With her roots lying in South Africa, in 2004 Shelley began her nail adventure at the Dream Nail Academy in Paarl, where she attended intensive training to become an All Round Nail Technician in a small group of four people. “I’m incredibly grateful to Sheila, the educator there, for her style of teaching, as she taught me the profession well. “Back in the Netherlands I combined my nail profession with my hairdressing career and in 2009 I opened my own nail salon. In 2018, I was one of the nominees for Nail Talent of the Year where I reached second place. I was so surprised and proud. I then started training for my first national competition and reached 3rd place, this was when my competition fever struck. In the years that followed, I’ve participated in many competitions, nationally and internationally. I’ve always won prizes so far, and can proudly say that I’m a national and international champion. I’m an educator for the LoveNess nail brand, whish I teach with passion, as I love to share my knowledge and watch students’ grow. Education is key to success in this industry.”
