Hi, I'm Jess
I'm all about making you feel beautiful through the little canvases at the tips of your fingers or toes. Gloss Nails is dedicated to ensuring you feel special, are looked after and leave mesmerised by your new nails.
I am a certified Nail Technician and firmly believe that nobody is ever 'fully qualified', our training is an ongoing process. I chose to train with Monaco Nail Academy, which is known for its excellent technical training and I continue to grow and develop under their guidance with new products and techniques as courses become available.
I am also the Monaco Nail Academy Junior Mentor for the Northland region, offering in-person training which can be booked directly via their website.
Come and visit my luxurious salon in the heart of Mangawhai Village and experience the Gloss treatment for yourself.
She’s my nail queen of dreams, I don’t even need to tell Jess what I want because she just gets the vibe. I absolutely love spending hours in the chair creating with you!! Thank you
