Nail art is a beautiful thing, but it’s important to create a good foundation in order to show off that beauty. All too often I see nails online, with art to die for, but the nails are so bad, I am distracted by the ugly shapes and pointy nails pretending to be stiletto’s.

I asked Katie Barnes to join the education team at Be Inspired online, because she has made it her mission to learn all there is to know about the perfect nail shape. Plus she is so brilliant at explaining her craft.

This course is a must for any Artisit, wanting to compete, to perfect their salon application and to tighten up their skills.
