Samantha Raybould’s passion for fashion has helped college students get Creative with nails. Up and coming beauty therapists at Yale College in Wrexham are getting access to the latest in nail styles thanks to inspirational lecturer Samantha who has been sharing her passion for nails after an amazing experience at New York Fashion Week.

Samantha and her sister Lauren, a former BTEC fashion student, went to work backstage at New York Fashion Week creating beautiful nail designs and helping to dress the models. Co-sponsored by top nail range CND, both were armed with an array of the latest nail polishes, files and buffers to ensure the models’ nails were manicured to perfection. “I love the creative side of nails and make-up artistry,” said Samantha, who has been teaching for five years. She was on holiday in New York during the fashion week and offered her services to the organisers.

This follows from her experience of doing nails at London Fashion Week last year. Samantha has shared this sector leading experience with Yale learners to widen their scope of the nail industry, passing on the latest trends from fashion designers. “Nail art is getting even bigger and an increasing number of designers are looking for custom colours,” said Samantha.

Yale is the first college in Wales to become a CND (Creative Nail Design) Partner College, giving students access to the best nail products on the market and training in the latest techniques from their tutors who will be trained by CND to CND Advanced Master level.

Kay Pennington Sweet Squared Emissary said “Samantha is hugely passionate about nails and it was fun for us to be able to help her realise her NYFW dream; we are excited to partner with them in the future!"
