite a few with members of this board.
i always allow more than the booked time the 1st time i meet someone as we usually spend x amount of time catching up with each others recent experiences!!
thank you for the kind words
love liza xx
While at GMEX this year I watched Trang Nguyen (Oh, I DO hope I've spelt that right!) at work on the Grafton stand and I was totally blown away by his work. He sculpted a nail in what seemed like seconds and then transformed it into a beautiful work of art with his coloured acrylics - it was in a league of it's own. I was so disappointed when the photographs I took of his work didn't come out properly - I'm no David Bailey, unfortunately. But I think he should definitely be up there with the others.
well geeg im sure ketan is right and his tuition with you was worth every min 8) i wish i could afford a few trips to spain for some one to one how cool would that be but alas stuck in sunny G.B maybe i could visit you next time your in leeds for one to one? good excuse for a weekend away
