Jana Arendas
I am a qualified Nail Technician with 10 years experience. I started my journey in 2011 when I self-taught myself. I had always been interested in gel nails and started by learning techniques and easy designs. Online beginner courses for me were the easiest way to learn everything about nails and also improve my english as a language. I then attended numerous courses with accredited organisations on several techniques. From the beginning, Crystal Nails was my chosen brand and I still have the same passion for it today! When I moved to my current home, I finally prepared my dream nail room and started work as a part-time nail technician as well as keeping my part-time job in a food factory. After several years I knew I could turn this into a full time profession and I left the factory and have never looked back. After many years of loving nails and improving my skills I moved my knowledge onto the next level and became a CN Educator. I specialise in gel nails, different extreme nail shapes, several styles of nail art and fantasy design painting. I am also proficient in acrylic system, acrygel and natural-nail manicures. My passion is nail art and freestyle which is also reflected in the various competitions I have competed in around Europe: International Championships 2018 and 2019 - 4x gold and 5x silver medals in Tip-box Gel painting category. Irish National Nail Tournaments 2016-2018 - 3x Gold medals, 1x Silver medal, 1x Bronze medal in Tip-box and Freestyle categories. Online competitions - 2012 - 1st place Student level and 2016 - 1st place Master level in Thematic Nail Art Category.
