Nicky Pearce, owner of Natural Arts Clinic & Academy, Glasgow, commented: “I’m so glad that they have decided to blanket regulate all practitioners who undertake these injectables. In the past they have regulated the healthcare professionals (HCPs) but not other practitioners. This isn’t to say that HCPs are safe or properly trained either! But, there must be proper training and oversight for public health and safety at all levels of professional practice. That should always be the aim of any professional.”
Amy Bates, educator and owner of Beauty Rebellion, Walsall, commented: “Fantastic news. More needs to be done in this area with regards to clients’ mental wellbeing and self-esteem too. Ethics are so important in our industry.”

What’s something you’ve experienced in your career that was hard at the time but worth doing when looking back?
Michaela Phillips, gel nail artist and owner of Gelalcious, commented: “Definitely when Covid-19 hit. Not being able to see my clients was hard but it gave me the chance to upskill in areas I’ve wanted to look into for a long time.

I feel like it’s gone from strength to strength so, looking back, coronavirus definitely made me focus on what I wanted to do and has made me a better nail tech for it.”
