My Love of Nails, Clients & Organic Wine
Alex , founder of Nail Crew was recently asked about her entrepreneurial journey and how Nail Crew began.
Question 1. Have you always wanted to own your own beauty business ?
Being a good mum, I wasn’t sure what to do with my life, so she offered me a few suggestions (eager to get me out of the house) I think I was 18, so being a perfectionist, creative and nimble fingered, making a living from nails kind of made sense. Feeling inspired I decided to take the plunge and was renting a space in a tanning shop in the same year.

Question 2. What is the best thing about your job ?
The best thing about my job… mmm, well, there are a few things !
I love when I hear our clients say WOW !
At any part of the experience, I make it a priority to give people an experience they’ve never had before.
The moment it clicks when you’ ve been teaching a new team recruit , to where they no longer need you.
The ‘aha’ moment. Thats’s really rewarding for me.
Accidentally stumbling across a great new idea that inspires a nail design or way of doing things.
Question 3. What do you like to do in your free time ?
Well if I can stop scrolling, which can be both good and bad, I also love strolling in Brighton for just as much inspiration, and finding new places to eat, and new organic wine to try. Lols pff
Question 4. What are your best nail care tips ?
Treat your nails like your best hair day.
If you want your nails to grow long and strong, trim and file every two weeks like trimming your split ends, and nourish the cuticle and nail with a rich penetrating balm.
Conditioner is to hair, like cuticle oil is to nails. You have to look after them in between salon appointments.
