I believe that students learn in different ways.
My aim is to support and provide a rich and varied learning environment, which allows all to develop their skills and abilities to their full potential.
Nina Lewis, Nails and Make-up Lecturer
I began my career in the Nail and Make-up industry studying in North London in 1992.
I initially started in the Harrods Hair and Beauty Department as a Nail technician servicing all nail treatments. I was then headhunted by Charles Worthington to work in his flagship store Goodge Street London as a nail specialist for Jessica nails. This role included intensive training by Jessica herself.
I departed Charles Worthington to pursue a career in the Music and Television industry working with Simon Cowell and Syco Productions, ITV and Sony BMG.
In later years, I was yet again headhunted by The Joy Goodman Agency as an Editorial nail specialist and went on to work on advertising campaigns such as Harrods Magazine, Vogue magazine, The Body Shop, Swarovski, Legally Blonde, Rimmel, Escarda and was also featured in an article in the femail section of the Daily Mail.
I have always felt passionate about transferring my skills and experience to others so in 2009 began studying towards Diploma to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.
I qualified in 2011 and have taught in various FE colleges and private sectors.
I am also a qualified Assessor.
One of my achievements includes mentoring a student who went on to win the Regional and National world skills competition, she is now a manager in COWSHED Spas.
I have worked in various further education colleges in Central london as a Hair, Nails and Media make-up lecturer and I am considered to be a Master in my field.
I have been a regular customer of Nina for a while and love receiving any form of nail treatment I choose to have. My nails are always flawless and there is always a lovely and chilled atmosphere.
I could not thank Nina enough for the make-up she applied to me on my wedding day. I was very impressed with her professionalism and as we all know, wedding days could be very stressful but with her very capable approach, she really helped ease my worries.
Cheri Grant, Fashion Designer
Nina is a really friendly and informative person when it comes to teaching nails. When I attended one of her training sessions, I discovered that there were more to nails then just painting them. I would also like to point out that her hospitality was second to none and felt thoroughly contented on what was taught once the session had ended.
