about me

Hey there lovelies, Maria here. 

Total nail geek and an absolute gel junkie! 
(that's real gel ladies, hard gel, not these Shellacy gel hybrid's currently having a wave of popularity).
& I have been passionately looking after the lovely ladies of the Gold Coast for over 30 years. 

 I'm proudly a 'born and bred' Gold Coast local and was trained by one of the coasts original nail salons, Ché for Nails in Coolangatta in 1986, god that makes me feel old!
Also I spent some years working at A Touch of Paradise in Southport, one of the first ever gel-only salons in Australia.
This was in 1988, way before most people had even heard of gel nails.

I’ve owned my own salons, studied with IBD  and Light Elegance, trained up my own staff and have just loved my industry.
After many years running my owns salons I took some time out and built my beautiful salon and worked from home for nearly ten years.
Now I have gone back into a salon, and love being with a team and enjoying the amazing community of Sorrento here on the beautiful Gold Coast.
As it's still my own business it of course still allows me total flexibility of appointments that benefits both me and you.

So for now, I'm happy nailing away here in Sorrento and hope to have you visit me there.
If you’ve had a bad experience with gel, or just wanted to try something different, or just unhappy with your current technician, call me for a chat, if nothing else I can arm you with all the info to make an informed decision about your nails.

Cheers for now little nail bunnies,
Hope to see you soon,
