Crystal Nails Supernova gels are my current obsession!  These coloured gels are totally different to anything else I own.  They adapt under different lights, changing colour depending on the type, and angle, of light that hits them.  These two photos (above & below) show the same shade (number 9) but as you can see they look very different just because of the lighting.  Totally amazing!


Crystal Nails courses – Coming Soon!

Many of you will know that in November I passed my exams with Crystal Nails to become an International Educator in Nail Art, Gel and Acrylic systems!

After attending a 2 day meeting over the weekend I am now ready to start planning my first courses!  To begin with I will be running beginners courses for gel extensions, manicure, pedicure, gel polish and acrylic extensions.  If you are interested in any of these courses please email

Advanced Gel Skills with Chrissie Pearce

On Monday 6th October I had an awesome day training in Cornwall with the amazing Chrissie Pearce.  (If you haven’t discovered Chrissie’s work yet make sure you check her out!)

Chrissie’s work is a real inspiration to me so I was really keen to go on some training with her.  The day I attended was Advanced Gel Skills, concentrating on sculpting techniques and French gel methods.  I was really pleased with my first attempts using the new technique Chrissie taught us and cannot wait to put these new skills into practice on my clients!

Jojo’s Nails is moving!


I am excited to announce that at the end of this month I will not only be moving house but will also be moving Jojo’s Nails into my new exclusive, private home salon in the centre of Newton Abbot.

My last appointment at Camborne House will be on Friday 19th September. I then have a week off to move, and appointments in the new premises will start from Tuesday 30th September.

As the new salon is primarily my home I will contact everyone individually before their first appointment to provide address details, please keep this address to yourself and do not pass on to others. The address will only be given to those with an appointment to keep the salon exclusive & private so that you are not disturbed during your treatment.

There will be a slight alteration to my working hours but any appointments already booked outside of these will not change. Future appointments will be booked within these hours:

Sunday & Monday – CLOSED
Tuesday – 9am-6pm
Wednesday – 10am-8pm
Thursday – 10am-7:30pm
Friday – 9am-6pm
Saturday- 9am-3:30pm

Thank you all for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Featured in Scratch Magazine – August 2014


I’ve been a reader of Scratch magazine for a number of years now, it’s a monthly essential for me. Scratch is by far the best nail industry magazine you can get your hands on here in the UK. It keeps me up to date on what’s going on in the industry, and gives me lots of ideas for my work. So, my new edition arrives at the beginning of the month and I’m perusing the pages when I come across this!


My nails in Scratch magazine! I cannot tell you how much of a dream this has been for me, I remember my first read of Scratch and thinking ‘one day I hope I’m good enough to have my work in here’. This featured image was used as part of an article about coloured acrylic and gels, and was alongside the work of some of my favourite nail artists that I look up to.

Thank you so much Scratch Magazine! This was a dream come true and I hope this will not be the last time my work is featured!

Bio Sculpture Gel – Now Available!


I am extremely pleased to announce that I am now offering Bio Sculpture Gel treatments. This is a brand I have been familiar with in previous years and I have been very keen to bring it to Jojo’s Nails.

Bio Sculpture is a fantastic option for those of you who find CND Shellac is not quite as strong as you’d like, or for those that like CND Shellac but want something that lasts longer.

Bio Sculpture Gel – The Original Everlasting Manicure

A tried, tested and proven system adding strength and durability to natural nails.

Bio Sculpture Gel offers a variety of gels to create custom made overlays and sculptures to suit every client’s needs, according to their lifestyle and preference.

Unlike a varnish that chips and peels, Bio Sculpture is a durable gel that is applied as an overlay on to natural nails. The gel is then cured under an LED light to give a strong, flexible, glossy finish which lasts for up to 3 weeks. It soaks off without damage to the natural nails.

No damage to the natural nails:
Unlike other nail finishes, Bio Sculpture Gel is a nail treatment applied as a coating to your own nails to strengthen and condition them with no damage.

With no fumes, no odours and minimal buffing, you will enjoy seeing your nails transformed to their exceptional potential.

Functional & fashionable:
Choose from a range of Permanent Colours, Clear or French. Or go for the glitter manicure for something extra special. Different treatment gels cater for different types of nail, tailoring the treatment to your personal needs.

Dries instantly:
Applied on to the natural nail as an overlay or sculptured extension, Bio Sculpture Gel dries under a LED light in your choice of colour or natural finish.

Durable, flexible & no more chipping:
Long wearing and chip proof, your Bio Sculpture Gel treated nails keep their well manicured look long after application. Excellent on toe nails too, with no worn or ragged edges.

Clinically tested:
Bio Sculpture Gel has been clinically tested to the highest standard with excellent results, taking care of you, our valued client.

As an introduction to Bio Sculpture I am doing a special offer of £5 off any Bio Sculpture appointment until 18th May 2014. Click here to view prices.

To book your Bio Sculpture treatments please call the studio on 07935221108, or you can Book Online.
