Meet Miss Lucy

Hey there Kitties, so, here’s my story so far…

In 2013 I was an International Competition Groom, travelling with my various riders and their showjumpers, but having spent almost a decade working with horses I decided it was time for a change.

I returned home to Suffolk for a little time out with my family and to come up with a plan. I’d always enjoyed having my nails done and needed an infill but couldn’t find anyone near me to help. So by December 2013 I had ordered my first Essential Nails course and by the Spring was qualified in Gel Tip & Overlay and had completed the Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme.

Originally I planned to make a little extra money working part time, but by June I had completed my acrylic qualification and had a full time client base, there was no stopping me! I started out mobile, but after a year my back (never great after the years of hard work with the horses) an overflowing client list meant I needed to have a permanent place of work.

I moved out of my family’s country cottage to a small local town and converted a bedroom into a cosy, relaxed home salon, and my client list grew even larger!

After encouragement from clients, Facebook followers and my educators I completed my Level 3 in Education & Training in January 2016.  I spent a small amount of time educating with a brand team, but soon decided I wanted something different for ‘Miss Lucy’s’

As of September 28th 2016 I became an independent educator offering my own training, including group courses, 1-2-1 training days, in-salon training, Hosting in your area and Skype lessons. For more information click here.

My favourite system is Acrylic (L&P) and I specialise in bright and bold salon designs, nearly always with that added spangle embedding glitters and all things that sparkle. I love creating designs that are a little different and totally unique to my ladies, no one ever gets the same as someone else, I always find a way to make my designs one-of-a-kind.

June 2016 saw the launch of Miss Lucy’s Glitters, my own line of glitters for use with all types of nail art. What makes them special is that they are mixed by a nail tech for nail techs, I wouldn’t sell anything I haven’t personally used and can recommend/advise how best to use.  But Miss Lucy’s glitters grew from strength to strength and I made the decision to separate my businesses to make them easier to manage. So 1st April 2017 The Glitter Fairy was born.

With The Glitter Fairy I wanted to create an online store with a name/brand people can trust. To offer high quality products at affordable prices. Sourced by a nail tech for nail techs.  I pride myself on my limited edition mixes that all my customers love and keep coming back for more.

I am, on the whole, a one woman band. I have a dedicated team of ‘Fairies’ that help admin the Facebook group. But the day to day running and management of the website and shop is all me.  I’m very proud of how far I’ve come and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
