THE TEAM

JOELLE

Joelle.jpg

Hi, I’m Joelle and I’ve been in the nail industry for over 13 years!

 

’ve been educating for over nine of those and it is a strong passion of mine. I love sharing my knowledge and pushing the boundaries to create the perfect set of nails. I own and operate a busy nail & spray tanning salon in West Auckland called Petite Nails. It’s the home to 2 other amazing nail techs who trained under me too!

 

I specialize in Sculpted Acrylics, Gel Extensions and Gel Polish.

I’m very excited to join the Lola Lee educational team and love using their industry-leading products.

I’m happily married and have 3 beautiful children and a chubby Bulldog called Snooki.

We train out of Petite Nails for classes up to 6 but have another space for larger classes with great facilities and off-street parking.

VAUN

Vaun AKA Vauns Claws.jpg

Hi I'm Vaun! Also known as Vauns Claws.

 

I started my nail journey in 2019 by training at the Premier Institute Of Education and got my level 4 NZQA Nail Technician qualifications.

 

I am qualified in Manicures, Pedicures, Gel Polish, Acrylic, and Polygel. Straight after gaining my qualifications I got an amazing opportunity to work alongside Joelle and start my own little business.

 

Since working with Joelle, I have gained more skills such as E-filing, Builder Gel and 123 Go Gel Extensions. Since working with Joelle I have taken on the role of 2IC in the salon.

It’s been a pleasure meeting all of you and I look forward to seeing all your lovely faces in our amazing Salon

JESS

Staff - Jess.jpeg

Hi I’m Jess, aka The Lady Cave

Having completed my training with Cut Above Academy in 2015 I’ve got almost 8yrs in the nail industry. Prior to that, I was a hair and makeup stylist. I’m super passionate, and love learning, and gaining new skills and knowledge. I’m trained in acrylic, acrygel, gel, and soft gel and specialise in hand-painted nail art influenced by a good animal print, floral, or anything marble.

When I’m not creating nail magic I can be found hanging out with my family, in the kitchen, or being creative in some other way.

 

Fun facts about me:

- I’m a Mumma of 7 (6M + 1F)

- I was the lead nail tech for DWTS 22

- I collect vintage sets

 

I am super excited to be joining the Petite Nails team and look forward to seeing old and new faces in the salon
