While she is nicknamed “Baby Faye” in the industry for being relatively young, this does not take away from nail tech Faye Louise Dennis’s evolved business brain. If you mention clean, luxury or prescriptive manis, they are likely to be mentioned in the same breath as Dennis.

She has recently started educating other techs, offering private “perfection training” for those who want to get their manicures as precise as hers.

Emma Jackson’s nail content is so therapeutic to watch that you almost forget how educational it is. Her work stands out from the others in this list for the bluntness and precision of the free edge of her manicures – even when working on the shortest nails.
